Hi there, I have read lots of different forums, just wanted some advice or help please, or if anyone has experienced similar problems.
I gave up smoking on No Smoking day, I lost my beloved dad last June to lung cancer, and I have 3 beautiful children and a lovely husband, my reasons for stopping. (and money)
After smoking 30ish a day since I was 14, Im now 32, 60 days ago, using the patches, the 1st month was actually better than I thought, but the last few weeks I have turned into someone to be honest I really dont like. I started so postively, gardening etc,
My husband bless him loves starting DIY but unfortunately gets bored and moves on to the next project, so I have a garden which looks like a building site, half a shower room, half a kitchen and half a bathroom, with boxes everywhere, and I think its starting to grate slightly.
I would normally laugh it off but I think the not smoking has completely blown this out of proportion, I feel like Im constantly cleaning and going round in circles. Ive also put on weight which Im not happy about at all.
It can take anything to make me snap, and I used to be so laid back, I feel very bitter and resentful, I just want to curl up in bed and not talk to anyone Normally I would do housework but now It seems pointless, has anyone else felt basically angry, bitter, stressed, oh and the dreams and disturbed sleep I could do without, I feel so tired, and I really dont like myself which again makes me angry :mad:
Im starting to feel like giving up giving up and maybe start again once everything is done and maybe be more prepared or is this the way I will stay if I continue not smoking.
Sorry I sound like a complete mad woman, I just wanted to see if anyone has been similarly pyscotic, and how on earth did you cope or not cope?????
Any clue would be so very much appreciated, thanks Sarah
P.S. Everyone thinks I'll cave in eventually anyway
