Day 13 & still no sleep

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to say that I am on day 13 & still feeling good about my quit.

Tonight I am feeling a rather down but I blame lack of sleep for that. I feel so exhausted now. I have been lucky in this quit that I have hardly had any craves, don't think about smoking at all & can never envisage ever smoking again. Totally unlike the many, many quits before! I also have never suffered from sleep deprivation like this before. Given a choice I would rather be going through what I am this time to the craves etc so guess I will & can just push through it. Going to try & get something to help with sleep tomorrow before I keel over lol.

I have an interview for a job tomorrow that I really, really want so hope I can wake enough brain cells to perform well in it. :D

  • well done on getting to day 13 :D your sleep will get back to normal soon once your body has adjusted

  • Ooh, best of luck with the interview!

    I always have a book on tape at bedtime. Concentrating on the story takes my mind off everything else, and I usually don't hear more than ten minutes, max. Doesn't work for everyone though.

    Glad to hear you're doing well in other respects though!

  • Best of the luck with your job interview, Gaynor.

    I used a relaxation tape at night to help me with my sleeping but I am not sure whether it did anything. The last three night my sleeping has sorted itself out. Maybe something like nytol would help.

  • Hi Gaynor, worried tht this is an eggsucking post, but just thought I would mention cutting out caffeine again.

    Fingers crossed for the job

  • Hi Gaynor.

    Good luck for tomorrow, and I hope you get a good nights sleep. Have you tried nytol?

    Im feeling the same way Gaynor, although my sleep has improved somewhat. Now I seem to just wake up every 3 hours or so and then go back to sleep ... which is a pain in the butt but better than it was! :) Well done you! Nice to see you still going strong! And Good Luck with the Job interview!

    If you can lay your hands on some Kalms, try and take a couple, if you cant slep they ill atleast relax you enough to get some rest :) x

  • Hi PK, glad ur sleep has been better. Have never suffered this badly I have to say. Mind you, have not felt so good either so maybe I should count myself lucky. I have got some night nurse as I usually find that helps, if not will try Kalms or nytol. Hope you have had a great non smoking day :) xxx

  • Hi everyone,

    Sandy, whats an egg sucking post? Am I being thick lol?

    I think she meant as in 'am I teaching my grandmother to suck eggs'

    Took me a minute to work it out! LOL:D

  • ;o;, think i worked it out later in the day. Not really awake till at least 2 in the afternoon at the moment then on windown from 2.30 :rolleyes:

  • Hiya Joan, good to hear you are cutting down on ur patches, just go at the rate is right for you as I am sure you will. Have sucked my lozenges for all they are worth today I have to say but better that than a smoke :eek:

  • My last smoke was on the evening of 1-1-11. Last night, I managed to sleep for almost seven hours. Up until last night, I have been averaging 4-5 hours sleep a night....I hope it gets better.

  • yay kev, good for you. I am not even sure i am sleeping or not now stupid as it sounds. I know I am not awake, awake like I was for the first week but just so, so tired when I get woken by the alrms (yes plural lol). Bought new pilllows yesterday which was much nicer. Think I kept waling up to go, ummmmmm this is nice :eek: No bloody hope really lol xxx
