My FI is also trying - he woke up one AM and went out to buy the patch. He has had a FEW slip ups in stressful situations, but on week 2.. He keeps some in his car, I think it is a security blanket for him. But what he has been doing is buying bags of Dum Dum lollipops and eating those.
Its tough because he drives a lot for work. So he looks for something to do. He also got straws and cut them sort, cut a cigarette filer off the bottom and placed it in the straw so he can kill time with the "action" of smoking but not actually doing it. He says it helps.
The patch does give him some really messed up dreams and he has been moving a LOT in his sleep.

I also live in NY so I know how much it costs, which is another reason I thought it would be good to quit. But then again, I've been eating more for that oral fixation, and I don't think that's a good thing for getting ready to slip into a tight fitting dress. Argh! I've even thought about trying hypnotherapy. Anyone have any success with this or have recs for the NYC area? Sorry for rambling, but I totally understand where you are coming from. It's hard, but we'll feel so much better when the hard part is over!
