Okay, so I feel like crap. I've just started my 6th week, have had a month on full-strength patches and a week on weaker ones. I haven't really craved at all (compared to when I tried to quit cold turkey a couple of times which was unbearable) but have had lots of moments when I felt like a fag but couldn't have one. And now I feel terrible. I feel bloated and fed up. I don't think I've put on any weight (I'm too scared to get on the scales) but my body feels like it's saving every single thing I put in it. I feel really depressed. I know that if I had a fag now it would be horrible and not make me feel like I want to but I feel so out of sorts it's terrible. I can't concentrate at work and I feel completely depressed every evening. I've never had bleeding gums before and have never taken laxatives before. I can't sleep. I feel listless. Does this all go away eventually because I am not going to smoke again, I just don't want to feel like this for the rest of my life.
