Quit using acupuncture. I'm 44 days smoke free, but it seems im very anxious, depressed, and angry. However, I've had anxiety problems before I quit.. Nothing seems to help, im taking one day at a time but struggling. I go for walks, and chase a 2 year old. Did anyone else have a raise in anxiety that lasted so long..
When I got a craving I concentrated on my breathing and found the feeling passed after 2-3 minutes.
It’s my 2nd week and while it feels easier, I’m finding the heart palpitations really awful upon waking.
