question for ex smokers
« on: June 02, 2014, 02:09:49 PM »
I was womdering if any ex smokers experienced a major drop in anxiety levels after you've stopped smoking? I've been a smoker for over 10 years and I've always wondered if that's the reason my anxiety levels are high compared to before I smoked. Also how long did the with drawa feelings last? That's a huge reason why I've put off quitting. I'm scared of tye withdrawal. Silly I know, but it's just one of my fears.

Hi......I'm on ex-smoker.  Regarding the withdrawal feelings, I think it's a matter of what you allow to get into your head.  I found that staying busy and finding other things to do helped with any withdrawal.  The only withdrawal feelings I remember having is the cravings for a cigarette, and that's when you just stay busy and refocus on something else. 

Don't fear the withdrawal symptoms....continuing to smoke is much worse on you than any withdrawal symptoms in my opinion!!
