I'm not to sure how long it's been since I quit, probably just over 1 week. I'm currently using the Nicorete quick mist spray.
Anyway, I had the Flu about 2 and a half weeks ago, it was really bad, and after the Flu I had this horrible dry sort of cough. It was persistent. It what made me quick in the first place. The cough is getting better, but I am told it can last 8 weeks.
I woke up this morning though and when I breathed deeply it hurt my lungs. I can't explain the feeling, like cement at the bottom of my lungs. But, within 15 minutes it's gone and my lungs feel normal. I fell asleep this afternoon, woke up and the same thing.
I have no idea if it has anything to do with alcohol. Last night I had 3 pints of beer. First time I've drank in a while.
Has anyone experienced this when quitting?
