Somehow I have managed 11 days smoke free. Can't believe how ill I felt untill I got the low dose patch on day 5. Only now the nausea and sleeplessness is going a bit. Can't believe how bad I felt but I hope I am turning a corner now. They said its harder to quit the fags than heroin but I didn't believe them, I do now and no I have no intentions of testing the heroin thing lol. Going to stick with the patches for another week and then try cutting them down to changing them every other day.
Still crave the fags but not as bad and I have only put on a pound in weight. I am following weight watchers and am only 7llbs away from my 5 stone goal. Is been so hard not to replace the fags with food. Well it will soon be 2 weeks smoke free and I am looking forward to that.
The upside to it all is my smokers cough has gone and I can breath a bit easier. Good luck everyone and stay strong
