After I started up after I'd quit about a year ago, i realized that I have some anxiety issues that smoking was dealing with and promoting at the same time without me knowing. Since i've sought out the help i needed I've been much more level as far as my emotions go. This has also helped my weight loss significantly because i have more control over my emotions.

I had to go with one cig at a time, actually quitting seemed to be too final for something I really did enjoy and found so relaxing. I am now three years and almost four month choosing not to smoke right now. emoticon

I know, how difficult it is to stop once and for all.

Sooner or later, it will fall into place. We all experience some of the feeling that your feeling. It is a powerful addiction and it is the addiction in and of itself that is compelling you to feel the way that you do.

Your missing the fix. I smoked for 45 years and I kicked it. on my 60th birthday which was three and half years ago.

Hang in there and you will be Ms. Sunshine emoticon and healthier.

You're describing exactly why I have been unsuccessful in quitting.

My doctor suggested antidepressants to get through this phase, but I would not even fill the prescription because I didn't want either the stigma or the history or the thought of trading one drug for another.

UGH! My prayers are with you!

Ok, I have quit a million times.
Most recently earlier this year, and then picked up my two pack a week habit .
I've gotten down to just one a day, then something will set me off and I'll start back. I've quit for a few weeks/months/years at a time.

It gets harder.

Right now, I'm on day four of this go round. I don't want a cigarette, I wanna kick someone. I wanna cry, and whine, and be sad.

And feel sorry for myself. (and make up a bunch of stuff of why)

Has anyone else felt like a basket case crybaby whiner from this? I feel like I won't have any friends left, and don't really care. and this isn't like me at all. I"m usually little ms sunshine. Today? I wanna cry and kick people.

Goals:
If you want real results-they aren't coming for free.

Bless someone each day with my presence. Make them glad they are here.

Teach people how to love.
