Thanks for the info. I know it's probably not a good idea to cut the patch in half, but I do it anyway. I could be getting lots of nicotine at once though, instead of over 24 hours. I'm still not ready to stop the patch. I work for doctors and they pretty much say that anything you can do to NOT SMOKE is okay. I even read a medical article that said you can be on the patch, chew the gum, etc. etc. I've smoked in the past with the patch on and never had a problem, but it's probably not a wise thing to do.

I'll be 9 months quit on Saturday!

Take care.
Yes fibrana, you can cut them in half. Also don't worry about still using these aids. I stopped smoking with the patch and hypnosis. I was off the patch for 3 months when I got severe anxiety. (trying to stop smoking and going through menopause at the same time) I went back to smoking for 2 months. I then stopped and used the patch for 4 1/2 months. About 4 months after i stopped the patch I got urges like I had never quit. I went back on the patch instead of the cigarettes. I bought the 14mg and cut them in half. I used them for 3 months and have now been nicotine free for 5 months. The longest I have been without nicotine. So I have been officially off the smokes for 18 months (next week) but only nicotine free for 5 months. It will happen for you. Your doctors are right. The important thing is to not let the poisons into your system. Godbless
