That is so absolutely awesome!!! I made it through too!! Everything you did was so great! Yes! It is a whole new life that we need to get used to. I had a difficult time with that in the beginning as well. You will hear others on here talking about the same thing (treepeo above). They all helped me so much!! I am so proud of you! You got this, One day at a time. I can relate to the lunch thing too. Mindfulness is great. Just living in the moment and enjoying nature ... beautiful! <3 Personally, I nap a fair bit. My health not really that good right now, but I know I won't smoke when I'm in the bedroom or when I am asleep. That's just a given! lol It has helped me get through some difficult days.
A heads up to you if you have any unusual dreams while on the patch. That is normal. I woke up this morning at 5:30am from a vivid dream. Stayed up a couple of hours (it was a really weird one) but then back to sleep after a small snack and slept right through. Some people suggest taking the patch off at night when you sleep. That is a decision you have to make for yourself. I personally don't take mine off at night. I have found the wild dreams leave after a few days on the patch. I also don't want to take the risk cuz the mornings are the most difficult for me not smoking. If I wake up without the patch on I figure for me, it would be too risky. That's just me. That decision is up to you. Trust yourself! ... and check out what others have shared on this. We can learn from others' mistakes as well as our own. That's what I love about this site. No one is perfect and we all accept that. Have you found that on here yet???
You keep up the fabulous work! ODAAT! So glad you are hear! <3
