Hi there gomez,
Oh my quit-friend, I can relate! I had so many plans in place and I think I managed following through on, well, nothing!
All I could manage was sleeping, watching tv shows that I'd never admit to watching, being an absolute jerk to my husband and crying. Yes, I cried a lot.
Something that changed, and helped me, was committing wholeheartedly to my quit. When it was super hard I came here to read about what others experienced. I researched and learned exactly what was happening to me both physically and mentally.
I took up mindful meditation and keep a journal to vent, and to reflect. Something that really made a difference was I stopped putting expectations on the day. Whatever it looked like was how I approached it. If I'm have a lot if cravings, then that's just what the day is. If I'm having a good day, I embrace it but don't expect it to be every day.
Keep us posted, gomez, and just take it an hour at a time. We've got your back!
