I am two months smoke free, and have been dealing with the symptoms, even though sometimes I get fearful and think, "what if this isn't withdrawal?" Lol. Anyway, yesterday I felt very anxious and jittery, and in the shower I got very weak and had to sit down to finish washing. My doctor can't find anything wrong with me except high CPK "muscle enzymes" which seem to increase everytime I've ever started back smoking. I saw a special friend that I have been in love with for many years yesterday, and we haven't been speaking. Afterward for the remainder of the night my thoughts kept going to this person and I constantly felt a racing heart feeling in my chest. My blood pressure was extremely high all night and I felt jittery and couldn't go to sleep. Heart rate was constantly over 100. In the past I would smoke a cigarette when thinking about or crossing paths with this person. Could my episode last night be related to me not being able to cope with a mentally/emotionally stressful situation without a soothing, heavenly puff on the old veluptuous cancer stick? Or does this sound completely foreign to you guys. Last night was terrifying, but the pressure and racing heart have subsided tremendously this morning, although my pressure is still a bit elevated from getting NO sleep last night and now I'm at work. Sorry so long. Thanks for your help! This is hard! Lol
