Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 25 People

    I smoked Ciggies for 7 years,

    I quit 2 months ago, I feel like I am just NOW starting to experience relief from constant anger and irritability. Did the emotional withdrawal last this this long for anyone else?? I feel terrible for my fiancé as he has had to deal with beast I have become!
