4 days in and confused and dizzy.

Today is day four without a smoke. The headache has ease down but my eye sight is still kind of blurry. Also it feels like my reactions are a little slow at times. Real hard to focus. I'm glad the head ache gave me a break though.

  • Hiya Z and welcome to quit support๐Ÿ˜Š

    Well done on making it to day 4, great achievement so well done to you๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    Day 4 is really a tough one and your body is craving which causes headaches๐Ÿ˜ฉ This can make it difficult to concentrate but if ya can manage to drink lots of water, it will help to flush the toxins out and rehydrate you too.

    May I ask if you're using NRT or cold turkey as this will help us to help you

  • ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks and hello! I stopped cold turkey. Yesterday my head felt so heavy near the front, I thought I was going to faint. Now it just feels like a balloon. I'm going to grab some water and fruit juice from the store while I'm out. I mainly stopped smoking because I suffer from panic attacks. I figure the smoking was making it worst.

  • Yep you're right, smoking does make it worse๐Ÿ˜ฉ cold turkey is brilliant as it gets it over and done with but it all hits you at once๐Ÿ˜ฑ hang tight coz it's a roller coaster of a journey and it will all be worth it๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Hi znelson and welcome to quit support ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    Take a browse through the pinned posts to the right of the screen as there is a lot of info on the symptoms of recovery.

    I have a calmness that I never had as a smoker ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€, so quitting just may help with panic attacks, it will definitely help with your future health ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    All the very best on your quit journey โ˜˜โ˜˜

  • Your in the right place Znelson, I wreckon for every symptom there's someone in this Community who identifies, meaning never alone no more in our action to be free from smoking. thanks for posting up, speak soon

  • Great to be here! I was so happy when I came across the board. Really thought I was going at this the wrong way of something. The symptoms can be scary.

  • Hi Znelson,

    Ya , I as well found the withdrawal symptoms frightening.... The senior quit people on this site reassured me what I was experiencing was normal..... If it wasn't for them I would have lit up out of anxiety...... I had aching teeth, nausea, exhaustion, back pain, headaches ..... I felt so sick...... It's all been worth it.... Use our mantra...... Not One Puff Ever... And keep this site close ..

  • Tunnel vision is what I meant by the blurry vision guys... Yeah I got these bursts of energy at 4am in the morning. When I did finally calm down, it felt like all the feeling in my body left. So being to calm scared me. Lol. No teeth aches though. The headaches and dizziness was killer for me. I wonder if I will need glasses now.

  • Hiya z there is a poll on here about all the symptoms some of us have had throughout our journeys it's worth looking at ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Well done on cold turkey, we have a lot of quitters who gave up that way too and have been/still are, really successful ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿšญ๐Ÿšญ๐Ÿšญ๐Ÿšญ๐Ÿšญ๐Ÿšญ

  • Quick question! Are you guys using your mobile phones or desktops? I'm using my cell, and am trying to navigate around. Any tips?

  • Hiya Z, it's harder to see on the mobile phone and it might be a good idea to get an eye test, at least you'll know if ya need glasses.

    I find I can do more on my iPad than the phone and it's easier to get around the posts, but then maybe that's just me๐Ÿ™„

    Although I can see your a 4 day winner on all of em, good on ya๐Ÿค—

  • Hang in their --weird things come and go--I had headaches every am for weeks--Now its more eating like Im starved and anxiety off and on--My left eye keeps twitching--I don't kno--can I blame everything on my quit?? Probably not!!! But it is life changing Hang in there --it will get so you don't really want one but your body does--and thats when you really begin to do battle and want to win--and get well- never to return-Babysteps and be kind to yourself--This is a tough addiction MadameT xxx
