This is such a HUGE battle for any addicted smoker - it's not like we can just put them down and forget about it. Withdrawal is for real and it is HELL.
I liken the feeling within my body as being on a crazy rollercoaster ride with no end in sight. Your body has that constant "falling" feeling and it's awful. Especially if people aren't particularly sympathetic during your ride through hell.
I've spent bouts cig-free thanks to patches - but when they wear off, the rollercoaster of hell comes back.
I WISH that someone would have told me that, one day when you WANT to quit, it will be the most difficult feeling you will EVER have to live through. I watched my ex's paternal grandmother and my "grandmother-in-law" die from smoking... Yet the addiction lives. It's truly the most difficult thing I've tried quitting, and to be honest, daily use of speed was much easier.
Wishing you the best of luck during this difficult time... ((Hugs))
