Hi and welcome to the forum Shaz

Well done on your quit! You're doing brilliantly. :)

Coughing up phlegm is a normal withdrawal symptom of quitting (look up 'quitters flu' and read up on some of the old posts on the forum re quitting symptoms for more information) and I expect the chest pain is probably strained muscles from the coughing but if it doesn't ease off soon it would be a good idea to speak to your GP just to make certain there is nothing else going on and to put your mind at rest.


Hay and a very warm welcome:)

I'm early in my quit, so don't know to much re withdrawal .
