Lack of sleep

Hi guys,

I am at day 45 when writing this post and I wanted to share I had it rough the last couple of days. Today I am feeling much better and the smoking desire is back to its previous level.

I discovered that all was caused by my lack of sleep. I've been sleeping around 5 hours the previous 4 days and had some strong cravings during the day. However, when I slept for more than 8 hours this night I felt good through the day.

The Moral:

Getting a long and healthy good night's sleep is helping a lot for your quit :)

  • Absolutely. Have you heard of HALT? Hungry Angry Lonely Tired - we often mistake these needs and translate them into needing a cigarette.

    It's a useful thing to remember.

  • Indeed being tired can be a cause for and increase smoking desire, just try to get more sleep the next couple of days and you will be fine :)
