Hi everyone. I've been lurking here since early July, and on July 7 I had my last cigarette and quit on July 8. This Sunday will be 8 weeks and next weekend will be 2 months officially quit. I had been a full-time smoker for over 6 years
I did want to sign up, though, a few weeks ago, as I had fell into a serious depression, the worst I've experienced possibly ever. I questioned my friendships, my place in life, longed for a relationship because I'm not in one, etc...
It went away when I realized I wasn't taking my vitamins, but recently, I still feel a little down and even my exercise routine that I started when I quit has suffered. I know if I keep exercising I won't feel as bad, but some days it's not enough. When I smoked cigarettes, these thoughts might have lingered, but would eventually float away with a puff. Is there something else I can do to relieve my depressing thoughts?
Anyway, this forum is one of the reasons I got through the first couple of weeks, with help from the book "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking" and lots and lots of water. Great to be here officially
