Quit on February 7th 2018

I quit smoking on February 7th 2018. I started out using the patch. . some rough days but ive found over the last week i don't seem to need to use the patch everyday any longer. I was a smoker for @ 31 yrs .. Side effects I've noticed are bleeding gums.A few Bad dreams ' some insomnia. . But other that those ive been good.. I'm determined to do this.. And even with the side effects. . I honestly feel So Much better I have more energy and i can smell better taste my food better and breath so much better..

Also can anyone give me your thought's on where the best places are to place the patches on are at ? Any suggestions? ?

Hi Mlevine and welcome😊

Our lovely admin has given you good advice already👍🏼

Make sure you put the patch on a different part of your body each day and upper arm and shoulder are good. Many of our members have successfully used them and I’m sure...
