This is my 4th time attempting to quit. These attempts have all been in the past couple of weeks. I started using only the patch, but have now started using gum as well. I was hoping after a few days that my urges would decrease (and I guess they have a bit) but every morning and after I eat, I have an extreme urge to smoke. It's literally day-by-day. I'm on day 8 now. Thanks!
