    It has been 8 days and I haven't had a cigarette but I found that the longer I go, the worse I am feeling. I feel nauseated and very fatigued. It is a great product, it definitely does the trick but boy does it suck to be so nauseated.

    Started using the patch and, after 3 days, my ears started pounding night and day. Sounds like the bass drum in a marching band and I can't even sleep. Stopped using the patch and, 2 months later, my ears are still pounding. The Dr. said that this side-effect is now permanent and there is nothing that can be done about it.

I frequently smell a dirt or soil smell, even when I am not outside. & I have no house plants. I took the patch off yesterday at 3pm,nearly 21 hrs ago and I still have not craved a smoke, which I guess is good, ... Show Full Comment

    I am having the best experience with this product. Of course one must have their head and heart in it together. I have tried to quit before but I wasn't definite about the reason for quitting. Today, I care for my elderly aunt 81 dying in hospice of COPD. I have this incredible opportunity of living the future in the present time. Looking at her is like looking at myself down the road.

    Comment:
    I have not smoked in over 3 years since starting with the patch AND a cheap disposable E-cigarette. The patch worked on the nicotine addiction well enough. However, in my case it was psychological benefit of being able to get several puffs from my E-cigarette during the day which kept me away from smoking. Why the combination of NRT and E-cigarette's aren't being mentioned as an additio ... Show Full Comment
