Ive replied to a few people but now I will tell you my story as it was a blur to me. I had to ask someone when I officially quit which was Nov 1 2015. I had surgery (my teeth removed all of them lie 10 I think) anyway I had implants put in but some were put where there was infection so this is what happened. I was in so much pain from the implant twisting trying to get put. I was non-stop in pain and couldnt swallow anything causing me not to be able to take my meds so I detoxed off all of them 100mil of Kadian (morphine) thyroid, cholesterol, clonidine, water pills, I was totally over medicated and stopped everything.
The pain was so bad from the implant it formed a big bubble and burst puss shooting out and the screw. It took like 2 weeks or more for it to finally come out, then a second started but I got to the surgeon first. I couldnt before because I really didnt know what was happening to me until the bubble happened and that was only days before the screw came out. Anyway I didnt notice a nicotine withdrawl until now my 2nd month and I have constant headaches, salivating which so far no-one has mentioned plus sweats, no sleep and anxiety.
I smoked 40 yrs, a pack or more a day never tried to quit before, now Im at my wits end, smoking didnt hurt like this does. Is there anyone out there who can tell me how long this will go on for, is it a delayed withdrawl and really my body thinks its been 4 weeks not 8 and this is normal. Im so confused.
