I just started on my 2nd box of Step 2, so 2 weeks into using this product. I wasn't a heavy smoker (10 or less per day, so I started with Step 2).These have helped with cravings tremendously. I still get cravings at times wearing this, but probably nothing compared to quitting cold turkey I would assume. I put one on within an hour after getting up in the mornings and remove it before I go to bed. I tried to wear it while sleeping and had crazy dreams. So, I have found it best for me to remove before going to bed. I have been wearing the patch on my arm every day, changing the area of placement to make sure it is not in the same spot from one day to the next. I also clean the area thoroughly with soap and water on a washcloth and this removes all the adhesive off. I have worn this patch working outside in the garden while it has been warm and sweating did not make the adhesive wear off, the patch remained in place without issue. I haven't tried wearing it in the shower, so not sure how that works out. I have removed it before showering in the evenings and go without the patch for the remainder of the night or I shower in the mornings before applying the patch. This has been such a huge success so far in my endeavor to quit smoking. 4 more weeks on Step 2, then I will be moving to Step 3 and then finally will no longer be nicotine dependent. I can already feel the change in my breathing and the way I feel overall. I am so excited to be an ex-smoker!
