Tired, Tired, Tired!

I know all part of the quit process but I had a terrible evening last night night really bad.

It was like I had a evil twin just snap, snap, snapping at everyone. I felt awful because I'm not usually like that. Then a friend said to me "for god sake just have a fag will you - you are so moody." Couldn't believe it - thanks for your support bud!

Then I couldn't get to sleep kept tossing and turning worrying about how I was snapping at people and if I had upset them.

Now this morning I just feel absolutely "kerry packered" (knackered).

I kept thinking of the guys on here though to get me through it all, particularly Sossy & Dee as I am not going to let them down again and I know things are a lot tougher for them than me! I didn't want Lornaj around here with the clipboard and I certainly didn't want Pol & Christine driving up here to tell me off! :D

Could somebody though who has quit using patches let me know if they experienced this? I thought that because I was still getting nicotine it wouldn't be quite as bad?

Shall I just hibernate for 12 months and not speak to anyone that way I won't snap at people!! :rolleyes:

Oh well all part of the quit I suppose :confused: I'm OK now just really tired.

  • Hey Tinks

    Keep strong! You're still doing brilliantly!! I've had the horrible even twin thing too (although my OH would have you believe I'm always like that hee hee), but I just keep putting it to the back of my mind and thinking 'God, I'm stronger than this'. As you can imagine, it's all a bit tense in our house with 2 quitters but we're making a conscious effort not to take it out on each other. And if we do, we understand it's purely because of our cravings.

    Your real friends will let you call them every name under the sun and still be there for you. That's what friends are for. And if you feel really cross, come on here and shout at me. I don't mind!!

  • Dito Tinks, I was like that too yesterday, had NO patience and kept snapping unnecessarily at everyone around me, not good.

    By 4pm today I will be moving onto day 5 and I've got to say I dont feel like that and I'm going to ensure that I dont loose it today...hehehe....

    Good luck for today and keep up the great work.x:D

  • hi tink

    sorry to hear about your rough night:(

    it affects me a little but not much as i go to bed late so when its affecting me, im still up at like 2am surfing the net, i dont recommend you do it though, but from that what im suggesting is, try taking some sleeping tablets or going to bed like 30 mins - 1 hour earlier than usaul, i dont know if it'll work

    It's not like we want to add any more pressure ;-) ..... and really, once we do arrive, mob-like on your doorstep, we're lovely, even if we eat and drink you out of house and home :p

    I should know but can't remember, what patch strength your on. If your on the 24 hr ones they may well be disturbing your sleep making you hmmm, shall we say extra tetchy during the day.

    The nicotine in them helped me in that they reduced the cravings but moodiness, the missing of smoking, the anger, the happiness, the bouncing from the walls, the smiles at not caving in..... was all there and all part of the quit. You need to keep busy both physically and mentally, positively distract yourself...... it's only days (HA! only days!!!!) that this will last for and each of those days things ease up, so really then, it's only hours but they are spaced out so it seems like for ever:rolleyes:

    Patches helped me a lot but I didn't like them and didn't use them for the recommended time but that was my choice.

    Your almost at a week now - hang in there, remember your strong and how it gets easier.

    Remember too, we all have cars and can drive :p

  • Hi Tinks :D

    Keep going you're doing just fine

    Feeling moody is normal and as for your friend I suggest to confiscate her fags for a few hours and see how she feels then

    If a non smoking friend then she plainly doesn't understand so slap her

    Love

  • I am just de-frosting the car and getting a bottle of Baileys for Pol!!

    On week 2 of my quit my lovely lovely husband coughed and I turned into 'screaming hormonal woman from hell' and totally lost the plot. This is now a great story to tell at parties but I am ashamed for the things I said to my DH. However he understood and still does, giving up smoking is not for the weak, so you will be just fine my love.

  • Marg - can I slap her then I tell her that you gave me permission to? Ha! Ha!

    :D

    Better still next time I tell her I send the heavies around? By that I mean you lot and no I don't mean it literally - just a saying! :)

    Emily - how is it for you today chickadee?

    Hey hun, today is OK except for the stinking cold that I've developed!! I'm craving a bit today but nothing monumental. I'm just annoyed that I'm ill as I never get sick!! My poor OH has just called me to say that he's cleaning out the kitchen cupboards (not a regular occurrence but we're moving in 3 weeks), and he's just found 20 fags!! I've told him to stamp on them, put them under the cold tap then throw them. But it's made me think of them again!! How are you now? Keep strong, my lovely!!:)
