I have been smoke free for 1 day! Yipeee! This is my first time trying to quit and the patch is helping more than I thought it would. I have three children (19,18 & 13) who are soooo happy I'm at least trying to quit. I've spent alot of time sleeping. My appetite has decreased and that could be a mental thing of "smoking a cigarette after eating..and if I cant smoke, why eat"?
