nearly a week!

1 more full day and then its a whole week! whoop whoop.

Found today really hard again, just those times when I am without my daughter and normally would sit and relax for a few minutes, Feel like I now have to keep busy busy at all times and tbh its exhausting!

On a positive note, didn't want to scream at as many people today so that's a good sign!!

Quick question.....

Does anyone suffer or has suffered from insomnia while giving up and if so how long it lasts?

  • I did for a week or so. Others I know have suffered longer.

    I know what you mean about not stopping. Make sure you're drinking water as it's easy to get dehydrated.

    Well done on the week (nearly):D

    Just popped by, to say a massive well done, great news:)

  • Well done Chloe...insomnia, no. Shouting at people? Very much so :o

    Insomia, yes, I remember it well, it's awful. Can't even give you a timescale as we're all different, but, I can promise you it will pass.

    You're doing fab at almost a week quit:)

    Well done Chloe!!

    Are you saving up your ciggie money for a treat at the end of your first week? :)

  • Insomnia no, I went the other way and literally slept my way through the first couple of months zzzzzzzz :D

  • My sleep pattern was all over the place for the first few weeks. It took around a month for me before I began to sleep through the night again. It will pass Chloe, honestly. :)

    Well done on hoving towards the end of week one. That is a fantastic achievement! :D

  • Well done on staying quit one week. I am sure all these discomforts will pass and we shall all feel great in a few more weeks

  • Well done!! I really struggle with sleep patterns when I first quit, usually lasts about a couple of weeks for me. I know what you mean about having to stay busy all the time, this was my downfall on my recent failure to stop. I was just so exhausted. Therefore I have decided not to do the 'running around like a headless chicken' bit right from the beginning of my quit. So hopefully I can get used to it.

    Remember, you can't get used to not smoking in a situation unless you do it a few times. You can't run around forever, practice sitting down with a cuppa to watch corry (or whatever you like) it's only for half an hour and then build it up. It's greT to have a clean house (which I always do when I quit) but don't run yourself ragged xx ;)

  • well done on nearly a week quit Chloe :) everybody is different, some sleep all the time some cant sleep for shizzle but whichever one you have its totally normal and will subside the further you get in your quit, coongrats :) xx
