Back to terrible

Well my girlfriend has gone away for her job for 2 years. That leaves me at home with no friends because I don’t talk to smoker friends.

I’m trying to get back in my sleep routine and it’s not working. I only had a few hours of sleep last night at most. Anxiety and depression hitting me big time. I think I’m going to go back on my antidepressant.

Well another day, another problem

Hey jmh335, I am almost seven months in to a quit. Long term smoker who used weed to mange depression but have also taken anti depressants for 20 yrs. I have tried over these 20 years to come off the anti depressants often and recently had another go at coming off , and the suffering got very bad. I decided about two weeks ago to go back on and it has made a huge difference. It was a hard decision but I am glad that I have made it because it really helps me reconnect with the positive side of my quit. I've had a good discussion with my GP and she says that having being off them for two months and the suffering increasing to the point where I felt wretched was a good indicator that I it does help. So why knock back the things that help? It has been a tricky thing for me to work out which part of suffering over these months is the quit and which part is just part of my condition.

I’m almost sure that it is the quit for me. I’ve never needed them before or while smoking. I’m also lucky that I’m able to take a very low dose, so I’m not as affected as much, and I can come off them easier. Hopefully someday I’ll make a full recovery and not need them.
