I started using the Nicotine Patch 4 days ago. I am using step one because I smoked 1-2 packs per cigarettes every single day. On a bad day, maybe more. Yesterday seemed to be the hardest for me. The urges to smoke were so bad and they occured what seemed to be every minute. I only had about 4 cravings today. My main goal for quitting is to have a baby. I suffer from secondary infertility and I believe it has a lot to do with smoking as it reduces fertility by 50% and ages your reproductive organs by 10 years. So that is my motivation.
