I've been lurking round here for a while now but thought i'd use this forum to articulate my experience and see if it makes things any easier.
I'm on day 4 and I have to say the depression has set in big time. It's hard to describe but it just feels like everything in the world is a bit darker and less colourful.
Just moping around looking for things to look forward to at the moment. Have promised myself a cup of tea in an hour.
Trying to deal with today and today only. The instant I think beyond that it all just feels a bit overwhelming and I start to doubt my resolve. Also trying to keep the addiction part of my brain (AKA the devil on my shoulder) from trying to convince me that one cigarette won't hurt (for anyone else suffering this I heartily recommend visualising this addiction as a person you don't like and then imagining yourself beating them senseless whenever they start nagging you to have a fag).
I'm not sure what's worse, this or the irritability of days 1, 2 and 3 (not that that's gone away, just got more manageable).
Well tomorrow's another day, and hopefully a better one than today... chin up and all that.
