My Day 5 concern

Morning colleagues :)

I am still on the patches, still feel fine, except I have started coughing up some horrendous animals!!

I assume this is normal? Im guessing its my body ridding all the nasty crap?

I will go and play squash as usual tonight and see if this non smoking is making a difference yet :) Will also help to start clearing out them poor wind bags I have been abusing!

I'm sure the coughing thing is quite normal, and after running around playing squash you might cough just a little bit more. Think of it as your body cleansing itself of some of the crap that shouldn't be there. It's a good thing. If it starts concerning you at all though, a quick visit to the docs can put your mind to rest.

Some of the website links on members posts refer to symptoms of quitting, and I can remember reading something on one of those about coughing (sorry, can't remember which one). This isn't terribly helpful is it, hopefully someone with more knowledge can give you more precise website directions?

Well done on day 5, the week is nearly upon you. Enjoy your game :)

Hi MrV :D

Day 5 well done almost a full week now

The coughing is normal and is just your lungs having a spring clean to get rid of the gunge from smoking OK

My most worrying symptom seems to be an eye tick/spasm in my left eye. apparently it's not noticable, but I feel like Inspector Dreyfuss from the Pink Panther films.

I'm sure it's related to oxygen/nervous system/circulation. It's just a bit anoying is all!

Chrissy, I can assure you I've been called worse in my time! Seems to have calmed down a bit...just the pins and needles and the horrors coming out of my nose to deal with now!!!

Hi Munter,

You may find your symptoms are stress related. I get pins and needles on the right had side of my face and a twitch in my eye when stressed - darn nuisance but no one notices.

Thanks for that Jamangie and Jo. I think it might be both the nerve endings/oxygen and general stress. I might have just about told my boss to feck off when he asked me to do some project this afternoon also. Freedom is definately not free..I may need a new job soon if I go on like this!!
