I have been addicted to the NRT longer then I actually smoked for. For me, I needed to set a date, have a plan to deal with withdrawals and just go for it cold turkey while my willpower is fresh and strong. I tried several times slowly reducing the patch strength overtime, but found the whole withdrawal process was exhausting and I just went back to my old nicotine gum habit as it made me feel good.
Sadly, I worked up to chewing close to 40-50 pieces of the 2mg gum everyday :(
It’s only been 5 days now being nicotine free, the withdrawals have been pretty harsh, but I’m determined to succeed and quit for good.
