I have just found this site as i have been looking for some advice for some time.
I am 10 weeks smokefree today and i have been using patches and gum.
It was my first real attempt at trying to stop although i had been wanting to stop for some time. I was a 30 aday smoker and have been for 15 years and although i havent found stopping easy. It isnt half as difficult as i expected it to be as i thought it would be torture but its been ok.
However since stopping i just feel physically crap and when i read other peoples experiences they say they feel so much better but each week i am getting more ailments.
I have had a chest infection, 2 colds, constipation, mouth ulcers, bleeding gums, sore throats and i just have no energy at all i feel totally wiped out and just want to sleep.
I was wondering if anyone else has had any similar experiences to me and if so any advice would be helpful.
I am drinking lots of water and have started to exercise 2/3 days a week .
