    Hi all,
    I've just started on patches. I wore one overnight last night even though my husband told me it was a bad idea because it gives you nightmares. Low and behold, I had such vivid and weird weird dreams. Is this true?

    Hi Kybin,
    YES Absolutely!!! I am not using the patch any longer, but always took it off at night.  Makes mornings a bit tough but at least you get a good nights sleep.  Good Luck on your quit

    Hi Kybin,

    Congratulations on starting the patch! Some people experience vivid dreams when wearing the patch overnight. For some people, the dreams can be disturbing so they decide to take it off before sleep.

    If you choose to go this route, it may be a good idea to have a new one handy on your nightstand for right when you wake up in the morning if you would smoke right after waking up usually.

    If your dreams are not bothering you, you can wear it as directed for the full 24hrs.

    Susanyw - thanks for your feedback too!! Has anyone else had an experience like this with the patch?

    I smoke 20 cigarillo cigars a day roughly, or I did.. I've started using the patch, the drug store brand, for 24 hours a day, 2 days ago 26sep! when I crave a smoke , I breath in and out, in and out. It passes! So far I am doing fantastic, I am sleeping more at night, and still smiling at work 👍. I've downloaded an app on my phone that will keep track of all details for me. I am ready for a cleaner living change 😎

    hey Tinav!

    You are doing it! I hope that today is going just as smoothly. Sometimes we can hit some bumpy times but the deep breathing skills you have will help you through it as well as the support from the patch.

    navn190, not sure if this answers your question, but the patch gives you that bit of nicotine through the night to help for when you wake up in the morning. Just so you have some support before the fresh patch kicks in....Some can't tolerate it through the night and take it off before bed but others like tinav find it helpful.

    Congratulations everyone!
    Lillian
