When I smoke I wake up during the night for a fag. I also wake up at silly o clock and jump out of bed in anticipation of my first fag and coffee. During the last week admittedly I am wearing patches but I have been sleeping until 8am. I will have to start setting my alarm after twenty years of waking up naturally. When I have stopped in the past I have laid in bed in a morning feeling totally depressed and like there is no reason to get out of bed. This is what nicotine does to us. I realise this time that it is normal to not want to get out of bed and all of us who smoke and jump out of bed at 5.00 for a drag are the abnormal ones. I think I am feeling very positive about stopping this time which can only be a good sign. I don't think I have ever been in the right frame of mind before and always felt that I was making a huge sacrifice. The added bonus for me is that I will save over £200 a month and will get to spend more time at home with my precious daughters and my little jack Russell will get many more walks. Reading these posts are really encouraging and it makes me realise how many people are trying to give it up. Thank you everyone you are all so inspiring.
