  • Hi Canessa

    lol i think a few of us might be like that, i often look at smokers now and feel sorry for them, so tempting to go over and start preaching what they are doing to their health, but dont lol

    With the twitching legs, my sister who also packed up the same day as me went though this but it passed after a day. Not sure why your legs twitch but remember her saying that she felt like she wanted to stretch them all the time in preparation for a marathon lol



  • yes Canessa

    You will start to have more energy as you will start to feel better about yourself - snowball effect .

    Energy comes from within and if you are feeling good about something you have done you will feel far more spritely compared to a normal day!

    I also look at smokers and feel a tad sorry for them - education has taught me that they are caught in a loop and they dont even realise .

    they feed the addiction- feel normal- wears off - feed addiction- feel normal - wears off - feed addiction.

    this is what you are breaking free from!! this is all they are doing ...feeding an addiction . they arent enjoying anything , they arent making anything else better ...they are simply feeding an addiction.

  • yes there should be a folder for side affects,,since i stoped smoking i to have noticed people standing out side ,,pubs, shops. freazing there nuts off.makes no sence..just keep the faith tony

  • St. Vitus Dance ??

    Yet another giving up side effect - there should be a Folder on here just for all the crap that goes with quitting..

    I totally agree, I gave up on New years eve and have had the following symptoms ever since :


    Lack of sleep

    Little or no energy


    Hands shake constantly

    tunnel vision

    inability to concentrate

    anger attacks verging on Tourrettes


    High blood pressure (work that one out)



    Tinnitus (anybody else ?)

    A decent bought of flu would be a Godsend right now.


  • hi Bloke.

    crickey i thought i had it bad until i saw your list. tunnel vision. wow! if youve got heartburn and high blood pressure i reckon you must have been doing the gum. (you have to try not to chew the gum out just let it sit in your mouth. i used to rub it on my gums to get a try and get a hit from it.)

    anyway good luck fella. stick with it. and try and cut down on the gum

    i havent slept much either but enjoy feeling more alert in general
