I've had a couple false starts this week but this is my proper first day with no cigarettes. I am finding this SO hard. I suffer with anxiety and depression anyway (am on antidepressants) and cutting out cigarettes is making me feel very vulnerable right now. I've been in tears all night. I don't want to live this way, bit I don't want to die of lung cancer either.
I have an electronic cigarette with no nicotine which I am using when it gets rough. I have been prescribed the gum and patches by my nurse, but I'm too afraid to take them. Will they really make that big a difference?
I'm reading all these things about how the anxiety and feeling low can go on for WEEKS. I don't know if I can take this, I am honestly scared of my anxiety spiralling out of control again.
I AM SO SCARED, PLEASE HELP.
