Into The 4th Week


Never would have believed that I'd be saying that - 22 days and feeling over the moon on the one hand and physically crap on the other. But the physical symptoms are normal and will pass.

The real difference with this quit has been this forum and the support it gives. For anyone like me who's reading around for a little while before joining, just do it. You won't regret it.

Massive well done on coming into the 4th week! Your doing fabulously there. We're all proud of you!

Keep on reading posting and most importantly winning the battle against smelly stinky nicodemon!

We'll beat him together yeah! Thwack pow clobber kadoink...... take that!


Hey York, so chuffed for you mate...... nice one.

Hey York. Well done on getting to week 4. You should feel proud of yourself, it's a big achievement. In regards to the physical symptoms, I sympathise. I have never felt as bad as the the last few weeks. The only thing I can suggest is to hold on to the knowledge that it's temporary - your body is repairing years of damage. Keep at it!!!

'Welled Up - Sob'!!

Thanks all. Got a good cough going this morning and it feels like the chest is loosening up at last.

Lets all keep going, a day at a time.

I haven' had a cough yet - maybe its imminent!!

I haven't had a cough at all. Didn't have one before I quit and still haven't had one.

I haven't too sometimes I get a bit ov gunk but that's all..

Talking to my son-in-law today, who's been quit over a year, he got a productive cough around 6-8 weeks. I feel as if I really need to shift some gunk from the bottom of my chest so it was good that a little came up today.

My wife bought me a little steam inhalator with a mask (only £2.00 from Home Bargains) so I'll give it a go.

Thanks again to everyone.

Well done!

I have been quit nearly 8 months now and like Una, I didn't have a cough before and I haven't had one since I quit, so I dont think everyone will get this 'productive cough'. Well done on staying quit, you have done really well York:)
