Stopped 16 days ago and decided to go cold turkey this time as had done every type of NRT without any real success. I've been really surprised how far I have come as I smoked for twenty years without any real beaks. The main reason for me to stop was like many here my kids. I'd become horribly aware of my mortality and quite paranoid about my health, so much so that I had a full on panic attack, which I've never had before. Had some medical check ups and seemed normal though am awaiting a date for an ultrasound for my heart.
Main physical problems I have had were insomnia, stomach problems and feeling lightheaded alot of the time. Do others get this as well ?
I've found the real struggle is with the psychological side of things. There are days when I feel empty and unable to gather the enthusiasm to do anything. I see alot of other posters talk about depression and anxiety so think I'm just getting some myself !
Have to say that this website has kept me going a few times when I was ready to break and I'd like to thank everyone as I wouldn't have got this far without the advice available here.
Hope everyone is doing ok.
