  • I did have some wierd symptoms a few weeks ago.... it was very odd. I started coughing for no reason, and other peoples smoke made me feel very ill indeed.

    I never felt like I had a heavy chest though, and certainly never felt like I had smoked.

    No matter what though, not smoking today is what matters.

  • I found that I was OK in month 4, but I have hear of others having something similar, and I've found this post


    Hi, I would always suggest that you see a doctor if you anyway worried about your health.

    TBH I was quite scared when I was around 3 months into my quit, I have been going to the gym and thought that I was pretty healthy - then all of a sudden I couldn't walk up the gym stairs let alone complete the circuit. It was quite scary - and - although the doctor I saw was not much help - I felt all the better in my head for going, he did sound my chest and said it was all clear - he prescribed me with a asthma inhalalor - saying if would not be a permenant thing, explaining something about the tubes had narrowed and would re-oppen eventually?????? - am much better now - BUT - not yet as fit as I woukld have hoped.



    But equally Jim could well be right and it might just be a cough :D

  • It has almost been 4 months for me, and I do sometimes get a slight tight chest . I have just gotten over a cough.

    Hang in there. Over the past week I have had my strongest 'cravings' since week one. I have even been dreaming of smoking.

  • Thankfully I've had no coughs, though I do feel like I've had just about every other side-effect of quitting ...

    Strongest cravings - weird isn't it - the icky threes on month 3 - I had a blip at Day 100 ....

    Smoking dreams - very very common, apparently - someone on here (Dubbs?) said they look forward to them - or enjoy them at least - because that's the only way they get to smoke these days - which is one way of looking at it.

    Must say, my first smoking dream I woke up in a cold sweat, confused - and checked my fingers for a smouldering nub ... the fact that the deam involved my ex-wife divorced over 15 years previously wasn't as important as checking whether I'd actually smoked or not !


    The dreaming of smoking is the weirdest and most unexpected thing that I have encountered. Last night I dreamt that I asked a complete stranger for one drag of their cigarette. The night before I had a dream that I found an unopened pack of cigarettes...I don't mind the dreams. After all, they are just dreams.

  • Very strong urges too

    You'll see from my other postsrecently I've just managed the 100 day milestone.

    I haven't caved in at all but this week has been murder - I'm crunching my way through more sweets than since week 2.

    Got that sensation in my cheeks that I associate with - need a fag.

    Very Bizarre !

  • thanks for the replies. maybe i just have a cough. its just odd cos iv never "just" had a cough before. its always been related to smoking!

    still got the weird chesty feeling today but thankfully the random cravings seem to have subsided. today is another day :)

  • Well I'm just pleased to see that a post about a heavy chest hasn't led to an obvious boob reference, until now that is :D:D

  • Laura,

    not being funny, but, how can you say that if you've smoked since the age of 12?

    you could say you've never "just" done anything - that anything has always been related to smoking.

    ... I've never "just" cut my toenails before - it's always been because I was a smoker...

    Just being a devil's advocate!



    i totally do not get what you are getting at there....toenails??? is that a bit of a fetish coming out there..??

    just let it out. we wont judge i promise!

  • i still dont see the point.

    im clearly having a blonde moment.

    what i was saying was that any cough iv ever had previously was a smokers cough or a cough made a lot worse due to smoking

    therefore apart from before the age of 12, i have never had "just" a cough - if u get me!?

  • Hoovering the cat?! :eek:

  • how do you know, if you've always been a smoker?

    i just do !!!!
