I am starting myweek 3 on the patch to try to stop smoking. I haven't had a puff so far but the last couple of days my cravings are worse. I smoked about 30 cigs per day and i am wearing the 21 mg. patch. Has anyone been through this or have any tips? I have smoked for 27 yrs. and I am scared to death that i will fail. This is the first time i have ever tried to quit. any advise would be apreciated.

I quit smoking about two years ago, and the best adivce I can give, is do it cold turkey. The patches, I think, are what's keeping the cravings going, by allowing you to have measured amounts of niccotine. When you feel the urge to smoke, don't shove food in your face. In fact, don't think about anything. Clear your mind, remind yourself that you *don't* need it. Find a hobby to get your mind off it.
