I am so sorry to hear about your recent health ordeals. So many people have fear of failure like yourself. Instead of feeling down, using this failure to motivate you. I know it is easier said than done, but if you think about it, if you didn't care whether or not you failed, you would probably not put in a great effort to quit!
Congratulations on setting a quit date and for cutting down so far. As another option, you don't need to wait to use the patch and/or gum for your quit day; you can use them to cut down.
rainbrach, happy to hear the combination therapy of the patch and spray worked for you! The allergy to the patch was due to the adhesive, so if you are struggling, we may suggest trying a different brand since they all use different glues. Also, just like you mentioned about the spray (into the cheek), if you do use the gum, make sure you park it for the majority of the time it is in your mouth, rather than chewing it like regular gum. Often times people understandibly make this mistake, so they find the nrt gum ineffective. Congrats on your huge success! wow 30 days and 30 years. No wonder you are proud of yourself!!
All the best to both of you,
