My second day on the patch, and i still think about a cigarette, im not sure why i have a headache, and a slight gitter.are these normal?
You may still think about it,but the patch is more than doing it's job. You have to have the mind set to quit & get rid of all smokings things, like ashtrays etc... I did it 8 years ago (going on 9) gained some weight & tried it again earlier this year & got high blood pressure! Wasn't the quitting it was the med they had me on at the smae time! The patch is too strong if you are feeling jttery & upset tummy. I got the same ones to start with, & after 2 days just threw them away. Some will disageee with me, but try cutting it in half & try a half of a patch. I thik yo'll find you won't feel so sock & jittery. If you try this put a small piece of tape on the cut side against your skin to seal it. & seal the other half back in the package with tape so it stays fresh.I asked my pharmatist about doing this & he said it should be ok to do. Good luck with your endeavor to quit! It took me almost 18 years after promising my mother on her death bed I would do it, & has made a tremendous difference in not only my pocket book, but how I feel... Mary
