I feel terrible!

I have not smoked in nearly a week. I feel awful still! When I try to go to sleep, I can feel my heart pounding so hard that it keeps me up all night long. I am tired and apparently suffering from some major anxiety. Any suggestions?

I feel terrible!

Thank you for your responses! I did visit my doctor and he said that I may be reacting to the adrenaline that the nicotine had blocked. I wasn't sure if it was normal to feel this bad after a week. I was wanting to see if anyone had similar symptoms or if maybe my doctor is full of it. I smoked for 13 years, so I guess I could expect some withdraws. I assumed that it would be psychological, not physical.

Thanks! Everyone has been so helpful! I thought I was going crazy!!! Oh and WOW that is alot of cigarettes you haven't smoked! Gross, huh? On my third day it said 76 and I was totally grossed out. I pray to stay as strong as you (well with this kind of withdrawal pain I don't see myself smoking ever again) [B]My Milage:[/B] [B]My Quit Date: [/B]7/13/2007 [B]Smoke-Free Days:[/B] 6 [B]Cigarettes Not Smoked:[/B] 120 [B]Amount Saved:[/B] $36.00 [B]Life Gained:[/B] [B]Days:[/B] 0 [B]Hrs:[/B] 11 [B]Mins:[/B] 0 [B]Seconds:[/B] 51

Need some help!

You are an inspiration! I have been afraid of a fight with the ex or a family emergency... But you are so right, what would smoking solve? NOTHING! Good job! I will keep your strength in mind when the jerk comes around.

Hello

Hi! I am new to quitting as well! I have gone 6 long days without a smoke. So far I have just ignored the cravings or kept myself busy doing something else. If you ignore the craving, it will pass. Drink lots of water and imagine all of the cool stuff you are going to do with the money you save. Oh and I love this site! It's really cool to get on here and see my milage. You can see how many cigarettes you have NOT smoked and how much money you have saved. The people on here have been totaslly awesome and supportive too. Good luck!

hello

Hi Jennifer, I am sorry you are feeling so bad. I can totally sympathize right now. It will all be worth it in the end, I am sure. Your kids will be happy when you are around to see their kids. Don't give up!

Woke up this morning with the worst craving ever.

I am sorry that you are feeling so bad. You are doing SO GOOD though! Looking at the number of days that you and other members have gone without smoking has really helped me through this very rough first week. I hope it gets easier for you!
