The last 28 days have been smoke free for me. I used a 21 mg Equate patch for the first three weeks and still had fairly intense cravings, but they were tolerable enough that I didn't give in and smoke. (The second week was easier than the first) Then I ran out of patches during the 3rd week so I started on this gum, 4 mgs. I followed the directions and you're supposed to chew till you feel a "tingle". Well I've never felt any tingle. And the gum has given me little, if any relief. Frustrated, I found myself reaching for them way too often. I've really suffered through this weekend and feel pretty awful right now. My symptoms on the gum have been: restlessness, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, difficulty with concentration and memory, and leg tremors at night which interfere with my sleep. I put an Equate 21 mg patch on just now and I sure hope it kicks in soon. I'm glad for the reviewers who find the gum helpful. It just hasn't worked for me.
