Congratulations on 3 days smoke free!
Having vivid dreams or nightmares can be very common when wearing the patch. If it is disrupting your sleep too much you can certainly take it off before bed. It's usually recommended to take it off 1-2 hours before going to bed to help with this side effect.
As you mentioned above, the evening was a time where you would have smoked the most. So without the patch, you may want to have some alternate strategies to help you get through those cravings. Maybe something to help keep you busy and take you mind off any urges.
All the best,
