Hi louannes and welcome!
You've come to the right place and the support here is huge ... major part of my success!
I tried to go cold turkey but just couldn't deal and my doctor agreed that patch might be helpful. I'm 2 1/2 months smoke free and on the final stage of the patch. I needed to focus more on the emotional dependency to smoking and the patch took enough of the physical cravings away to do that. As I've been weaning off the patch, I do experience "odd" feelings, but totally manageable.
I smoked for 30 years and thought I could never quit. Smoking was a part of who I was. But I have to say, being on this side is beyond anything I could have imagined!
Take it a day at a time, and when that feels too tricky, just take it an hour at a time.
We are here with you!!
