I got a lot of help from getting your comments on here from a question when I was feeling desperate, angry and depressed, lots of difficult emotions, week 1. Now I am really happy to not be smoking in week 4, have had a good, less intense time, thank goodness, over the last 3 weeks, but since yesterday a 'loss' feeling came back really strongly. I am not going to give in, staying strong!, but wonder if there's a recognisable pattern, stages to go through, like with bereavement. It might help me to be ready for them. I've been laid up with a bad back, so maybe it's just lack of being able to keep busy and diverted enough.
