I really need some advice here, I think I know what I should be doing next, but I could do with other peoples thoughts.
I have been back and forth to the doctors for smoking cessation since the end of July and have been using patches. I had 6 weeks on the 25mg, and at the beginning of September stepped down to the 15mg ones.
Now either last Sunday or it could have been Monday, I completely forgot to put one on, I also forgot the next day and then realized I had nearly done 48 hours without a patch. Since then I have been unsure as to whether or not I should put one back on as now it is either my 4th or 5th day nicotine free, as I'm not using the spray.
I have to admit that whilst not wearing the patch I have had more cravings, and have been very fidgety, I also suddenly feel a bit insecure and scared of being without nicotine for some reason!
I think what I'm wondering is do I go back to using the patches and continue my smoking cessation programme that the doctors have given me ( If I did this I would have 2 more weeks on 15mg and then another 2 weeks on 10mg patches). Or would it be silly to go back to patches when I have done 4 or 5 days without?
