    Hi cec57,

    I also quit on January 6th, so day 10, yay! I am doing it cold turkey, but I also am very sluggish.  My legs feel very heavy, and I am tired all of the time.  I am drinking a ton of water, and just hoping that the tiredness wears off soon.  We are in this together, stay strong, we got this!!

    cec57,

    This is my third real attempt at quitting, the first time I did use the patch and found while I was sleeping it was like being in the movie theatre, my dreams were so vivid (even though I took the patch off an hour or two before going to bed).  I just never felt like I got any sleep.  The last time I went cold turkey, and lasted 97 days...but always felt like I was missing my best friend, and I was always telling myself that I could never smoke again, which felt horrible.  This time, I feel more prepared to quit, and I feel like I never want to smoke again...and I don't want to ever quit again.  I understand that mornings can be hard, particularly if you do take the patch off at night, so it takes a while for the nicotine to get back in your system.  I have no magic cure, and some days are really, really, really hard  lol.  I seem to yawn all of the time, and breath deep a lot.  Just drinking lots of water, but also snacking way too much, so that will need to change.  Just keep plugging along.
