Boy did I need to find this thread on this website today...right this very moment! I woke up full of anxiety today and couldn't seem to get it to pass...chewed gummed till my jaw hurt, talked on the phone, surfed the web and then started thinking...if only I could have one cig just to get me through this awful feeling that keeps overcoming me at moments throughout the day. I started reasoning that smoking would be better for me than if I had to start taking some anti-anxiety prescription the rest of my life and probably become addicted to that. Then, I thought after several hours of this torment...why don't I go on that website I haven't visited in a while and see if I can find something that will encourage me and help me through and I found this article. It didn't take the anxiety away completely, but it helped me remember what it would really be like after the initial "aaaahhh" moment. It reminded me of how far I had come after reading several posts and this article in particular. I was wondering....is there a time on this side of all of this that this anxious feeling completely goes away??? If so, how long usually? So thankful this sight is up and there for me at any time of day for me and the support I so desperately need at times! I have told so many of this site! Thanks for the site and the constant maintenance to it. I know it takes a lot of time and it is greatly appreciated!! NTAP! Nicotine free for 42 days!!
