On to month 5

Okay so month 4 is done and dusted today!!! And the best news is, that I'm feeling a little better about myself. The last month has been quite crap really. Feeling down, depressed etc but today I can see a little light at the end of the tunnel. I don't think it's a coincidence that it's due to it getter lighter in the mornings, so I think I do have the SAD's. Just have to arm myself better for it next autumn. Plus this year hasn't been the greatest of years so I may have just had it a bit worse than usual.

Looking back I think you can tell in my posts I've been feeling down...but I'm getting my sense of humour back which is always a sign that I'm doing ok (oh no, some would say....but soz that comes with Lisa42 whether you like it or not).

Anyways, just a note to others that are struggling...I'm not out of the woods yet but perservere with your quit when you think everythings going shit and you feel awful about it.....a glimmer of hope does come along and shows you that all that you've been through has been worthwhile. I must say I'm particularly buoyed up knowing I've quit for 4 months as this is the longest I've ever quit for...I know I can make it now.

Keep on trucking people.

    Well done on your 4 month quit, take it one day at a time.

    There are lamps you can buy to combat SAD, something to think about for next Autumn/Winter.
