Feeling really tired and sleepy

I have quit smoking now for 5 days. I am feeling so tired and sleepy. It feels kind of like a virus or something. I have no energy and feel just beat. Is this a normal part of stopping? I'm so worried.

Yup, that is a part of quitting and detoxing your body. Just hang in there is does get better. Do not let your mind think you need a smoke to "wake you up".

Trust me your mind and body will try to trick you this next month or so. Just say to yourself "I will not smoke right now", take it day by day and minute by minute. If you need to visit your Dr get some help from him. My Dr was my BF for the first 6 months...he helped me so much.

Hey, I have over a 1 1/2 quit and I was a smoke hound. I think I could have been voted least likely to quit..but I did

You can too! Be good to yourself and 5 days...that is great. Reward yourself also.

Re: Feeling really tired and sleepy

Thanks for your encouragement. I'm on day 6 now and was wonderful all day, not craving at all. But now all of a sudden it's there, the dreadful crave. I know this time I can't go back!! I have been sick with sinus, etc. more than I have been healthy in the last six months. I need all the encouragement I can get. thank you again!
