A big congratulations on being smoke free for a whole week! That is terrific!
It's great that you feel the patch is helping. Thank goodness for NRTs. They are a real lifeline for so many people, and it's great to know that there are now products available that can help us beat this addiction.
In terms of your emotions, I can relate. At the end of my first month, I cried for 2 solid days. And before that, I alternately felt giddy, spacey, anxious, and a whole host of other things. But like you, I also noticed that I wasn't wheezing in bed at night. And now, 14 months later, the difference is like night and day. My breathing is a whole lot better. I no longer have jungle mouth when I wake up in the morning, and I have lost my smoker's cough. And I don't have to worry about reeking of smoke any more.
Keep the quit, Jenny12. You are going to love being a non-smoker!
