Now on Day 11 and still on the Mini's but have noticed that I dont need them as much as I did. I have combined that with 1/2 a 24mg nicotine patch but as i am having a nasty skin reaction to them I was wondering when it would be safe to go alone without the patches . I am not due back at the doctors for another fortnight but by then, my body will resemble a patch work quilt.!! Any thoughts ?????
