day 18 suffering from patches

Hello all sufferers

Day 18 here ...doin good thanx to this site .....BUT..... have had to give up patches .....really bad rashes and felt sick a lot ...dont think i was a big smoker just a long time smoker. Can anyone tell me what 50grams of tobacco over 10 ten days equates to in terms of fags per day ????? cos i think i may have overdosed on the replacement therapy ....:(:(

Hi Purdy. Before I quit I was smoking 75g every 7 days. I reckon this was 30 - 35 rollies a day. You were smoking about half that, so that would make it 15 - 17 rollies a day. That would be about one every hour - does that sound about right?


Hi Biggrin xx

Yes thats about right ...but i never really smoked all of a rollup....In fact (dont tell anyone this:eek:) i could make quite a fags from the ashtray:(


I bet there are very few smokers who can make rollies and have never raided the ashtray for butts. Reminds me how disgusting the habit is, and humiliating too.


I must have smelt awful !!!

Yep thats another thing about quitting ....dont have plan ahead re fag supplies...still have to get drink in tho... soz thats another site lol


Wave the patches around for about a minute before putting them on.
