I am on quit day 55 today and for the past couple of days in particular I have been wanting to do away with the patches even though I have not finished the 12 week programme. I am currently on 14 mg but feel constantly reminded that I am not smoking because I am still obviously getting the cravings for nicotine. I also feel that because my mind is working against my body it's causing me to feel permanently exhausted. The problem is I am frightened to come off the patches too soon in case I relapse and would feel even worse then.
I am also worried about my weight increase (a stone now) and want to knock it all on the head before I end up back on the fags but carrying the extra weight and it will all have been for nothing.
Has anyone or is anyone experiencing similar?
