Made it to the end of day 2

The past couple of weeks, I've been up and down, wanting to quit and feeling guilty for giving in, but for TWO WHOLE DAYS NOW I haven't had a cigarette and I am going to do this!

I am very very tearful. Feel like I've lost a friend in some strange way. I keep telling myself "Remember the sadness and GUILT you would feel standing outside smoking while your children looked out the window at you, smiling and waving?" That always broke my heart. I don't have to go through that again.

When will the tears subside? I suffer with anxiety and am currently on antidepressants. I am hoping this will go away and I will not have to alter my antideperssant dose.

Hi Mum29-

You're doing so well :D good on ya- dont know about the anxious and emotional side...I've had many many cravings and ups and down ( more snappy and grumpy) but not tearful-though someone else will have!! If you dont find your answers here check with your GP-

Good work mum29, I'm also on day 2, but only at the start of it!! Hang in there it will be worth it.

I'm shocking with quitting, everyone jokes that I quit every Monday!!! Which isn't that far from the truth!! If smoking is so good, then why when we are smoking we so desperately want to quit???

Hang in there and stay strong!!!
