Am new to this forum and have found it interesting to read other people's experiences in giving up smoking. This is my third time of trying. I gave up for a year when pregnant (1999), gave up for four months last year using sheer willpower (started again after going on holiday with my chain smoking sister - there is only so much temptation a girl can take!) and am now on my third week of this attempt. I am using patches and have gone from 10 a day to 5 a week - this week I have had two which have made me feel really sick so not sure why I do it to myself really!
Anyway what I have noticed each time i give up is that everything seems to make me feel unsatisfied, if I eat I feel like I need more, if I drink I feel like I am missing something and end up drinking really fast so end up drunk (:rolleyes: ) and apparently I have turned into a moody lunatic (boyfriend's words!!). Any advice?
