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.
