day two as an ex smoker is almost over and I'm really trying to stick to this quit attempt.
I have smoked for about 10 years (30 y/o female) 10 cigs a day roughly and have attempted to stop over 7 times but have always failed within the 1st week.
I used to be quite active even while smoking, but haven't really exercised for about 2 years.
I decided the day of my last cig that I would start a jogging routine - I have been twice now (with a day break between) and am slightly worried, after a minute or so of jogging my chest tightens up painfully and am literally fighting for breath. It was so bad today that I actually couldn't even continue and returned home immediately, I was able to run and not experience the level of extreme discomfort whilst I was smoking.
I know if I am unable to exercise i'll probably fail as I'm already having crazy cravings and terrible bloating - was hoping the jogging would help lift my mood and maybe help with my weight, sorry about the question I'm just feeling really right now and dreading even attempting another short walk/ jog combo.....
have I already messed up my lungs so much that i need to see my gp or is this normal after giving up the ddreaded weed?????
