I've been taking the patch off before I go to bed for a while now and it's letting me get a pretty good night's sleep at last, and no more weird dreams
But the side effect is that when I wake up I feel really odd - sort of empty and sad, the feeling you get after a horrible dream I suppose and it takes about an hour, a new patch and some NRT gum to shift!!
Am guessing it's because of no nicotine overnight, 'cos I used to have a fag before I went to bed and my morning one not long after I woke up (sad or what?) so my body's getting used to not having the kickstart. I'm loving not standing on the step in my dressing gown whatever the weather having a fag, yet another thing I'm glad to be free of!!
What I was wondering was though, is there anything I can do to to make it better - or is it just a question of riding it out until my brain accepts I don't smoke any more?
