I have not been on here for 3 weeks, but i am at a loss, it was all going well but i am finding the quitting very hard. Not for the issue of craving cigs because i dont, its the effects of stopping that is the problem, and i am starting to wonder is this really worth it? Since quitting i started to walk when cravings hit, on average i walk 5 miles most days and i have continued this because i enjoy it, but i have started eating more, i was over weight before but now, my husband says im snapping all the time which i do not see this, i think im talking in normal tones, and the depression, o boy im crying at everything, i feel like a complete wreck, i only have to talk about not smoking which doesnt bother me any my eyes are tearing up, telling my sons teacher on how he as been this morning as me tearing up. I havent felt like this 7 years when i had postnatal depression. My gums that were fine before have started to hurt and bleed alot since quitting, is this the normal process to quitting smoking? Does it get better? I have quite smoking twice before but that was due to pregnancies so smoking was not a option as unborn babies came first so it was easier. I dont know what to do. Isnt it mad how these white tubes with a yellow butt can rule you? I still have a single cig sitting on my kitchen window, its been there since the night i quit smoking. I kept it as a psychological aid as in if i need one it is there so i didnt have that panic and was able to quit. I still can not throw it in the bin, i only have to think about throwing and my stomach turns and i feel dread. Ok my plea for help turned into a essay lol. I hope everyone else is doing better.
