Just a quick update on how things are going for me. I'm about half way through week 13 now and things are still not that great. I really need to get this alcohol thing under control or I'll have a problem with that too. I went through a small bottle of whisky again last night, had 4 beers the night before that, wine and beer the day before that and so on. I've decided to stop drinking altogether now because its getting silly. I'm now certain its a smoking substitute for me because when I smoked drinking never really interested me, I could take it or leave it and I normally left it !
I'm still grieving for my cigarettes and the last week I've been feeling really sad and depressed. I wouldnt say it was like craving, just a sad feeling of loss. I just really miss it and have problems dealing with life in general these days.
Sorry for the moaning and complaining, it just helps to get it all off my chest and here is really the only place I feel I can do that.
