    Hi Katie!! Well done you!! :D

    I am on day 19 today and I've had a tight chest on and off from day 1 so far.

    Like you I've been annoyed at times at feeling worse than I did when I smoked.. but I've leanrt that it's just the "getting worse before you get better" route that we have to follow. I think for me, the tight chest is anxiety.. I think I am subconsciously on edge wanting a cigarette all the time, even though I haven't had the "OMG I want a fag" feeling either,but I think where I'm constantly think about "not smoking, or all the bad things to do with smoking" it's subconsciously making my body "tighten" as I'm a bit het up about it but not really realising it, if any of that makes any sense?!.. and it would explain why the tight chest comes and goes.. just my theory - if it helps at all! :D

  • thank you for your replies.. went to the dr today about my legs and she thinks its my lower back so being refferred to the spe******t at the hospital.. she said its prob where i have been over doing it at the gym, thing is my back dont hurt.. and i feel ten years younger.. i have channelled everything into getting fit it stops me thinking about not smoking... so just have to wait an see wot the hospital say now.. bloody typical eh.. give up smoking .. hey ho here we go the problems begin so many people i know say they have had more wrong with them since quitting than when they smoked... but its not enuff for me to smoke again i feel too good ...so take wot comes i spose, years of abusing our bodies i should imagine we wont escape everything eh!

    well done and gl e1
