Today is my day 5, doing extremely well considering that at some point today I lost my nrt patch. My cravings became stronger in the afternoon but not so serious so I have never replace it. I have also only using the patch during the day Now I have the dilemma if I should continue on with the patch tomorrow or just continue without. I decided to only use the patch considering in my previous attempt of quitting . This time I felt more confident in succeeding because I have found this site and the support of the community.  I used NRTs in my earlier attempts (lozenges, and vaping)  I was in control ultimately when out of hand and started smoking again I think the longest I went was 3 months. That's why I thought the patch is more efficient for me I am not in control but I am choosing not to smoke. 

Anyway, I just want to quit for good this time but I am scared. So I don't know what works better, sticking with the patch as suggested or go cold turkey starting now?
