Posted in Staying quit 17 Oct 2012

The time has flown but it hasn't been easy. I've been suffering from depression the whole time (apparently quite common amongst quitters) and it is a bit of a struggle at the moment. I will stay strong but the temptation is there. I've also put on a heap of weight which doesn't do my self esteem any good either. The upside? Today I'm not so sure but usually it's the freedom from being a slave to the nicotine monsters. Looking forward to living without dark shadows...

    Yeah well done. I was absolutly a slave to Nicotine. When can i have one, how long untill the next one. Not going somewhere if i could not smoke.
    I have also put on heaps of weight. Now 12 months on i am ready for my next battle. Loose the weight. No more excuses. The smokes are gone now it will be the weight. You can do it.

    Hi Nowanonsmoker, well done!! What an achievement, you should be very proud.I understand and experienced the dreaded depression and I'm only on day 16. I sought advice from my GP and he has prescribed ant-depressants . just a thought.

    Yeah, it is a challenge. I go through the same stuggle as everyone else and do have moments where I just want to throw it in. Hanging on to a thin thread but everyday counts so I hope it will get to the stage where all these uneasiness will go away forever.
