Day 5

I have never tried to give the cigarettes up before and never realised just how much of an addiction I had.

The anger I have had over the last 4 days though has been unbelievable and has probably been the worst part about quitting so far. I am now on day 5 and I am not feeling so worked up or tense. I have found the sweets jar though and that bothers my hips a little :(

I am feeling fairly positive right now and may just sort myself a gym membership to counter act those sweets :).

  • Welcome Zene,

    It's the best thing you will ever do for yourself this quitting lark. You are going to get your pride, control, health and wealth back.

    Don't worry about being all over the place emotionally, it'll calm down really quickly.

    And don't worry too much about the sweets either. Be kind to yourself.

    Anyway, stay strong and keep posting chuck

    We'll all be here for you for the good times and the bad

    Thank you Molly :)

  • Welcome Zene. You've made a convincing start,well done.

    I think part of the problem with the quitting symptoms we get is their unfamiliarity. The unfamiliarity gives rise to a feeling of shock, and seems to magnify the struggle with dealing with the symptom itself. So you end up dealing with two things - in your case, the challenge of extreme anger and, at the same time, unfamiliarity/shock with feeling such extreme anger. This went on for 4 days, which must have seemed like an eternity to you.

    You've done very well handling this double whammy. :)
