Day 4 and struggling

Hi

Day 4 and really struggling this morning. Tears streaming down my face for nothing, not really crying just that tears will not stop coming.

I am not going to smoke, just want to feel better. Motivation low need to kick myself to get going. Sucking hard on a lozenge and have a patch on but can't get rid of the feeling.

Tears stopped at moment as I post this must be good to be voicing how you feel.

Hope you all have a good day xxxxxx

  • Awww hun that's foul isn't it?

    ((((hugs))))

    I felt exactly the same a couple of days ago, angry, grumpy, teary, the works *but* it passes - posting on here really helps like you found!!

    I can recommend if you're into (legal :p) herbal stuff rhodiola liquid too, it tastes rancid, but it really does calm you down *and* the best bit for ex-smokers like us is that it activates the same brain receptors as smoking - some people use it as a quit aid actually.

    It's about £12 on Amazon, or probably available in health shops :)

    Hang in there Gilly, you can do it!!

  • Bless you Gilly, perhaps you could let go and have a real sobbing session, crying releases endorphins which may be why you're "leaking" as the brain realises this and is trying to get a fix of feel good, rescue remedy is also helpful, I always have some in my bag. ;)

  • Hang on in there Gilly, you are doing so well.

    Hope it gets better for you very very soon! x

  • Awww Gilly im sorry :( Its horrible I know, I remember being an emotional wreck....but I do recommend what others have said, and that's a good old fashioned cry session!!

    It will pass Gilly, and I know you probably wont see that just yet, but it will pass and it will get easier too :) Hang on in there Gilly, and keep us posted here too :):)

  • You can do it Gilly, just do whatever it takes to get you through this day.

    Stick with it now ya hear! hope you feel better soon.

    Hi Gilly,

    It's a few hours down the track, so I hope you feel a bit better now :)

    Seriously, read THIS ...and that goes for anyone who feels a bit wobbly!

    Cheers,

    Steve
