HiBest decision of your life! Also recommend Allen Carr Easy way to stop smoking. Dispels all the myths, illusions and excuses to smoke. After 40 years of smoking I have stopped in less than 4 weeks. Good luck and don't give in. Reduce all nicotine products to nil, you are not addicted to cigarettes but nicotine.

Hi yes thank you for for that I just downloaded on Amazon, had a restless sleep which was awful! Also had crazy dreams that felt so real is that normal?

Try taking the patch off before you go to bed. You don't smoke during the night. Put it on again in the morning.

Oh yes! The crazy dreams are definitely something new to deal with, I take mine off at night which helps but the dreams are still happening.

Took the patch off last night before bed and I got some sleep and no dreams so I think I might continue with that ☺️ On day 3 now, how about you? How was quiting for you?

Welcome to our community Fats123 , congratulations on making the best decision of your life to stop smoking. As Whale suggested, if wearing the patches at night could be causing the sleep disruption but is also a common withdrawal from nicotine.

Thank you this is my first attempt to quit and I must admit it’s been awful day today! But hopefully will beat this 😬 and hopefully get some good sleep tonight as I got nothing last night.
