Posted by Magstoyou Aug 24, 2013

Hi it Maggie,

I had gone to accupunture on Tuesday because I picked up a laundry basket full of clothes pulled my lower back out..  I have to say-she made me feel relaxed & got a good nights sleep. I don't know if there is a stomach flu going around or what. Fill sad and want to go back to bed!!  My back is still hurting and still filling blaugh. But no ciggarettes. Fell like going  back to bed!!!!

Hi My names Maggie,

I am 65 years old and work part time as a secretary-bookeeper.

My quit date was July 16th. Have not smoked for 35 days Am feeling like I am all alone in this. My family says, thats great, We are so proud of you. But they don't know what I am going through. I am using the nicoderm patch 21 mg. And will soon be going down to 14mg. I'm scared that when I go down further I am going to start smoking again. As for now i will all of a sudden have a craving for a cigarette and I keep telling myself it will pass and it does and I keep going. I get an extra anxious feeling or gitty if that makes sense feeling off and on and feel not focused well, tired.I have a craving for sugar and I am really hungry. I have been on a low colestral diet and took off 42 pounds. I feel like I have gained weight. I feel all alone in this because I am doing it all by myself. So glad I found this site and am hoping to get some friends on this site as a support system!! I guess this is normal to feel this way. Still going forward . What I have seen on the site (haven't been all around it-are people really trying their best to quit),

Sincerely Maggie
