I quit smoking on 11th Sept 2012.First to kick in was dizziness and light headedness followed by cold shivers alternating with hot flashes(where Id sweat and pant) and also got stomach cramps and feelings of nausea.I felt so bad and weird I couldnt face going out or meeting/talking to people so locked myself away and slept and slept and slept and slept! Today is day 6. The cravings have gone from a gut wrenching,soul shattering urgency to a faint whisper that lasts about a second(about 10 times a day) but the weird thing is I have gone off of COFFEE.I have been a coffee freak for years drinking on average 8 mugs a day and now Ive got no interest in it at all.Is it anything to do with the INE? -Nicot INE Caffe INE ? Weird. Anyway the withdrawals have been so bad this time that its made me realise the true extent of the poisons in smoking and also Ive come so far through hell I really dont want to lapse as I dont think I could face going through it again. I smoked for 40years maybe thats why its hit me bad.Good Forum by the way.
