First post here! I was just wondering if it anyone else has ever felt depressed months later? I quit smoking a little over 3 months ago, and I feel sad all the time. Funny but I'm not craving cigarettes, I dno't even really think about smoking ... I just feel like I have this void in my life and I'm not sure how to feel it. I've started running, I go to the gym all the time, I go to work and do my job, I read, I watch baseball. But all the things in my life that used to be so happy just feel like I'm going through the motions now. Could this be quitting smoking, or something more serious? I don't know how to explain it other than a hollow, empty feeling, adn I've never felt anything like this before. I've looked up depression, and whilte some of them fit, not very many do, so I don't feel like it's necessarily depression.
Just looking I guess for a bit of reassurance that this too shall pass. I smoked for 16 years, and at 30 that was more than half my life. Like I said, I don't want to smoke anymore, I just feel like "something" is missing. Is this normal?
