I completely understand everything your going thru..except the menopause. I am going thru menopause right now so I understand that but I have been smoke free for almost 2 yrs
Do not walk run to your Dr if you can. See if he/she can help you get something to help subside your insanity..do not blow you 22 day quit. I felt the same way, I had a full blown anxiety attack...never had one in my life. Just felt completely lost!! My Dr helped me with aid of some meds and was just helpful in everystep.
Hang in there, take it day by day. And no matter what....the cig is not going to take the pain, anxiety or you mind away and make it better!!! What your feeling is normal, with a topper of hormones out of whack.
Knowing what I went thru just like you to quit..keeps me away from the smokes. Remember this feeling, it will go away and keep you away from smoking.
Congrate's on the quit, you will not regret it!!!
