25 days!

Am so happy i have reached this far! and well done to everyone else!

Whats dragging me down a bit at the moment tho is the symptoms of stopping that I hadn't bargained on!

I'm getting a bit of shortness of breath at times, kinda of like i need to cough but cant, i believe this is normal, just wondered if anyone else is struggling with this or did and how long it lasts....or anyone any tips on anything to take/do that could help?

I've heard of it too but not hugely common I'd also check with the doctor to be on the safe side.

BTW congrats on 25 days quit, that's quite an achievement.

All the best



Hi MissBrew,

Well done on your 25 days.

I've heard of the shortness of breath, but like Nic said you should go get it checked out by the doc




I am also on 25 days today :) and have been getting some chest twinges and shortness of breath, I went to see the doc and she said it was probably to do with the quit so don't worry too much but i would still go and get checked out if I was you. Good luck with keeping off the stinky ciggies, not long now and we can count in months :D


I started doing a bit more coughing last night and today which seems to have shifted something a bit *nice* but still a bit gaspy, gonna go to docs next week and just check.

Yep the month marks coming, well done u 2! see you in the week 4 postings soon! ;)


Hi Miss Brew :D

25 days is great well done you, the chest thing is probably through quitting but you should get it checked out to be sure
