I'm feeling down

Ok so I'm on day 3, and I feel really low. I have no energy, and am not on the ball at all. My speech is slow and I've been stuttering on the phone.

I am used to depression, been suffering with it for a decade, and this is a trifle as feelings go. Still feel pants though.

I guess with the doses of nic I'm used to, it was acting as a mega stimulant.

Hope this improves, I know it's worth it.

  • Hi Raddleman!!! You are seriously not on your own in feeling like this.

    On day 3, I kept getting all my words muddled up... I would be in mid conversation then totally forget what I was talking about ( which is totally embarrassing ) then that afternoon I had a HUGE CRAVE... that nearly had me falling into the trap. I stood in the kitchen and cried my eyes out that day. Just as I was crying my friend ( who is giving up with me by using NRT ) came in and said " OMG what's wrong mate?? " I said " I'm having a bad one mate and I feel like I'm going round the twist ".... she just wrapped her arms around me and didn't judge me... she just let me cry it all out.

    After my cry, we actually found some humour in the whole situation and I felt so much better.

    The next day, I made a pact with myself that only a GOOD thing has happened to my body. If my body could cope with 15/16 years of being poisioned to death, I'm sure it can cope with this!!! I'm on day 8 now and PLEASE PLEASE believe me when I say it gets that little bit easier every day.

    Good luck .... it's all good :D
