Well I am over a month of no smoking and its OK...just ok....its weird that I am having good days and bad but I suppose on the grand scheme of things its only been a month? how do you break the habit of 12 years?? I know now that it is all habit and mentality at this point but I am just wanting to know and clarify that it is normal to still be feeling quite down and irritable? also, is it normal to still be feeling a bit tired by the end of the day? its not as intense or as bad as it was but I find my mood, especially in the morning to be quite low. to be honest I feel a bit depressed....which has only started since I quit smoking. then other parts of the day I feel amazing...I suppose I just want to know if this is normal etc etc. I don't know whats to come...is there anything else I should expect?????
On the bright side I am generally feeling healthy, i really struggle in the beer garden!!!!!!!
So to sum up i was wondering if someone could help me with the following based on your own experiences:
1. normal to feel sad/mood swings
2. tired by the end of the day (in bed by 10)
3. how long before beer garden doesn't affect me or how long before i can go out confidently and not worry - at the moment i havnt smoked when drank and have woken up feeling great about it but during the night out i find it hard.
4. am i always going to feel a sense of being "trapped" by cigarettes in the sense that theyre always going to have a hold on me?
