I'm well in to my second week now and enjoying the confidence of having survived the first week without caving-in.
Today I woke up at 4am and couldn't get back to sleep. I had this niggling anxious feeling lurking in the back of my mind, hovering in my chest. I couldn't shake it.
I'm no stranger to anxiety and I pulled out all my weapons; chamomile tea, vitamins and magnesium, nice hot shower, long walk with dog across the fields, got stuck into work on the computer, did some cooking, skyped with children.
But the anxiety wouldn't budge.
I DID NOT CONSIDER A CIGARETTE!
But I did wonder if the anxiety was caused by my quitting.
Has anyone else experienced anxiety at this stage of their quit? And if so did you find something that helped? Also,how long does it last?
