So it's kind of weird, but my depression has actually been better since I quit smoking. I'm laughing some, even during hard times. My anxiety is through the roof but the depression was one of the hardest things I was dealing with. I had been on antidepressants for years until my doctor took me off of them right before I quit and then I got sick, well I had pretty bad depression then I quit smoking and since then I've actually handled things a lot better than I used to even on antidepressants. Who knew? I also haven't been fighting with family as much, I'm calmer is what they say. 


Now if the anxiety would quit, that'd be perfect. Anyone else's moods actually get better after quitting, or is that just me?
