Hi. I have 10 1/2 months quit and I’m still depressed. Could this still be the withdrawal????  I won’t smoke again but I sure wish I felt better. This is a miserable way to live. It’s not really living.

I have read a thread on here called "Tricky 8-11 months" so I think it does happen with people.  It is in the QUIT SUPPORT section.  Maybe check it out and see what they have to say.  Wishing you all the best.

Thanks, Mary. I feel alone too but I guess we aren’t. We’re here on this site together after all.

Talk to your doctor. It may be related to your quit, maybe not. I take Wellbutrin for depression and it is quite helpful.  I was depressed before I quit and I continue to take the Wellbutrin.  It might be worth a conversation with your doctor based on your description of how you feel.  

All the best

Hey Mary,  

i remember meeting you when you first started your quit.  Congratulations on 11 months smoke free!   I am 19 months Smoke free and I know how you are feeling.  So much better than the first day,first week and first year.   I have been away from the forum for awhile.  I rarely think of cigarettes anymore after 42 years quit!   It is a wonderful feeling.  I returned to the forum this past weekend and I am finding that I enjoy coming on here and seeing all of my fellow Nopers.  I hope you can see the clubhouse just down the road a bit!   Congratulations on tackling this addiction.  I hope to see you on here again very soon.  

All the best,

If you are on this forum you are never alone. I quit smoking after 42 years using this forum.  I have been smoke free for 19 months.  It is a miracle. I am finally free. However, I would never have succeeded without my fellow March 2018 Warriors and many others on this forum.   We did this together.  Stay on this forum.  You can do this!   Just never look back.   You do not want to redo that first day.  I wish you the best and hope to see you again soon.  I have been off the forum for awhile but I am going to try and get back on more often now.  Please keep reaching out.  Somebody will hopefully grab your hand and guide you to peace and freedom.
