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. ;)

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 :):)

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
