Patches itch. They help with the chemical, but not the social situation caused cravings (i.e. while drinking, after a meal, what have you) & oral fixation. When I have given the patch a shot before I've carried the mouthpiece from a cigarallo and chewed on that when I got urges. I'm sure gum or candy would work just as well. In the end, _for me_, I've always failed at quitting because of the social or stress based urges...
I've heard good things about Chantix (new hotness) and Wellbutrin (slightly older), but both of those are actually ****ing with you brain chemistry and that is a turnoff for lots of folks.
That was exactly my experience. The dreams you have with the patch on are just totally ****ed up.Spidey said:Nick, I did patches. Twice. They sucked. I had wicked, ****ed-ip nightmares, and so wouldn't wear 'em at night. And at the beginning, they overloaded me on nicotine and I felt sick (and I was smokin' a lot!). But then at the end of the day, I still had cravings. Also, every time I went down a level in patch strength, I had cravings all over again. And it didn't do **** for the socialized need to smoke. I felt like it just extended the whole process.

not the major ones they're referring to. read up on carter albrecht.lilysmama said:P.S. And, just my 2 cents, but aren't most of those side effects from the Chantix things you're probably going to experience when you're detoxing from nicotene anyway?
