So as you may know, I tried r.i.p mode my quit date up a week because I ws feeling confident. That was a total failure. I resolved myself to stick with my original quit date which was Friday the 15th. I smoked right up the bedtime on Thursday. In fact I chain smoked lol as much add possible so that I would really hate my cigs. I put the patch on, and strangely enough o am having a really easy time so far. *knock on wood* I haven't had any real cravings, thanks to the patch- more like associations. Oh, I just ate, time to smoke- oops no it's not let's do something else. The patch is making all the difference in the we world for me, and I have different doses to wean off of that when I feel ready!@!
