Hi all, I had a cold a couple weeks ag which ended up going on my chest! Well I ended up in hospital for a couple of nights as I was having difficulty breathing, well it turned out I had a chest and lung infection. The co codamol saved me from pneumonia, so I was lucky. Any ways I am ok now and it has been 14 days today that I have not smoked.

I have been ok but the last couple of days I have been really snappy my poor husband has lost his head a few times now. I don't remember being like this the last time I gave up, lets hope it doesn't last.

Hi Vikki and a warm welcome to quit support

Unfortunately being snappy is quite a common part of quitting...Try and make it up to your hubby when you are not quite so snappy :D :D

Take a read of some of the pinned posts on the right as there is a wealth of info -everything quitting

we have a wee mantra we use - NOPE - Not One Puff Ever - sounds easy :D :D

Does this make your quit date January 5th ??

All the very best of luck on your quit journey :) :)



Yes the 5th was my quit date and thank you


Hiya Vicky and a warm welcome to quit support😊

Sorry to hear you've been so unwell but congratulations on 2 weeks quit, awesome

Don't worry snappy is very normal at this stage of your quit and most of us have been like that😩

The good news is it will pass and remember youve been through a lot being in hospital. Have a look at the breathing techniques on the right under pinned posts as this will help. Good luck and stay close to this site as it makes a big difference🍀


Thank you
