Hi, So, let's say for this year I decided to give up smoking so I am using NRT.(nicotene replacement theropy). I used Patches Gum. So, after about 19 days, this is what my arm dewelled into.. Bashed, from smoking patches.. My mouth is worse. Lack of nicotene can really be a killer.. but I am going to keep it up... - I smoked averagely. 64 ciggerettes a day for 7 years. Taking a hard effect on me I think?
