DAY 5. Messed up sleeping pattern and weird dreams.

Hi Guys,

DAY 05.

Negative Thoughts:

Had a rough night last night. Went to bed around 1:30am and got to sleep soon after.

Then woke up from a weird dream around 2:30am but got back to sleep.

But then had constant crazy, very vivid dreams and woke up at 4:30am from a rough one (some dude was about to stab me with a butcher knife in a restaurant).

I couldn’t get back to sleep after that even after a warm milk with a shot of Scoth thrown in.

I managed to get back to sleep at 7:15am just before my alarm went off for 7:30am.

I felt like crap with the sweats etc.

I decided I wasn’t fit to work this week and went to the Doctor today for a Cert.

I’m off now until Monday next.

Positive thoughts:

I now feel a little more relaxed knowing I can concentrate on me this week.

I had a serious urge to break my fast today after going to the doctor’s but said NO. Still off the Doobies. 😉

My appetite is better today. (I had forgotten to mention that it was screwed and that I was only eating once a day since quitting.)

I’ve eaten twice today. Yummy!

I will write more tomorrow instead.



PS: Thank again Joe and Katie. I feel as if I am being a little selfish here and only writing about myself and not supporting you guys. Probably just in my head.

    *sings* "Paranoia, paranoia everybody's coming to get me…. "
    LOL Sorry, couldn't help myself (top song)!

    Don't be silly, you are an awesome support!
    I find just reading the updates from you guys helps me greatly – I think it's just knowing I'm not alone in all of this… ya know!? (bar Chris obviously 😉 )

    Anywhoo – it's great that you have taken a bit of extra time for yourself!!
    I was going to suggest it the other day – but can't remember (If I ever knew) what you do and sometimes that's just not an option… Good for you!! (y) <— hope pic thing works!

    It's also awesome that your appetite is coming back!!
    You should find soon – if not already – that your taste buds will come back and everything tastes better!! This is so far my favourite part about quitting!!

    Keep doing what you are doing mate!!!

    So sorry about the dreams – but they will subside Mr. Richie! It's good that your appetite is coming back too – I'm thinking that may help with your sleeping patterns as well.

    It's good that you are focusing on YOU – but it is in your head if you think you are being selfish, because you're being a great support to both Katie and I – and I'm also an inspiration to many who have not yet chimed in.

    Keep up the great work!
