Day 5 and feel awful

Well I've made it to day 5 and today I feel terrible. I'm feeling extremely tired, got a weird headache (not quite a headache but this strange niggly feeling at top of head), I ache everywhere, feeling quite irritable, very weak and lethargic, and generally just feel cack!

I don't remember any of this happening with my last quit. I suppose I could have caught something and I'm blaming it on not smoking, but I really don't like this! Up until about an hour ago, when i managed to pull myself together enough to do something, I really felt like giving in. The only thing that stopped me was that we have this group quit going on at work and I don't want to be the first one to give in! I don't feel like giving in now by the way. I just don't want to feel ill, especially as I have to do an hour's drive to work at 12.

Has anyone else felt any of the above symptoms? I'm using NRT by the way so they're not CT symptoms. Somebody please fix me!!!! :(

  • Thanks for the replies. I found CW's very useful, and passed it on to people at work too, so thanks CW.

    I still feel crappy but that could well be cos I'm sitting here at work doing the most boring thing it's possible for a programmer to do!
