My last cigarette was 2 weeks ago tomorrow. I had been smoking a pack a day for 20 years, with a 5-7 year break when I was pregnant and had young children. The last two weeks have understandably been a challenge. The physical withdrawal symptoms were just as I expected and manageable. I am finding the psychological symptoms much harder. I am the most irritable person in the universe. I can't concentrate. I am so depressed- at least I think I'm depressed! I'm certainly not suicidal, it's more like I am withdrawing inside myself and I am sad. I do miss smoking. I realize I can never smoke again, and I think I'm resigned to that, but it's hard. My husband still smokes but he is very supportive of me; I'm surrounded by supportive people. Basically, I was wondering what insights people could offer. When should withdrawal-related depression decrease, and when should I consider seeing a physician for medication for depression (not NRT!)? Thank you in advance for any replies. This forum is the reason I have made it 13 days!
