I'm on day four of non smoking after smoking solidly since the age of 17 (I am now 35), 20 a day without fail, even when ill. I've got patches AND gum, but the gum makes my chest feel really tight every time I chew it, plus a bit sicky. Is this normal? Have been having headaches etc, was expecting to feel brilliant but I am assuming it's just withdrawal symptoms. Anyway, I'm on day 4, had three large glasses of wine last night and had only minor cravings when wafts of smoke floated in the pub door. Feel pretty positive, although realise it's only the start of a long, hard slog!
