Why can't i sleep ?

Five and a half days in and i have very mixed feelings. Physically i'm starting to feel really good apart from not being able to sleep (and when I do I have really horrible dreams and thoughts and wake up in a cold sweat) The thing that is really worrying me is I feel like my resolve is weakening. I want to do this so much i could almost cry but i'm finding it so hard, got to remember i'm not having one today. Trying to stay positive.... Thanx for letting me air my views I can almost guarantee that without this forum, the support the sharing of similar goals and fears I would of cracked. So thanx KEEP THE FAITH :cool:

    Hi

    Don't give in just take one day at a time

    The sleeping thing is all apart of quitting I was the wslking dead for a good month I couldn't sleep and when I did I Wud have really horrid dreams and wakè up sweating so that Wud scare me going back to sleep

    Eventually I had to go see my GP for help he gave me a werks worth of valium to relax me and sleeping tablets.

    At first I thort I was going mad thinking that there was sumfin up with me.. I never new it was from giving up. Even the doctors said it was stress didn't even mention anything that it cud be quitting related. I only new from this forum. So stop taking the tablets and just powers thru

    I'm in my 4 month now and the sleeping is 90% better I still have a few crazy dreams.. Sum of them funny( last night I ripped my areial out thè telly thinking it was a bottle of water to drink) cudnt belive it when I woke up and saw it on me floor I fort it was a dream I had

    Keep it up you will get thru it

  • Kalms Nighttime

    Hi there,

    I've had a crappy nights sleep, and on my previous quit i remember that there was a week or so of feeling uber sleepy, i have got myself some Kalms night time from Boots which is a herbal tablet containing Valerian and helps me when i have trouble dropping off.

    If that doesn't work then there is an over the counter drug called sominex which used to be an antihistamine for hayfever, until they realised it made people fall asleep instead, still it got rid of the sneezes too... the non herbal one is better, be aware it can make you a bit drowsy the next day, maybe trial it on a friday or a day when you haven't got much on the next day just to see.

    It wont last for long, and you've come so far that it would be daft not to carry on!!!

  • dreams

    Ahhhh and that reminds me... the other night i had a dream about being chased by a massive scary cigarette that wanted to kidnap me.....

    .....Oooo dream interpretation there i think is fairly clear eh? :rolleyes:

  • You will experience many changes to your body over the coming weeks and sleeping is one of those. It doesn't last and so enjoy the ride.
