I quit cold turkey, too, so I can relate to a bit of what you are feeling. I found that for the first month of my quit, I could fall asleep at night, but would wake up 2 or 3 times a night. So every day, I got more and more tired. And that made me weak mentally, and I felt discouraged like you do. But for me, things got better after the first month. I started sleeping through the night again without waking up, and as I got more rested, I felt a whole lot better.
I know it's hard right now, Roxzee, but hang in there. You have come this far, hold on a little longer. Things will change for the better. You just have to be patient. Think about it. You smoked for 25 years. You can't expect to make a major change such as this without experiencing some side effects. Everything you are feeling is normal. But you have to give your mind and body time to adjust to living without the chemicals they were constantly bombarded with.
You have 18 days under your belt, Roxzee. Way to go! Honestly, you are doing great, and I hope you will keep it up. You will start to notice some benefits soon once your body adjusts. And then you are going to feel sooo much better. Truly.
Keep in touch. I'm rooting for you!
