I am glad to find this forum as it is extremely helpful and very useful for those who are in need of stopping smoking. Just like everyone else I am a smoker or shall I say I was a smoker up until Thursday 19/01/2012. This is my third day and I am still managing to keep away from the tobacco.
However, I am a survivor and I have been on medication (Citalopram) for few years now and my life story worthy of a book so some people say. Anyway i will get straight to the point which is relevant to this forum. I have been smoking since 1998 and never tried to stop for all them years. I started with 10 a day and in 2004 they became 20, in 2007 they became 30 and in 2009 I was smoking 60 a day where often lighting one by another. My doctor had advised that he doe snot think I will pas the age of 50 of i carry on in this way specially when I am suffering from two other illnesses. Last Thursday I decided to quit. So far I am having very vivid dreams at night, my body is getting hot and cold, Illusions sometime and absent minded is frequent. I am using the patches and also the gums. Please advise me what else to expect so I can differ from the withdrawal symptoms and anxiety or my other illness symptoms. Any ideas and suggestions are welcome
