So I'm now 66 days smoke free. The cravings still come & go but I've been off the patches for 10 days & haven't noticed an increase in the cravings. I did 4 weeks of the step 1 patches & 4 weeks of the step 2 patches. I've got a weeks supply of the step 3 patches but will only use them if the cravings get really bad. I certainly don't consider myself an ex smoker yet, I think a part of mind thinks it's just a break I'm having (I did quit for 9 months abt 20 years ago). I've had dreams when I'm smoking again & in the dream I'm really angry at myself for caving in. When I wake & realise I'm still smoke free I feel so good, & that drives me not to give in to the urge. So to anyone who wants to quit do it, it will make you feel so much better about yourself.
