I think its quite normal PrincessM. It was for me. Takes time as your metabolism slow's for a while. I was a bit muddle headed too for a while. Hang in there girl, all will come right, Promise. xxx :)

I spent a couple of weeks feeling like i was walking through glue, but stay with it. I think it may be that you've given your body a chance to heal and it's detoxing. This seems to be common with everyone who stops. Look out though, after week 3 I found loads of energy and can't sit still now! ;)

(I was going to say can't sit on my ass but the men of this foum would be distracted from the topic to spend the next day and a half talking about all things 'arse') :p

Although i just found out that the pollen count has risen early this year.. so it may be hayfever. Aaghhhhhhhh last thing i needed , hayfever as well as being tired for nicotine cleansing.. lol completely exhausted.

I'm not giving in though..

Hey, Princess, it will get better.

Try doing a wee bit extra excercise every day, even a 30 minute walk, so long as it's more than you would have done when you were still smoking. That'll help get your metablolic rate back up, and your energy with also increase.

Stick in there - it is so worth it :D

Keep at it Princess!

I, too, felt like a wet tea towel for the first few weeks. But also knew that there was some healing going on underneath and the only way is ........down - in - and through .....to the clear air the other side.

IT DOES GET BETTER AND IT WILL FOR YOU
