Hello everyone and a huge massive thankyou for your responses to my post. wow today after reading and receiving so much positive reinforcement (and being reassured that this despair is not going to last foever) I drove into work and I felt something akin to happy. Today is the first day I have felt like little old me is still there and is peaking through. My manager said how nice it was to see the real me back. It just goes to show how vitally important having support is. Yesterday I swore I was barely treading water and today I'm calm and in control and enjoying the swim. Im sure Ill still face tough days ahead but I feel I have turned a corner and you guys are the reson why. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hi. I quit in 1999 for 16 years. Yay - but I gave in recently so I am back doing it again. I remember the 1st year in real detail. I was pretty miserable - partly wondering if life was worth living without cigarettes and questioning whether I can enjoy anything at all Well, for me it did take a very long time to feel comfortable again. I think getting thru 1/2 a year was the better part of the worst of it. But after that time went by, I did start to find real peace within, and enjoyment inside and out. I was also like you, many years as a smoker starting as a teenager. I didn't know I could quit or that I could like living without cigarettes. Time changed all that. I wish I was posting here for you without having relapsed because for many years I don't think cigarettes entered my thoughts at all - and the triggers and reaching were just completely gone. Stick with it - the best is yet to come.

Good that it's better now, PinkSapphire! The more advanced the quit the easier it's going to be, you'll see :)
