Re: worried

Hi Sharon

Congrats on just over 1 month quit that is excellent.

I cut down from 15mg patch to 5mg patch about 8 weeks into my quit, on the advice of my doctor :-(....i didn't think I was ready, like you I was worried on how I would react,wether I would have bad withdrawals again.

Well I am still here and 9 weeks 4 days into my quit, and on a 5mg patch with 3 pieces of nicotine gum a day. The withdrawals were stronger but they settled down again within 72 hours of reducing the patch. I don't think the withdrawals were as bad though as they were at the beginning of my quit, as I was also dealing with the habit side of smoking also.

If you don't think your ready yet to reduce the patch, have a word with your doctor and see wether you can stay on the 15mg patch abit longer. I was on the 15mg patch for 8 weeks.

Keep us posted
