Stopped 11 days ago, the first 5 days with patches and gum and after thinking about what I was doin I decided the best idea was to get all traces of nicotine out of my system asap, I would put a patch on and wait to feel it, the same with the gum. If I didn't have my patch or gum I would panic, this in my my opinion is the problem when we start to panic. We don't make normal decisions and the thought process is rushed and we don't give our minds time to relax when something stresses us. The last do I was using patches I had run out and got into a big argument over something small like there bein no milk, I know silly but that's the nicotine making me stress. I rushed out out to the chemist to buy my next box of patches (£20 rip off). Got home and fell asleep without putting one on. I had my last gum 5 days ago at 6 o'clock at night. The next few days were very hard my chest felt really bad and I had a cough that would hurt, I read that nicotine would leave the system in 48 hours so I set my clock and counted down hoping that I would then be normal and normal and not feel like I wanted to kill anyone that talked to me. I now feel great and strong towards the future without nicotine. You have to go through he'll to get to heaven. If you use something that keeps nicotine in your system then you can never reach heaven. Good luck everyone.
