Hi. Day seven after stopping a 20 a day habit for forty years. I am ashamed to say that, towards the end of my smoking days, I would sometimes wake in the night and not be able to get back to sleep until I had gone downstairs and had a puff. I am now using the 24 hour patches at night and I have to say that when I wake during the night now I have no craving to get up and have a ciggy. Why then, do I still get many cravings during the day even though I still have the patch on? Sometimes I think it would be nice if I could stay asleep for six months and then when I wake up I will be craving free!
