I'm 5 weeks in, and the first three weeks were brutal, but I also had some relative easy times interspersed which weren't that bad at all. It's really unpredictable, and I could only look at the half day to make it through. I'm feeling much better now, but I still wear the Patch during the day. I see someone at a local hospital who told me the fatigue lasts about 3 months, but mine was at its worst from day 5 to day 15 ish. I feel energetic again, but sometimes get tired earlier at night than is typical for me. Don't look ahead at more than one day at a time. I almost loved the nights because that meant the day was over and completed, lol! Congratulations, you'll start to notice healthy changes, but it took about a month before I did, and it's nothing amazing yet, I had smoked for 42 years. My sinus' are never stuffy anymore.
