I have had alot going on in my life lately and I tried the chantix to quit smoking well all that did was cause anxiety. so I quit taking it and now 2 weeks later i just feel nothing, i dont feel anxious i dont feel depressed i was taking xanax but i dont know if that is what is causing it. Im not happy or anxious i feel sad and empty. Any suggestions on how to get over this feeling?

Did you quit smoking? I hope so. I am taking Chantix now to quit, but I still can't quit. I don't think I am trying hard enough. I had quit for a month this past winter and started again. My Bad... Are you going to any counseling? I highly recommend that. It is a good way to start a healing journey. And you are going to go on one.

I hope that you feel better soon. You may need a med adjustment. Do talk to your doctor.

Best wishes,

Hugs, Karen

I think it was Mark Twain who said that stopping smoking was the easiest thing he'd ever done. If he'd done it once he had done it a hundred times, he said.

Find someone who will compete with you in stopping smoking; check with that person each day to see if your competitor has broken the pledge; if not, the ball is back in your court to see that you don't smoke that day.

If ever there was a condition that required a day-to-day effort, it's stopping smoking. I was finally able to do it by eating hard candy when the urge hit to have a cigarette. It becomes much easier to
keep on track after about a month or two. After a year, you will never smoke again, but you might think one would be nice if you could handle it.

Read the Attorney General's Report for 1963 on what smoking does to the body. It's a killer; no doubt about it. That's what ultimately convinced me to go into competition to stop--that, and along with the idea that I would never let my sister beat me in competition.

Remember, the candy is easy to give up after you've stopped smoking.
 
That reminds me, does anyone want to go into competition to lose weight by giving up foods that have either sugar or bread in them?
 
Take care.

IG,

Thanks for the inspiring words. I guess I am like Mark Twain. I would go into a food competition with you, but I don't think I can give up my husband's home made freezer jam. lol... But we are running out. I also buy canned fruit sometimes, and that has sugar in it. Though there are a lot of jams and such that are sweetened with pear juice. I might be able to go that way. I will think about it. I have given up pepsi cola recently, it is hard. I am still drinking the lemon water and have lost somse weight. Not a lot, but some. I am happy for that.

I hope that your day continues to be good. Take care.

Hugs, Karen
