Where did THIS come from now?

Am quite bewildered...been veering between bad temper, tears, elation (7 weeks tomorrow) now...where in god's name has this pure, incandescant rage come from? I have actually had to walk away to stop me from smashing the crap out of things & people today for absolutely no reason. It's like being premenstrual again (which is ridiculous as that's well behind me these days) so what the hell's happening to me?:eek:

  • Its hard to know! Maybe just one of those things, maybe you need to take more time out for yourself or maybe you are going through that period where you need to find yourself again (not the smoker you were). I do hope that today is better though xx

  • well 7 weeks, does sounds like we should call this the teenager stage! i went through a lot of rage like symptoms now and then from 7 weeks till last month really, looking back i see it as a good thing, as a new non-smoker i needed to learn to handle my emotions again, and now at 6 months i feel like i've got them pretty well reigned in again to pre-quit levels :) keep on going with the quit, i think the rage is natural..

    Yes, this kind of makes sense...just as well my OH is a very calm person & can cope with me snarling & frothing at the mouth, poor guy! :D
