    Symptoms during quit

    I have some of the same. My sleeping is screwed up and some tingling in extremities. I also came off celexa about 3 years ago. That was a SOB. Have you ever heard of brain zaps? Hahahaa..all part and parcel of getting clean from a psych med like celexa. I did use one thing from that experience. Rather than fear or worry about the zaps I came to accept them. They didn't hurt, it was just a weird feeling. Eventually, I started to welcome them and look forward to them. They lost a lot of authority as a quit symptom/withdrawl issue. THe only other problem I then had to deal with was night sweats for a few days while my body purged the crap out. Same with nicotine. Celexa boosted dopamine too. Just slower so you never realized that was the connection. Nicotine though is a little harder because the dopamine comes right away. But NOT impossible!!

    SLEEP!!!

    My sleep is majorly fouled up. I am on day 5 of no nicotine. I feel really pretty good. Peppier during the day than I have in years. No chew fueled crash requiring naps or coffee or sugar to keep going. The bad part--I wake up at night. Four, five, six times a night. Sometimes it's to go pee. Mostly, it's I just feel like I'm done sleeping. WTH? After three hours? Really? I'm 43. Haven't been a good sleeper in years. Had a sleep study and wasted 1800 dollars to hear "you have restless legs but nothing severe" Probably caused by too much nicotine. I'm really looking forward to going to bed at 10, sleeping until I want to get out of bed, and not having to be up at the crack of 530 am to stuff my face full of chew for an hour and half before school starts... So please, people...tell me my sleep will straighten out. And tell me when!

    Cold Turkey HELL, but works

    Its working for me. I quit 8 days ago. Made it 3 days, one fail. Got back and hit it again. Currently on day 5 no nicotine. Super proud. I have not been 5 days free of nicotine since back in the 1900s. (23 years ago) I was a little crabby but I tried to make everything a positive. Every crave was one less to get over in the end. Take a deep breath. I know, it's all b.s platitudes, but they are true. I just want to know when my sleep gets better.

    intro

    No worries, it was all good. Didn't even get to have a drink last night, just watched hockey. Today I had a beer with my supper on the way home, but didn't even think about a chew in a serious fashion...Had maybe 2 craves today that lasted maybe 4 minutes each.

    intro

    Hey everyone. I'm back. Time to give it another shot. What made me try this time? Well, it was a bunch of things. I had the flu and still didn't feel my best. I decided to just do it. Give it one day, see how I felt. Well, I felt so good I made 2. And ALMOST 3. Took a half a piece of nicotine gum and a tiny chew...and then felt gross. Right back, day 1, day 2, day 3. In 15 minutes I am 72 hours nicotine free. That, my friends, is a record. I have not made it so long without nicotine since college, which was 20 some years ago. Didn't think it was possible. Here's the scary part. All things considered--I feel amazing. For some reason I feel strung out at bed time...can't sleep, legs toss all night. But as far as general energy? I am kicking ass this week. Energy levels way up. My head is fouled up. It takes me a long time to think. Oh yeah, I teach junior high kids. I have learned to think on my feet as fast as I can. Also, it is getting better little at a time. So I'm on day 3, 4 tomorrow. We're gonna do this. The guy who was trying to talk me into cold turkey four years ago wasn'/t so dumb after all! Read as much as you can about this. I did. I learned craves really only last 3 minutes. I thought it was forever. No. So I have rambled enough. I have done really well this week. Little scared, Friday night is usually hockey night here along with beer/capn morgan/etc. I know i can be strong. See you all tomorrow am.
