Day 14 / 15

Hi everyone!

Made it to day 14 / 15 (not sure which one, last fag was 10pm 15/02).

Im feeling good, not many serious cravings happening but my skin..!!! OMG! :(

Ive never had the best skin even though im only 20 but its gone so bad, ive got spots appearing and they are all on my chin / below mouth and im developing dry skin patches. Ive bought spot (tea tree) and dry skin cream to hopefully clear it up.

Has any one else experienced this?

I have a theory that its all the bad stuff from smoking coming out of me, it has to come out somewhere so im guessing its coming out through my pores??!

Other than that im very positive and happy that im not smoking, AND... ive recruited my partner to the NO SMOKING world too! :D

  • u think thats bad wait till your ears turn back to front and your abdomen swells and nothing fits then youll know about quitting smoking, seriously all kinds of weirdness happens. but not as weird as pouring boiling tar into your lungs thats well weird.

    Mash x:cool:

  • dont worry you're not alone!

    im 33 years old and even my face has broken out in pimples since I gave up smoking, Im sure it will eventually clear up, I think its just from the changes our bodies are going through due to quitting (Im guessing) but Im sure it will get better, We just have to put up with it for now :)

  • I'm having the same problem, 48 years old and my face has erupted:mad:

    Drinking lots of water and using antiseptic cream and praying they'll vanish soon.

  • This is worrying - my skin has improved a lot - looks fresh and clear - am now concerned am going to wake up covered in zits!!!!!!!

    Try not to worry Dottie - different people - different reactions and all of the quitting side-effects seem to be temporary as the body adjusts!

    For example - I tend to get a little patch of ezema on my left hand - but now...boom - its gone!

  • Cheers guys :)

    Im using some nice face cream aswell and they are already clearing up! Yay :D

    Have a lovely weekend everyone!! xxx

  • Hey everyone,

    Wanted to share a helpful hint. Toxins are leaving through your pores (that's good). Try steaming your face to open them up then exfoliate, use a vitamin C serum or E oil, do this once or twice a week and you will definetly see a difference. :)
