40 a day for about 10years. Never tried to quit before but suddenly I just thought 'it's time' so quit on Monday night. Am using 21mg 16hr patches. My question is.....
I used the patches so I wouldn't be too grouchy in work (I work in addiction, grouchy isn't good), but with the weekend coming... I'm tempted to not use the patches after tomorrow and just ride it out. Having never quit before and having no knowledge in this area, am I right in thinking the nicotine withdrawal phase will be cleared by Monday? I'm not worried about lapsing, I just need to be ok for work.
The alternative is that I maintain the patches and do a phased reduction, but that seems counter intuitive to me.
Any feedback or suggestions appreciated!
