Please don't be so hard on yourself. All of us have slipped. It just seems to be part of the quitting process. The important thing is that you have not given up, and you are learning from your momentary lapse. Now you are more sure than ever that you have to follow the rules when it comes to the patch. You have a plan, and if you stick to it, you will be successful.
When you are tempted, remember N.O.P.E. (Not One Puff Ever). If you never take another puff, you will be a non-smoke forever.
Good luck on this next part of your journey. You are brave enough and strong enough to do this, phoenix. Believe in yourself.
