My quitting has been quite stuttered recently, I quit a few months back but then started again when I went through some really difficult stuff.
I have quit again (for good this time!) but am experiencing all sorts of horrendous side-effects! (Poor concentration/head-fuzz, aches, itching, nausea, bowel issues, depression, tiredness/lethargy, new moles, etc.)
I was led to believe that all of this was a result of nicotine withdrawal, yet I am using the strongest nicotine patches available!
Does anybody know if the information that we have available from official websites and other places is deliberately inaccurate?
NRT seems to only quell the cravings, irritability and hot & cold spells that I have experienced when going cold-turkey in the past yet all other symptoms are still attributed to nicotine withdrawal, which it seems clear to me that they are not!
Am I the only person who believes that there needs to be much clearer information on what happens when you quit smoking?
