Firstly, congrats to everyone else who is into month two :thumb:
I've always thought I would never be able to quit as I enjoyed it far too much, but I've completely surprised myself (and my family) and have found it relatively easy to stop. Admittedly, the smoking ban gave me a huge boost and incentive but it also gave me a date to build towards and stop on.
Unfortunately, I've been having major problems since with coughing...
When I was smoking, first thing in the morning, I would have a little cough and get some phlegm up which actually felt quite good in a weird kinda way; then that was it until the following morning. Now though, I'm coughing on and off most of the day but it's really dry and nothing comes up. I've even made my self sick through coughing where I've been straining so hard to clear my lungs to no avail.
I can understand that my body now has to clear all the crap that I've been pumping into it for the last 22 years, but I never expected it to be this rough!
What with this and putting on 6 kilos in weight in the last 5 weeks, I'm starting to think that maybe it wasn't such a good idea afterall - Okay, I'm still glad I gave up, but this is putting a damper on that thought.
Is it just me, or is this to be expected?
I guess I should go and see my doc really, but I thought I'd ask here first and see what others at my stage of giving up have found.
Thanks in advance...
