$32.85 is what I've saved (according to the meter) but it feels like it should have been more (maybe that's what I want it to be so I feel like I've done some major accomplishment or something) but anyway I am using the 21mg Nicotine patch, the intial headache/buzz gets to me, i know you're not supposed to put it on before sleeping because it causes nightmares, but I just have to so I can sleep through that buzz feeling, I haven't had nightmares perse, but they've definately been "enhanced"(more vivid/graphic) but not scary.
Thursday I had a patient that when I entered her room to do v/s and assessment the smell almost knocked me over!!!!! OMG. it was terrible, her husband must have a habit of smoking in a phone booth, did I ever smell like that???
I noticed Saturday night while working that I am less productive since I'm not smoking, if that makes sense. I just feel like I have more time so I procrastinate since I'm not chomping at the bit to go downstairs! lol... My charge nurse says I'm just imagining things, she's a sweetheart and has been really encouraging of my cessation.
Anywhoo.... Good luck to all of you !!
