Stuck in a Hard Spot

Good morning beautiful people!

First I just want to thank everyone for the outpouring support, information and encouragement. I’m so thankful I found this site. I had an appointment with my doctor and got on new medications for my anxiety/depression/Social Anxiety (which is a bad one right now) and another med for panic attacks. My doctor says slowing down is fine, but even my quit date is to soon and I need to get my mental health better first. Well, problem is.. I’ve been being told that for the last 8 years and I don’t want to wait anymore. Plus smoking, even just the fear of what it’s doing to my health, is causing a lot of anxiety in itself. Planning to quit cold turkey after this pack (23 left). Just don’t think I can wait to see if the new medication helps me. I have patches and gum if it gets too bad. Stuck in a hard spot.
