So just decided to try and give up nicotine yesterday. Using the patch for a month. 21 mg for first 2 weeks, then illIstep down to 14mg second 2 weeks. Then off completely after that. I have quit a lot of different substances over the years. Nicotine has always been there throughout all the others though. Side note I left the patch on last night and had some crazy lucid dreams! I forgot about the dreams. I tried quiting in rehab years ago, I ended up smoking still but leaving the patches on at night for the dreams. Hopefully I have better lucj this time.
