Congratulations on day 15, first of all! You're doing such a good thing for yourself, and that goal of being happier and more content is getting closer day by day. You are strong to hang in there in spite of some hard times!
I'd love to hear what others here would advise. I'll get the ball rolling in the meantime.
One thing I recommend to anyone who's in the thick of the quitting smoking process is to treat themselves with extra T.L.C. Take the time to give yourself a pat on the back, do something nice for yourself every day, and also be patient with yourself. You could break this down as "pat, pamper, patience," I guess!
One other thought: sometimes it may help to adjust dosages of medications while quitting, as the brain chemistry can go through changes due to withdrawals, and some medications could be either more effective or less effective due to these temporary changes. This could be worth discussing further with your healthcare provider.
Hope this helps,
