Day 16!

So....day 16 and all isn't well. i had my first proper craving for a cigarette last night and boy was I in a s**t mood!

Emotional symptoms experienced so far:

1. Anger - I have to stop driving sometimes because I am close to murdering other drivers.

2. Frustration - Sometimes I feel my head will implode.

3. Fear - Afraid of never smoking agin...WHAT WILL I DO!!!!!!

4. Loneliness - I have lost a friend that was with me through thick and thin.

5. Resentment - I hate all the smokers I see who are having a fag outside my office - how come they get to have one and I don't???

6. Depression - Feeling very lost and down....wondering whether I will ever be able to have a life without any of these awful syptoms.

Physical Syptoms so far:

1. Cannot sit still.

2. Cannot concentrate.

3. Crying

4. Eating more chocolate - although exercising alot more.

Anyway, I have just watched the 1 hour Allen Carr DVD and have learned more about the nicotine trap.....so interesting and all that was explained was very true.

I'm so glad I am a non smoker and I am so glad I have just started day 16.

    Hi, i have and am still going through everything you said, except for the crying bit, what i am still trying to do is to accept the fact that till I am here in this life, i am not going to stick anything in my mouth that has no business there.. take it easy, my advice to you, start doing something that you can do all the time,, so it could be something as mundane as joining some chatting room or forum like this, and when ever you get the crave or any emotion, get on this forum and vent it out.. be strong..remember you are not alone..

  • Hi Clare :)

    I'm so sorry you feel so down at the moment I promise it does pass though but that doesn't really help you just now does it

    Click the bottom link in my siganture theres a bit os everything there and I found it a huge help in the early days of my wuit as it explains why you're feeling as you do right then

    I hope it helps you as much as it did me hun

    Love
