Stopped on 3rd October, I had pneumonia and just stopped, but is has not been easy. I have been browsing these boards since then , but I didnt think it would last so I didnt post, but now I feel more confident.
I am also withdrawing off diazepam, which to be honest is much worse than the cigarette withdrawal. Because of the 2 things together, the anxiety has been unbearable at times, but I have not had a cigarette.
I thought by now that my lung capacity would have started to improve, but although my breathing at rest is easier, my breathing excercising is no better. This could also be from the pneumonia and/ or the diazepam withdrawal, so it may take some time.
The good thing is I dont want to smoke and have become very determined not to.
Good luck to everyone else.
