Post Acute Withdrawal Symptoms
Posted 29 February 2012 - 07:43 AM
I'm day 51. For awhile I've got most of these symptoms on top of the physiological ones like runny nose, the tightness in chest, and the smokers flu, etc etc etc.
So far i think the worst of my problem is a social one. I'm usually a really go with the flow guy and can make someones day when they're feeling down, but since i quit smoking i became like a introvert. I could hardly understand what people are saying sometimes... is like i heard what they said but in reality i didn't hear a thing or it just isn't process in my brain. Another case would be I can't control my emotion in a social environment and I often end up making things awkward. I'm not craving for a cigarette or anything, i'm just really tired of things not going the way it should. In the post-acute withdrawal symptoms article said something like make sure to tell your friend and family that you have (P.A.W.S) and at times your actions and words doesnt match up to reality. Is true.. the things i do doesn't match up with anything, but the last thing i do is to tell someone who don't know how this feels about my reality. Anyway is just so You know because you all know how this feel. Keep going yall

Know in your heart that you will NOT blow up or explode into tiny pieces if you don't have a cigarette. You might feel like a squirrel in a coffee can trapped in your own skin occasionally, but you won't blow up... and the feeling will go away pretty soon. -marciem

I started taking 6000mg fish oil (helps depression) as well as vit D3, B complex, iron, magnesium, calcium .....all things to help with mood. I'm confident I'll be better, but it can take a month or two for it all to start helping.
Also a well balanced diet. I never consume sugar but eat a pound of jolly ranchers now. That has to play a part in how I feel. Back to my veggies and chicken breast and tilapia, or any white fish. I think those of us experiencing symptoms should evaluate our diets. I've just been too LAZY to do anything about it earlier, lol.
It's good to know, however that I'm not nuts (well, completely lol). I'm glad I'm not alone in these symptoms. I was reading some of my posts here, thinking to myself "that's not quite what I meant to say", or, "that doesn't even make much sense!" I've been sounding like a major tool at times, making no sense!
These symptoms just solidify what a wonderful decision I have made for myself and my family. Anything capable of reducing my IQ to that of a turnip is definitely a dangerous drug!

I have no motivation at all here either. I sit here for hours and think, do something, go somewhere, just move!
I have suffered from mild depression in the past, but nothing major.
This is about the same I guess.
Mainly just so bored.
Well there is that laundry to do...... naw not today.
Or the car with ashes on the floor to clean.....naw maybe in a few days when its warmer. (it was almost 70 in ohio yesterday.......did I do it? noooooo)
The kitchen floor needs washed.......yeah tomorrow.
It seems I do the candy thing most of the morning and late evenings the most.
After my bad episode with the gastric problems, no more sugar-free for me. lol
Now its red hots and tic tacs. At least they are little. lol
For dinner, I usually make healthy meals. Lean meat & veggies and sometimes a side of fruit.
But lately for breakfast and lunch, not so much healthy.
