I'm sure this has been asked before but hope no-one minds if I pose a quesion?
I'm using patches via one of the local NHS services. I was on the stage 1 16 hour patches but this week, the delivery hadn't come so my lovely nurse lady gave me the 24 hour patches instead (and recommended I remove them at night).
However, for whatever reason, I just can't make the b****ers stick and both yesterday and today said patch has fallen off without me noticing within the first couple of hours. I've honestly not noticed any difference without the patch- no sudden cravings or withdrawal symptoms or anything- and I'm beginning to wonder if I should dispense with the patches altogether? I have the lozenges at hand at all times should things get desperate (I do tend to take one of an evening). On the other hand, I'm aware that I could be trying to run before I can walk and the last thing I want to do is to risk losing my quit.
So- anyone have any personal experiences or advice they could share with me?
Thanks as always
