Hi there, I've given up smoking, only 3 days away from celebrating the one month mark, and feeling strong, well most of the time. Interesting to read the side affects others are feeling. I feel very focused this time and really want to celebrate the milestones as they come along. I have given up many times over the years but never made it to 1 year, so that is my goal to begin with. I went on the patches for 5 days and then cold turkey, started on a weekend. It's tough, dizzy spells and total lack of concentration, that is why I choose the weekend to do it. I didn't have trouble sleeping before hand and now I regularly wake up in the middle of the night and it takes a couple of hours to get back to sleep. Plus my tolerance levels have decreased significantly, I now can see all the twits around me.....LOL. I appetite has also increased, and I am eating more, but this also tends to happen to me over winter and I usually gain a couple of kilos, so I'm not going to worry greatly. I wonder how long I am going to continue to wake during the night, has anyone had similar experience?
