29 days quit from a 2 pack a day habit. Been smoking 48 years. Still having hoarseness no cough yet. The last 2 days have been really hard. A couple of people have told me that they went thru a bad time after about a month out. Has anyone had these problems. I am on the patch 21 mg. I am not worried I will start smoking again, it just seems harder now than at the start. Also how long for the hoarseness Saw my GP after about 2 weeks. He couldn't see anything but said I may need to go to a throat MD to look at the vocal cords. Any one else have this?
