Over 3 Weeks now

Today marks 24 days smoke free and cravings are becoming less and less as the days go on. I am suffering from a bit of anxiety and depression though which I guess is just my brain balancing out chemicals. Can't say I have really been tempted to smoke even when drinking with friends. Started chewing  toothpicks for the oral fixation and can do that anywhere . Just hope this depression subsides it is purely chemical I know because good things are happening in my life but I cannot break through this slight fog of negativity :/

  • Hi untitledR welcome to the forum. Interesting name. I guess the depression will go with time on the bright side if ur life was crap at present it would be worse. Well done on 3 weeks brilliant 😀

  • Fantastic well done , the depression and anxiety are the only symptoms that I am encountering at present. But I have to say few and far between now more good days than bad. So hold on it there , 3 weeks are the tricky times they say, and  3 months  (which is nearly me) Our brain is adjusting with all them chemicals we put there by smoking. Stay strong . I find that trying to keep myself occupied, with anything really from cleaning , walking, reading etc to try and shake it off. We are here for you x

  • Hi Maddy how are you doing? 😀

  • Hi Andrew , doing ok thanks, still away at my caravan , the only thing I'm fighting at the moment is depression every now and again, other than that feel like I have cracked this quitting :) how you doing. Have you got another dog ? I bet you miss Toby , homes are never the same are they xxx

  • Hi Maddy good that ur having a few days away. Yes I miss Toby but getting used to him being gone now. 99% decided I don't want another dog now. I miss Toby but I don't miss having a dog. I looked after a friends dog for two days this week and I had to get back into thinking when to let her out and feed her and let her out before bed and first thing in the morning. I haven't missed that. And she has a massive drink then stands there looking at you dribbling slobber all over the floor! And I'm thinking I can't go back to this again lol. Hope ur enjoying your break xxx😀🐶

  • Yep will do . Take care xx
