    Default 7mg - Nicoderm step down - 2 weeks till nicofreedom!

    Hi, Haven't posted in a while. Today was my first day of 7mg'ers
    meaning 2 months no smokes. The move from 14 to 7 has been painless
    thus far. I did have some stronger than usual urges to smoke, and even
    had a dream that I smoked one but that was when I was on the 14mger's
    a couple days ago. I'm not going to smoke ever again because it killed
    my sister at 46. I'm not going to smoke because I don't want to
    contribute to the smoke companies. Still getting those rashes but 13
    days left, I'll stick it out. I mix a little benzadyl w/ the
    hydrocortisone cream and it goes away in a day or so. Hope all is
    going good for my fellow quitters out there.
    Regards, Steve

    Today it's 8 weeks and 4 days of no smokes. I figure I screwed the
    tobacco company out of 400 bucks or close to it. So I donated 400
    bucks to a good charity, and I feel really good about that. In 10 days
    I'll be free of the patch and the nicotine that comes with it. The
    patches cost me 40 bucks for a 2 weeks supply, so next thursday, I'll
    donate another 200.00 bucks.

    I've been cutting down on the number of hours I wear the patch since
    the nicotine is still transdermal hours after removal.
    I'm down to around 8 hours a day. I put it on around 11 a.m, and take
    it off at 7-8:00. No problems yet(Except for the little rashes). I
    have 10 patches left. When your smoking its really easy to do nothing
    since you have cigarattes to keep you occupied. Now, I find I have
    more time on my hands and so I'm a lot more productive when it comes
    to getting things done. I was never one of those woulda, coulda,
    shoulda people, but if I had to do it all over again I'd never smoke
    that first cigarette...that was really stupid. I can't beleive I
    actually thought I enjoyed smoking this ****. You don't realize how
    ****ty these things are till you stop.

    It's great that you donated your savings to a charity, Steve. I am
    certain it can be used for good. From what you write about your patch
    usage, you are well along the way to total nicofreedom which is
    great! Having the extra time one wastes smoking is always a challenge
    to fill with something productive. Sounds like you are doing that and
    enjoying it along the way. Each day we are smober is a victory for
    all of us, so keep on keeping on!

    I can share that wish with you, steve...
    But we are here now - so this is it.

    Remember that corny old adage,
    Today is the first day of the rest of your life?
