Hi all! I am a 36 yr old female who quit smoking Aug 13th 2015 for the second time in one yr lol. I don't know why I did this to myself again but the withdrawal symptoms suck! I seem to get everyone of them. Now my chest hurts and I'm starting to cough. Two days ago I woke up dizzy and rushed myself to the hospital where they did a head cat scan and chest x-rays. The most they came up with was I had very full sinuses. I know there is light at the end of the tunnel but sheesh! Welp good luck all and I promise this time I'm staying c iggy clean!

Welcome and congrats for quitting cigarettes👏 I'm in wicked withdrawal as well.... (Day 14 in a couple hours) .....My mental attitude is so positive but I am really feeling ill...... I'm experiencing exhaustion, chest and back pain, body aches, aching teeth, headaches, blurry vision. Hahaha. Need I go on........ But you know what......... Aside from all those withdrawal affects..... I know they will pass and the people on this website are just awesome support........ Please hang in there.....everyone eventually benefits and feels great........ I'm just one puff away from a pack a day so I take one hour at a time.......... The quote on this site is NOPE.........NOT ONE PUFF EVER💐🇨🇦

God poor you, I also had all of this every illness and more and it's only been at the 7 months point I can say I'm starting to feel like me again .

I then saw how bad smoking was to make you feel ill from not doing it.

Every day or in mycase months I got better. Beginning of the year I was at the dr once a week with some withdrawal symptom, however since August I haven't been 😜 Just stick with it really does get better.
