Sleepless in West Hollywood, 5 days of freedom

Blog Post created by mpnaegle on Apr 24, 2020

At midnight my time, I entered my 5th day of freedom.  I feel good about that, and I also feel better physically, mentally and emotionally versus when I smoked.  But I can’t get into a normal sleep schedule.  Between this ongoing shelter in place/quarantine and also this newfound freedom from smoking, to just general angst about money, bills, and uncertainty—I can’t get a normal night’s sleep. Last night I didn’t fall asleep until 4 AM, and slept in till 11 AM.  So naturally I was out of sorts most of yesterday.  Tonight, I’m still awake and wondering if I should just get up and watch tv for a while.  I’m thinking this is a side effect of quitting smoking.  Oh God, I hope it passes soon.  Anyways thank you for reading this and I hope I get some sleep tonight.
