    I have had some pretty big cravings lately and have felt depressed at times but I am still smoke-free. I’ve got to push myself to get ready for the day and that gets me over one hump. Sometimes I miss smoking but not all the time, thank goodness. I think I’ve got to get up earlier and make myself a list of things I want to accomplish that day. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I pushed through the day. Got some things accomplished and even went for a walk on my treadmill. Tonight I did some journaling about how I was feeling and that seemed to really help. 9 days smoke-free.

    Hello Quitfriend,

    Congratulations on quitting smoking! That is a huge accomplishment.

    Everything you have mentioned above is very normal and will pass. Everyone who quits smoking has cravings and depression is a common withdrawal symptom. Please ensure you see your doctor if you feel your depression is worsening or not getting any better after a few days or so. It is also normal to miss smoking.

    I think going for a walk on a treadmill is a great way to help you stay quit. Exercise can make quitting easier. I also like the idea of doing a to do list each morning. 

    Keep up the great work and we are all rooting for you!

    Renee
