Hi all, this is my first post even though I've started into week 3 of my quit.
Ive been on this site from the start, reading posts and getting advice and so far there have been no major problems. Im going cold turkey by the way.
However I now need some assistance. On saturday I awoke feeling pretty ropey...tired, anxious, depressed, confused, kind of spaced out. I spent the whole day in bed feeling sorry for myself.
Sunday came and I felt a bit more alive...although still pretty down and very anxious. Sunday night I went to bed at usual time around 11.30 and expected to awake when my alarm goes off at 7.30am. However I woke with a start at around 2am and was wide awake and couldn't get back to sleep.
I put this down to a one off...it happens to everyone every now and then. However during the day on Monday I was very tired and depressed and anxious.
Again last night I went to bed at usual time, drifted off to sleep as normal and again...BANG 2:30am I was wide awake...my head was literally buzzing like I had just drank about 10 coffees! I felt really anxious again all night and a little bit panicky! I crawled into work this morning and they kindly agreed to let me take a couple of days "emergency holiday" as they took pity on me.
But im worried now...im worried about the insomnia, im worried about the depression and anxiety (Ive suffered before in the past).
Basically I no longer feel in control of my quit anymore.
All of a sudden im anxious, confused, having depressive thoughts and not sleeping. Dont really have too much support around me either so its difficult.
So I thought Id give you lot a try?
Any advice would be appreciated!
