The first time I quit smoking I was 16, and I got SO depressed I almost dropped out of high school. I just dealt with it for months and finally I took medication but it didn't seem to help until I started smoking again 4 months later. Similar happened when I was 19 and I actually dropped out of college due to the depression and as soon as I smoked again and wasn't so depressed, I finished my degree.
Then I got pregnant at 22 and quit again. I got severely depressed. I was taking antidepressants and therapy after 5th month pregnancy but I ended up hospitalized twice because I wasn't eating or waking much. This time was also different because I did not do any nicotine replacement. I started smoking again when my son was a month old (outside, wash hands) and my depression mysteriously lifted by a HUGE margin.
How do I quit smoking or nicotine if every time I quit, I end up so depressed I can't function even on antideps??
