I have not had a cigarette for 3 weeks now and I have single handily caused all around me to hate me. Am in the same boat.
I cry too much, I get angry if the wind blows the wrong way, I’m afraid I am going to hurt myself. I decided it was time to stop. The first time I stop for 1yr but I got really stressed out about something and pick up cigs again. I did experience depression, anxiety, easily angered and trouble sleeping but it was well worth it to become a non-smoker.
My anger is so bad it scares me, I sleep a few he’s every day everything I eat or drink taste nasty. He eventually put it out, but was particularly resentful- was this a very very bad idea?

I am on an emotional rollarcoaster ride that seems to never end.
I was within for two days before he blew his head off. After 20 years of smoking I’m finding the hardest thing is filling the times when I would be smoking with something else. I am on day five and I am about ready to jump out of my skin!
I figured out that’s its not that I AM angry, its just that my tolerance for BS is really really low since I quit. It is good to track the improvements to health as well, as that can be reaffirming.

Hmm, I believe people reaching a low-point around day 60-100 is due to Nornicotine being depleted. I don’t crave a smoke it all.
Did my brain stop making endorphins ? I believe that is what led me to drinking because I was not a big drinker before that. I felt horrible all the time.
Cigs are expensive and yet I am ready to go back to smoking so as not to keep snapping at my wife and my 6 year old wonderful child. 1,4-dioxane, often called dioxane is one of these chemicals.

Neurons, Neural Networks and Neural Pathways. No will power required at all.
Thinking the love of his life had gone forever, he hung himself. Each one takes 10 minutes or less. Nicotine withdrawal is a personal and private battle.
It has been two weeks and I am fighting it everyday. I go off on anyone at a drop of a hat. 2 years ago I quit cold turkey.
I find the head stuff worse than the physical withdrawl. The urge to smoke started to decrease on day 3.
DON,T GET INTO THE PROBLEMS I HAVE . In the meantime, when the urge to smoke comes, usually at the most inopportune times, I read and reread the health benefits of cessation. I considered meds for the anxiety which has at times been debilitating. ESRD, varenicline was efficiently removed by hemodialysis .

Cigarettes and every other nicotine containing product took a great toll on how i looked from the outside and how i felt from the inside. I haven’t felt aggression and irritability like this since I was a teenager.
This time around I went to a hypnotist. How are the mood swings now? It is critical the ex smoker, and those within their social and professional spheres, are prepared for this.

CHANTIX during pregnancy reduces these risks. I’m using sunflower seeds to keep my mouth busy, it seems to be helping, but the crying, aggitation, and mood swings are another story. We just completed our regimen of Chantix. I did the same thing last night to my husband but he is also trying to quit at the same time as me so we get very volatile.
No problem quitting, even without any assistance. But, you don’t have to imagine. I just tried to vacuum and my vacuum cleaner is now in my driveway in 15 pieces. If you are taking prescription drugs, check for interactions here.
