No More.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?

If its too much trouble to post roll call, you could always fuck off.

I quit 24 hours ago. I feel really antsy and like I'm in a mental fog... I know it's going to get better but as of right now "fuuuuu this".

I'm going to beat this addiction! Can someone just hold me and tell me it's going to get better?

*Chewie Hug*
Welcome Tiz! If the hug from Chewie wasn't enough, consider posting up with these guys: http://forum.killthecan.org/topic/30424041/85/#new. Post a promise there not to use nicotine for one day. Keep that promise. Repeat.

They might hug you, or put a boot up your ass depending on what the situation calls for, but if you hold up your end of the bargain, they will help keep you quit through anything that comes up.

And yes, it will get better!

I quit almost 8 years ago. I am experiencing something strange lately. Cravings worse than when I first quit. Talking with my wife she agrees that I never got over the physical effects of quitting. I am angrier, more stressed, easier to set off, etc, and over the last 2 months it is becoming exponentially worse. I feel like a powder keg just waiting to explode.

There is a possibility of it being linked to ADHD-C. I am hanging on by a thread but I actually have a can sitting in my kitchen. Not sure I am wanting to stay quit as I know that flood of nicotine will do what it did for 25 years. Soothe the beast. At least until I can get to a doctor and get diagnosed and start treatment.

Has anyone that quit long term dealt with anything like this? I have started binge eating along with all these other problems. Fake dip, seeds, nothing works to settle me down. Any ADHD sufferers out that have experienced anything like this? Considering trying vaping, e cigs, or gum/patches to get a hit without the poison that is in tobacco, but I am feeling like I am losing control.

Flush that can down the toilet! Immediately.

I canít speak to your symptoms, I havenít been Quit that long and it sounds unusual that withdrawal and cravings would still affect you. Have you been using some other form of nicotine or other drug?

You might want to speak with a specialist or even a psychologist to explore what might be triggering your response.

I do know that the can on that table doesnít contain the answers and it wonít make your life any better. If after 8 years Quit you are short tempered and irritable, hell maybe youíre just an irritable guy with a short temper! All opening that can will do, is make you a short tempered guy who just threw away 8 years of quit.

Its amazing the tricky nic bitch still playing mind games after 8 years quit. Dont fall for it, its a trick. Flush that shit is right. 8 years and you bought a can? Cmon bro.

How about try walking, working out, doing push ups, cleaning the garage, painting the bathroom, ANYTHING other than adding another problem to your life by opening that can, e-cigging, patch, etc.... DONT DO IT
