This is my 3rd or 4th attempt to quit and I am doing the best I have ever done. I am currently on day 31 (using nicotine lozenges 1mg) and have not had a single puff. For the first 3 weeks I felt pretty good. I had more energy, was more productive and generally felt good about myself. I started getting back into exercising and am going swimming regularly now. Now I feel dreadful...much worse than when I did smoke.
I have horrible skin, it's dry and flaky and I have a lot of spots coming up daily on my face (unusual for me, I am 36). My stomach is regularly a little upset, I am suffering from unusually bad gas :o, I have aches and pains and an on-off cold that seems to come on every time I lie down in bed causing me to snore like a bull all night because of my blocked nose (my partner doesn't like this, :)).
I guess my question is..is this normal? Will it pass? I really hope so because it's getting me down a little now.
Thanks for reading,
