Day 6 and have been using patch and supplementing with nicotine gum until about 10 minutes ago.
The thought of these withdrawal symptoms continuing for weeks as I step down nicotine just guarantees I will fail.
Going off of NRT is a risk, but at least I know nicotine will be out of my system in 3 days, and honestly, anxiety and withdrawal couldn't possibly be any worse.
Was hoping day 6 would feel like an accomplishment but knowing I could have eliminated nicotine from my system 3 days ago makes me feel like I've accomplished nothing. Even considering changing quit date to today.
