Hi there guys.
My quit isn't going to well. I'm on my second day, but since I cut down my 4-a-day-habit a few weeks prior, I've been getting VERY depressed. I don't know if it's an actual withdrawal symptom, or it's just my state of mind at the moment (maybe a combination of the two?)
What's interesting is that if I use my NRT, the depression lifts somewhat for some time. The more I use, the better it seems to be, but it doesn't lift completely. When I did smoke the few cigarrettes prior to my quit, it lifted even more, but still didn't go completely (I wasn't using NRT when I cut-down). I'm using oral mouth spray as my NRT, but haven't used it that much.
I can cope with the cravings, but the depression is really bad -- all I want to do is sleep, and all I can think of is bad thoughts. I've suffered from depression in the past, but no more so than the average person. It's particularly bad when I wake-up in the morning, and it's consistant throughout the whole day. I'm a bit concerned as I'm not sure if this is normal -- has anyone else experienced this? Forgive my naivity, but this is my first ever quit.
P.S. I've since read this: realcounsellingmelbourne.co...
