Hello all in quit group - glad to see that all are doing well even if some are taking a bit of a battering along the way. I have taken a bit of a bashing myself. Weeks 1 & 2 went really well but last 2 weeks been a bit problematic. And there you have it but problems normally just need solutions and we all seem to be pretty good at it :). My 21mg nic patches started to burn my skin so I dropped to 14mg and this transition has been fine - very good in fact. When I started patches I had to keep them on for 24 hours as my problem was my morning routine - get up sort a drink and have a fag. Now when I know I am going to go straight to sleep I take the patch off and just replace in the morning - major step forward. Have had restless sleep, heartburn spend all day grazing on whatever is in the cupboard or fridge I have lost my appetite but found the ones of at least 3 other people lol. I was reading about "brain fog" I have been having periods of light headedness but they pass and I think its the brain adjusting to the oxygen we deprived it of for so long. To all the people who are off on imminent breaks - enjoy - you deserve them. One of the reasons I quit was that my breathing was starting to sound like a bear growling (low growl). This has now ceased so something working here. Good Luck to all - God Bless JC.
