Stop smoking 12 days ago and nothing seems to have changed...when should I notice?

Never coughed before and still no cough, even though my chest has fluid in it...stopped 12 days ago of not smoking (had gotten the lozenges in case I needed them--found out after getting them they have aspartame--which allergic to) of which done allot of nibbling on dry cereal, twizzlers, hard candy & such.......just can't really tell any difference & actually feel like missing something and not sure what it is....has anyone else felt the same way & about how long before this feeling stops.......

Hi Terri, I'm so glad you made the decision to quit smoking.It will help you in a huge way, even if you don't see immediate results. Trying to occupy your time & your health by walking daily would be advantageous to you health wise. Stick to it & in time you'll feel better. Praying for you, Terri from Massachusetts, USA.

I'm down to three a day or a bit more. It's hard, but this diagnosis makes me hate cigarettes more every day. I wish you luck. I see it's been a while since you posted. How are you doing now?
