Thank you for sharing about your journey. I am doing the same (resetting my quit date to tomorrow. It was yesterday). I can't seem to just put the patch on and not smoke a few cigarettesCigarettes are my security blanket . This way it is just mental torture about when I think I can have one then put the patch on. Or I can take the patch off and have one. There is no middle ground. Not to mention how this wreaks havoc on my self esteem since I feel like a failure over and over. I need to make the decision to not smoke another cigarette and stick to it. Mark Ironically, I quit once before for 10 years. Only I cut down over time with no aids, switched brands, and stopped buying them and bummed them for the sheer humiliation so that I would stop. It took about 3 months and I drank alot of water to get rid of the cravings. I smoked for 10 years and quit for 12. I am not sure why I started again. I didn't realize 1 is too many and 1000 is never enough. Now it has been 20 years! I'll gladly accept advice.
