Thank you and congrats on quitting. I quit smoking about six years ago and never looked back! I live a very healthy life, I don't drink, eat bad, take vitamins and exercise a lot. The only big big problem I have is my crazy anxiety. I had a bad past two years which led me to the prescription of Vicodin which led to addiction. Yes , I am getting my pills prescribed, I need to stop but I feel so crummy when I do and crummy if I don't. Now that I'm pregnant, my anxiety has went from manageable to OMG am I killing our child. I hear worse stories and in tapering down now to 5/day at 5 weeks but each day is a struggle! I can't cold turkey because it puts me at risk for miscarriage.
I have not with meds. But with smoking cigs. With drawls suck no matter what your coming off of. My dad was on speed years ago and I remember his with drawl.. was scarey. They way he did it was gum, getting help thru his Dr and from na meetings. the way I did it with smoking ( was a pack a day for many years ) was gum and a lot of prayer. Try some meditation. Bit do talk to your doctor about it. He can help you. And look into na meetings. Take it one day at a time. You can do it.
