Hello! this is first post on this forum , in fact, my first one on any kind of forum!
i quit cold turkey 14 days ago, as some sort of New year's resolution and it's been hell the last few days.
At first I was just cranky, but now I have these really bad stomach pains, a soar throat and severe insomnia. I had to take pills yesterday and the day before that so I can finally not fall asleep at 5 or 6 in the morning. instead i fell asleep at about 12 and kept waking up at 2, at 3 at 5 and now it's 6 and I can't go back to bed.
but the stomach is killing me! and the general weakness and also my head is hurting pretty bad.
I never thought it would be so hard. I am 22 and I smoked for 6 years, about a pack and half a day, sometimes more, on special occasions even 3. I used to smoke everywhere, at any times, especially on the street, while waiting for the bus, while working, while reading, while in bed, while at the table, while showering even.
i didn't use any medicine or patch or gum, just my sheer will and I'm not giving up! I already can smell the stench on smokers and around ashtrays and never want to go back to that. but I'm having a really hard time coping with the pains. (my uncle just quit the same way after 30 years and didn't feel a thing, so my family is quite confused about what i'm going through and...)
Any advice will help!
Have a wonderful smoke free day!
