I'm on day 37 and the past few days have stepped down to the second patch, 2 weeks earlier than recommended.
Hubby is on day 17 and doing pretty good cold turkey.
I'm finding I'm getting stronger cravings again, just when I thought I had them in hand. Likely due to less nicotine again. I have been trying to decide if I should continue with the patch or just stop all nicotine all together.
I am already getting tired of fighting and I feel like if I had just gone cold turkey to begin with I'd be mostly better now. Though on the other hand I also know that I wouldn't have made it this far without the help.
I am considering not putting a patch on tomorrow as I still have a few left and see how it goes. If I can make it through great. If not I will have a patch to put on and I guess I will know my answer.
At the moment my thoughts are just spinning and we have a huge thunderstorm with flickering power so I'll just post this for now.
Meh I feel like I'm starting all over again just from stepping down on the strength of patch.
