Anxiety/Depression:


Anonyme (56 year) - January 10, 2003

"I stopped smoking, with help of the nicotine patch, on January 1. I have smoked for 38 years. In the last twenty years I smoked almost two packs a day. The problem I am having now is that I feel absolutely horrible. I have chills, my legs tingle, my arms hurt, I have absolutely no energy, and I have taken vitamins every day so I wouldn't lose strength. I used to be a healthy person, haven't been to a doctor in 20 years, and now because I decide to stop smoking, I feel horrible. Please tell me this will soon go away, as I would rather smoke and feel good, than not smoke and feel horrible. "
