Last night I had an emotional time of things. I felt down and my addiction took the opportunity to slip in and whisper in my ear. It took the chance to suggest that it doesn't matter. Everything is awful so why not just smoke again. It was the perfect mix for disaster.
The good news is, I did not listen to it. I stared it down and and realized that, even though I felt like rubbish, this was going to be the one thing I was going to get right. I've worked too hard to get this far. I did not want to regret this one. So I vigorously chewed some cinnamon gum until my jaw hurt and then got some sleep.
I don't normally suffer from such an emotional state as this and I was wondering if an increase in emotions is common in the quit.
Question for you:
Have you notice an increase in emotions during your quit?
For those a bit further into the quit, does it get better?
