As you know I've been suffering major cravings the past 2/3 days.
I started my quit on the 21mg NiQuitin patch, which was great at killing the cravings, but wouldn't stick to me at all - I thought about buying shares in Micropore!
At my last smoking clinic it was suggested to try Nicorette patches, and as I was worried about going up to 25mg I opted to try 15mg which I started using last Friday when my prescription was ready.
Just been to my clinic and told them exactly how I am feeling, and they have suggested that I go up to the 25mg and see if that helps at all. They said that if I craving this much then eventually the craving will win. I do agree with that, I think it will.
I have concerns for the future though when I am meant to come back down to the 15mg that I will have the same problems then. Perhaps I should stop worrying about that until the time comes, I have enough trouble getting through each day at the moment!
So, we shall see what happens. Friday will be the earliest I will have a 25mg patch on, so will just stay strong through until then.
Day 16 and counting!
