Day 2 and feeling okay

Hi all I am new here

I somehow got through day1, some really bad cravings but now on with day 2.

Getting a bit of a cough. Is that normal?

Feel okay so far, champix has really helped with the needing to smoke. I just keep thinking how good it will be not to be stinking of smoke anymore. One thing I noticed this morning my hair still smelt fresh from the day before :)

Good work Pandaspot

Well done for getting through the first and already feeling the benefits... nice smelling hair, breath, clothes are all just the beginning.

I think the cough is fairly normal. As smokers we stored up lots of rubbish in our lungs and now you have stopped they want to clear out the junk. They are starting to repair themselves already... even if it doesn't feel that way.

I started jogging to work before I quit and it is quite astonishing how quickly it gets easier to run harder and breathe easier once you stop polluting your precious lungs.

Hope you have a great day



Well done Pandaspot :)

As Clo said your lungs are already starting to clear all the muck from smoking which is a good sign :D Just focus on all the positive things you have already noticed since you stopped when you get a crave ;)
