It is encouraging to hear that you are finding the patch helpful. For so many years, there was no help at all available to smokers. We were just expected to somehow buck up and quit, with no way of knowing how to quit, with no support, and certainly without any NRTs. Thank goodness that times have changed. Smokers now have a real opportunity to quit, and to quit for good, with the help of support, guidelines on how to quit, and/or the use of NRTs.
You were so smart to use the patch, because now you are moving towards your ultimate goal, which is to be a non-smoker for life. I am so happy for you, turningpoint. You are doing great, and I love your positive attitude! Keep the faith, because you can do this! You are stronger, and far more important, than your addiction. Kick those butts to the curb. You don't need them.
