I had to stop smoking 6 days ago, due to a chest cold, that turned into a very nasty chest infection. In 36 years I have never had a infection like it.
I didn't want to quit but it made sense, I have now reached 6 days cold turkey. And it's hell, I do not have cravings that come and go they are there permanently I also cannot sleep, I was even with my chest infection sleeping 8-9 hours straight, now I'm barely getting 3 hours without waking up sweating and then I'm up, I can't exist on 3 hours I'm tired so cranky I'm craving so cranky, I'm just so miserable. I'm not in a position where I can rest in the day, I have a very active job I'm on my feet for 8 hours at least and then come home to sort family meals etc, I'm at the point where I'm ready to go and buy a box of cigarettes, and give up.
But I am thinking I have got this far so continue, I had promised my husband that I would stop come new year and had planned with a work colleague to do it together. But I have stopped early and I have never felt so tired when I had two newborns I felt better, (I didn't smoke during pregnancy found it easy not to this however is hard)
Please any help or advice grateful as I'm struggling.
