Hi, I'm nearly at the end of day 7 and I hope that the worst is over with now. it hasn't been so much the craving a cigarette, although I have a bit, I have just felt so low in mood and really lethargic. I have recently started a placement as a student social worker, and I have been taking some chinese herbal medicine for problems with adult acne so my low mood could be related to that too. Also I have had a rather tough supervision, and have been falling out with my mum so that hasn't helped.
Sorry for moaning on! Hopefully as I'm getting into week 2 I will start to feel a little better...
I'm using nicotine gum, chewing gum, drumstick lollies and eating a little bit more than usual. I've also bought myself some perfume with roughly 1 weeks worth of cig money (Â£35) and keep spraying myslef, as well as putting on hand cream. Is the mood due to withdrawal as I have only been smoking 'full time' for a couple of months again this time?
