Quit Smoking Help:
Are you desperate to quit smoking yet find that somehow, no matter what you try, you just can’t break the habit?
If you struggle with anxiety then smoking may have become a sort of crutch that you lean on when you need to try and feel calmer. You may smoke when stressed, worried or just to get a few minutes to yourself a few times a day.
Yet smoking can just add to your stress and anxiety levels. You may feel anxious about the future health impacts and whether you will be around to share the time with loved ones. You may find that you get anxious if you are in a situation where you can’t smoke and worry because that crutch isn’t there.
And of course, the sneaking about and planning your day around cigarettes can also add to the pot of stress and anxiety.
So how can you successfully quit smoking without adding to your anxiety?
Insomnia and Anxiety – How To Sleep Better:
Is anxiety driving your insomnia and keeping you awake at night? Or maybe you worry about the prospect of going to bed and all those hours you’ll be lying awake and wondering why? And could it be that when you try to go to sleep, or if you wake up in the early hours, all those thoughts swirl around your mind and you can’t shut them out?
Insomnia and anxiety are often closely linked and often become so interconnected that you can no longer tell which is leading to which.
Many people I help find that their insomnia creeps in first and before they know it they start to dread those hours of lying awake at night. Other clients find that their anxiety has spread into their nights and they lie awake with their mind still going in overdrive over all the worst case scenarios.
And of course, the more tired you feel from insomnia and anxiety, the harder it becomes to find the physical and mental energy to finally break that pattern.
