I stepped down to 3 (7mg.) with the patches yesterday and wasn't even aware of the difference. Today I'm having the emptiness in my chest so I'm doing what I usually do-stay busy and deep breathing. I stay prepared for these days but I will be glad when they get down to the random thought.
My son is visiting next week-he'll be here Fri. with a friend of his. I'm ecstatic as I haven't seen him in 3 yrs. but also wary as they smoke. They have to go outside of course but since we'll probably be having some nice weather, I'll probably want to be out there too. I'll appreciate any prayers for strength that I can get. The one thing I'm not going to do is set myself up for failure by telling myself I can't get through this.
Hope all of you are having a great day. Even though I love tarheels I'll be so glad when March madness is over!
