Well, today is the day I try and stop smoking for good! I'm using Niquitin clear 24 hour patches. Never tried them before but i feel I'm ready to give up and feeling positive about this journey! Wish me luck!

Good luck Longsider81. How's it going so far?

I've literally just joined up to this community & will hopefully help communicating with others in the same boat through the wobbly times.

Glad to hear your sticking with it. You know that it will get easier but got to do the hard bit first.

Keep up the good work.

I used the patch as well 1yr 8mo quit. I stayed on 21mg for 6 weeks, then 14mg for 4 weeks, 7mg for 2 weeks, then I cut the 7mg in half for about a week. This worked for me I smoked for 45 yrs, I tried quitting before and feel I didn't stay on the patch long enough. Good luck!

Hi, can I ask if you used any vape or anything as well or just the patches alone? I’m trying to get used to the vape and patches but maybe I should use the vape without nicotine?

Only the patches, sipped water all day long.

I tried vaping with no nicotine before, but i found myself needing a cigarette even more

I'm doing great, I find the patches really help me. I've tried vaping in the past and it never really worked for me 😊
