I have to start off by saying the undiminished improvement in my breathing since I quit is unbelievable and no matter what I'm going through now it cannot be bad enough for me to think smoking is better, even just for one puff.
Going through a real bad bout of what I read is Quitter's Flu. Today is Day 8 for me of my new life, and I started getting sick very late on day 6. Tonsils are incredibly swollen, can't swallow, nasal drip so bad it feels like it's making my feet itch, migraines, ear ache, sleeplessness, constipation... to name but a few niggling little symptoms. After 20 years of 40+ a day, of course I did expect some severe reactions. Was just wondering though if anybody else is experiencing the same severity, I guess, and if there's any advice for it.
In spite of the discomfort I am absolutely revelling in every moment of freedom from my smoking torture though. This just cannot compare.
