It's just so horrid these early stages of a quit, but you have come so far👏

The symptoms do suggest it's your body getting rid of the nastys. I did not have that issue, but think many peeps on here do.

Keep going nearly a week now that's something amazing, isn't it?

Doing so wel☺️


thank you all for your replies esp max,that info was an eye opener thank you all xx


Hope you soon come out the other side DG :)

I developed the most awful hacking & tickly cough- drove me potty for the first few weeks- along with a tight chest exactly the way you feel when you have a cold coming on. It's most irritating but it doesn't last long honestly.

You still haven't told us why your name is Dyson Girl! :D
