Hi All, Newbee poster here (I have been sitting on the sidelines reading advice for the last 12 days mind you!) I'm on day 11 of my quit, after smoking around 20 a day for the last 10 years. I've been using patches, but from previous 'quits' have learnt that the step 1 contains too much nicotine for my weight (I'm only little!) and gave me a nicotine induced 10 hour sleep/sickness before I realised it was the patch. So this time I have started on step 2 from the off, my only question is how long in anyones experience do you continue using patches. At the moment I really notice if I am not wearing one, not so much that I will immediately drive to the nearest shop but more that I want to scream at everything within a 10 mile radius. I want to be sure that I'm out of the habit of smoking before I take away all nicotine completely, but worried I am delaying the inevitable. Any advice from patch users as to length of time used etc would be greatly appreciated.
