    Ive been on the patch for 5 days with small cravings. I do have pains here and there from the patch but I can deal compared to the other issues smoking has caused my friends and family.

    My doctor has me on the patch as well as Wellbutrin. I find that as long as I'm not around other smokers, I don't really even get cravings. Even when I'm around them, its not so much the cravings as the behavioral issues that I'm having to work on. Overall, I find this to be very effective and recommend it to anyone trying to quit.

    First day today! No cravings at all, but heavy headaches and weak muscles. I'll continue, I can better deal with the side effects instead of cancer and all other health issues smoking does to me! Sorry for my English ;-)

    Day 5 as a non-smoker and only mild, quick cravings. Have done a lot of behavior modification as well. Noticed another poster commented about an odor. I am experiencing this, but only when I sweat. Dirt is a good description. I have horses so I am doing barn work every day, and at first I thought it was just from the barn work. It's not. I think it's the nicotine (maybe), toxins (?) ... Show Full Comment

    It works better on my buttocks, not the arm. I no longer get deep cravings, but some quick light ones which go away fast. Smoked all my life ....
