New Home ??? Day 8

:confused: Not sure where to post this as although i am on day 8 i haven't done my full 2 weeks yet but am sure if it not in the right place some kind person will move it for me lol .

Well anyway day 8 of my quit and so far it is ok had a couple of moments when nic was trying to make me give in has not worked though:D

there is no way i want to have to start my quit all over again , so no matter how much i think i want to be reunited with nic i will just keep telling myself that this feeling will pass in a couple of mins or so .

i do have a question though it's a bit embarrising : has anybody else experienced bad wind :o???

Really hoping that at least someone else has as it is so embarrasing .

    You are in the right place, having completed the 1st week you are in the 2nd!

    Being a bloke, flatulence is a matter of personal pride rather than an embarrassment :p

    I know that it is often a side effect of NRT if you are using it, and quitting smoking has effects on the digestive system so it makes sense that it could be that, but if so it will settle down.

    In the meantime you may wish to use the stairs rather than taking lifts.:D

    All the best

    The Truth About Nicotine Withdrawal:

    One of the keys to quitting smoking is acknowledging that smoking cigarettes is an addiction that can be managed and overcome. One of the main reasons people give up quitting is because they find the withdrawal symptoms so fierce and unexpected. Don’t worry these symptoms are actually good news, signs that your body is purging itself of all the harmful chemicals cigarettes left in your body.

    Most people do not experience all of the symptoms below:

    Dizziness Increased oxygen levels in blood and blood pressure lowering to normal Be careful, take precautions and don’t work to hard

    1 - 5 days

    Coughing, nose running The body’s respiratory system begins to clean itself Drink lots of fluids

    1 – 5 days

    Sore throat The clearing away of nicotine and tar and the growth of new tissue Suck sweets, eat honey or anything else that will soothe your throat

    1 – 5 days

    Tight chest The coughing causes the chest muscles to get sore Try relaxation and deep breathing exercises

    1 – 2 weeks

    Flatulence and constipation Temporary slowing of intestinal movement Eat lots of fibre and drink lots of fluids

    1 – 2 weeks

    Headaches Increased blood flow (with more oxygen) to the back of the brain. Drink lots of fluids and do relaxation exercises

    2 – 4 weeks

    Irritability Your body is desperate for nicotine Relaxation exercises

    2 – 4 weeks

    Reduced concentration Increased blood flow and oxygen to brain and lack of stimulation from nicotine Don’t over exert yourself.

    2 – 4 weeks

    Fatigue Without nicotine your metabolic rate drops down to normal Don’t over exert yourself. This feeling will go away in a few weeks

    As you can see it is listed at 1-2 weeks!
