Today didn't start off very well. Woke up late and irritable after a bad night. Couldn't really sleep, and if I did doze, I couldn't STAY asleep. Had some really vivid dreams, so I know I did hit REM a time or two last night. But I watched the clock for a lot of the night as well. Might have put on the nicotine patch too late last night. I've also decided that the back of my shoulders is NOT the spot for the patch, as my arm hurt all day today.
Picked up 14mg patches today, as I probably won't be going out before next Weds to shop. And I only have a few days left of the 21mg patches. I'm excited to be lowering my nicotine dose. Maybe that will help the side effects too. Can only wait and see! Been very tired again the past few days, not sure if I'm coming down with something or if its a natural part of quitting. The habit portion is really getting easier at this point, save for a few moments here and there.
Weighed myself again tonight: Current weight 136.2lbs +.6 from 3 days ago. Current gain: 2.2lbs
