    No you can't overdose on patches as they are sustained release, giving up smoking is the same as giving up anything addictive, it causes anxiety as you "crave" for a cig and the thoughts that go with it.

    5/6 days of not smoking is really good and having little or no energy is the anxiety side and the lack of stimulants the cigs gave you so probably both.

    stick with it Paul and as an ex smoker myself I've never looked back and after the first week-10 days I'd started to improve and found each day easier.

    Hiya Paul, your doing great, well done, I have 2 say though I stopped smoking about a year ago and had no problems until I stopped the e cigs and went onto the spray, maybe it was just coincidence but when I started on it thats when my anxiety got a whole lot worse, like you in the past I had used patches with no problems really, hang on in there your doing fantastic but maybe try stopping the spray and see how it goes, take care smile xx
