I am quitting smoking cold turkey. I'm 38 years old. I just started day 3. I feel exhausted and my reflection in the mirror is freaking me out! I look like a zombie my eyes are so heavy and I have pale skin and dark puffy circles. Even my kids are asking are you okay mommy? I feel very tired as I tossed and turned all night and I woke with nausea as well and sneezing. I feel lethargic and light headed. No I don't believe it is a flu virus.
One of my main focus goals to encourage me to quit was gaining weight, healthy appetite, being able to be strong enough to lift weights and looking healthier and losing the pale skin and eye circles so this is all very discouraging.
Can everyone give me practical tips to push through this stage asap and cope with the physical symptoms. When did things start to turn around for you and did you look like death at the beginning and how long till that turned into a healthier glow with less bags? 😊 Thank you everyone
