I'm new to all this but looking at this site over the last few days has made me feel better, given me some comfort.
Day one of no smoking, ( using patches) felt great, like a sense of relief, day 2 a little less happy, day 3 a little less than the day before, day 4 pretty bad, day 5, was pure evil this morning, could take it no more, I was nasty!!!!! I started on the inhailator and calms, I cried and appologised once the calms had kicked in. Don't understand why the feeling is getting worse every day, I'm dredding tomorrow, so is my boyfriend who takes the brunt of it all, (sorry Hun).
I'm not even missing the ritual of smoking, if I see someone smoking it's nothing to me, I don't envy them or want one at all, so why am I having such a hard time, boyfriend also quitting and he is nowhere near having a hard time like me. When will i start feeling better?
Who know's why one has an easier time than the other. Actually there possibly is an answer to that...there's always answers I s'pect you don't really need some pat response....but some of us go through those real difficult times. Others have easier times, as I mentioned.
I strongly believe that to make this journey easier for your self you should read up on what's happening in this process of moving from being a smoker to not....whether through patches or whatever method. In my sig there are a few links to sites that can help you understand those processes. (the top one I found the most helpful :))
Of course there is this site that helps with an avenue to vent your feelings...all that pent up fury of stopping smoking. Somebody will listen...because we've all been through it.
By the way...congrats on getting where you have got to
PS: I haven't done much support for an age. Like you are stopping smoking I'm practising supporting again...both of us will get better at this
