So I got up this morning, had breakfast with my neighbour, Yoshe, took off my nicotine patch and showered, and then did some work on the computer.

As I did that, I gradually realized I was starting to get agitated, anxious, sucking on the straw wasn't helping, I'm starting to get antsy, free-floating angry feelings, let me make some tea, take my meds, oh boy what's going on, I'm jittery and itchy all over, why can't I distract myself...?

Oh. DUH!

I forgot to put a fresh nicotine patch!

No wonder I felt like I was crawling out of my skin! That was nicotine withdrawals I was experiencing!

I slapped on a fresh patch, threw on some shorts, and went out for a 15-minute walk around the neighbourhood (sucking on my straw all the way) while I waited for the nicotine patch to take effect.

Ahhhh... I feel much better now.
