Hey all, first post here. Glad to find the site to know there are lots of us going through all these weird and strange experiences.
I kind of feel a little miffed that no one told us about these withdrawal symptoms we would have to go through when quitting smoking. You hear all the reasons why we should quit, but not what we might go through if we quit! OUCH! We have to find out the hard way by wondering what on earth is happening to our bodies and if we have got some fatal illness!..what makes it worse is the anxiety that goes with it when we are uneducated as to what is happening.
So although you wouldn't want to wish these withdrawals symptoms on anyone.. its still reassuring to know others are going through the same thing.
Today feels like a bit of a relapse for me... I woke up with hurting lungs and now have a horrible headache again...Its the worse day I have had for a while.. and its day 31? When does this end? lol
I've not had the horrible cough yet, but I have had blocked sinuses for over a month now *sigh.... When I read about all the things that smoking prevented us from getting, I wonder why do we bother to stop? I know.. I don't want to smoke anymore either... but these withdrawals are awful and I feel a little angry that those who tells us to quit give us no warnings about these withdrawals. Insomnia is trying to rear its ugly head too! wow! What next? lol
Anyway, as I said.. it is reassuring to know that were not alone in this and we can suffer together.. lol.. its just wanting to know is all of this normal? blocked sinuses.. bad headaches...pains in the lungs (back and chest).. insomnia...Acid Reflux. wow! What fun
