Ok folks - 18 days and counting. Made it through the first three days. Made it through HELL week. Made it through week two and I am staring down week THREE...  and I am grouchy, irritated, hungry, annoyed, bored and generally a total mess!


Small irritations like messes in the house send me into a flying rage! I can't sit still for 5 minutes! I eat every bag of chips that crosses my path! I am so bored I could cry! I am wondering what is wrong with me! I feel alternately exhausted and that I could run a marathon!


I thought that some of these things would subside by now. I am reading other blogs and websites and thankfully there are people out there that are saying that it is still hard a few weeks in.. 


When does it get easier? The actual cravings for a cig/vape have subsided dramatically - I only even think about it 3 - 4 times a day now, which is great. However, it is replaced with an insane restlessness that I can't quite itch. 


When will this insane irritation finally go away??
