Day 4----no cigarettes💃🏿

Hello to all who are desperate to quit smoking🌹 Well, day 4 today and I'm feeling tired and sort of dizzy. My pulse has gone from 78 to 62 but my blood pressure remains at 100/60 approximately. My sleep patterns have changed. I wake up during the night wide awake to find out it's only 3am and then I have to try and go back to sleep. I just don't feel good physically but mentally I am determined to get through these withdrawal symptoms. I guess I must be depressed and/or lethargic. However; I'm not irritable (yet) hahaha

Anyone of you that can relate to this type of withdrawal pleeeease send me a message and let me know how you are doing. Okay hang in there🙋

  • Hi there;

    your body is return now free of nicotine, so restoring back to "normality".

    Smoking is far more detrimental to you than lack of sleep. Remember that all those symptoms are only in place because of the damage smoking has caused you in the past and you are now healing instead of in protection mode.

    Sleep pattern will eventually restore as will your health- you will have a natural supply of extra energy so use it - exercise like walking the dog ( or some-one elses, spring clean, garden etc., ) earlier in the day.

    If you wake early, don1t focus on what the time is and that you can`t sleep - or that will become a self fulfilled prophecy . Instead, keep your eyes closed, take a few really deep slow breathes; just relax down,one muscle group at a time, start at the head and work to toes gradually - once relaxed, imagine being somewhere relaxing and play this out. ....could be in a few months, enjoying that holiday you treat yourself to with all the ciggie money you are saving. go wild with your imagination.... This is self hypnotising yourself to be calm.

    The more you practise at this, the better you become.

    Realise that each day is a step nearer to success !
