Hi everyone. I am new to this forum so excuse me if I don't get it right!! I stopped smoking 2 weeks ago and I am feeling mainly positive and upbeat about it. I had smoked for 38 years and had tried to stop several times. This time felt different. My husband stopped 6 months ago and although he didn't nag me at all, I really wanted to be free of the habit. I set myself a day to quit and then chucked out all the paraph****ia-rolling machine baccy papers and ashtrays-all went in the bin never to return. So, now I am a non-smoker! It feels good not to have to look for somewherea to smoke and not have to constantly thing about smoking! Actually, it has been quite easy to do and I am only getting occasional cravings now. I do have one worry though and I am wondering if anyone else gets this symptom. I feel really tired and a bit spaced out. From reading some websites, it seems that it is a symptom of cessation of nicotine but should only last about a week. I am still feeling it at 2 weeks-is this normal? Can anyone put my mind at rest on this one please? Many thanks, Maz xx
