  • I'm in tears for one

  • It can be a difficult stage 4 weeks ur brain over thinking how to trick urself into having one. Have u got any nrt u can use? Nic gum works a treat and better than having a smoke 🚭

  • No I went cold turkey, it's subsiding slightly now, I think if I smoke I'll die.....

    I can't give up like this....  My breathing was crazy for a min for one.

  • Wow cold turkey 4 weeks is amazing uv done really well. Try sitting quietly and deep breathing. It will pass. Try getting some regular chewing gum to chomp on. 

    You do still get random and heavy cravings even after weeks and sometimes u think it will never end but u can get thru it. Stay strong and don't compromise with the cravings. Ur doing brilliantly 😀

  • Please please DON'T coz you WILL regret it😡 You have done amazingly well, 4 weeks cold turkey is FANTASTIC👏🏼👏🏼👍🏼👍🏼

    The nicotine has well and truly left your body so that little evil voice you hear is not worth listening to. Have a read of sweet angel and little red devil, it's a pinned post and will help you understand about this evil voice. Get out and walk if you can to get rid of it. As Andrew said, try breathing slowly to calm everything down coz it will pass. Hang on there and know that this is quite normal unfortunately😩 Do what ever it takes NOT to light up🚭🚭🚭🚭😊

  • That cheeky bugger nic will do whatever it can to get you back smoking..... Don't give in hun you are doing sooooo well, 4 weeks smoke and nic free is flippin awesome 😊 

    You know that smoking will only add to your anxiety..... It's playing tricks on your mind, go drink some water and see if that will help. Keep us nice and close AAG 😊

  • Hang in there deep breathing you have done fantastic and cold turkey too :) it will pass. Xx

  • I didn't smoke But my anxiety is super high today.....  Don't feel like I'm catching my breath......  Felt a little panicky earlier.....  I am still smoke free.....  Just been laying down most of the day.....  Can't wait for night time and bed....

  • Are you drinking lots of water? That helps a lot! Especially with the shortness of breath. Caffeine is bad for anxiety. I had to cut out all caffeine...I feel better now.

  • I quit caffeine over 6 weeks ago when I had my first attack, I tied anxiety attack to caffeine right off the bat, my second attack a month ago is what made me quit smoking.....  So bad I quit cold turkey.....

    Today anxiety is up but I'm hanging around the same level of axiety all day.....  Did my fourth session of CBT yesterday, one doc wanted to put me on paxil But the other doesn't want me to and to embrace the panic and anxiety so I can over come it.....  Its miserable but I'm managing....  

    My hope is that anxiety and panic disorder go away......  His book said it does eventually over time and with age.......  

    This fullness/burning sensation in my stomach is what's making it so bad.  I'm thinking it's tense muscles and I'm trying to just relax my stomach......  Don't wanna eat anything because I feel like it will make it worse....

    Hate this stuff so bad.....

  • I get that burning sensation too and it freaks me out. I had my first therapy today...so she warned me that I would probably feel some anxiety...and I did! But I just talk myself out of it and get on this site to talk to others. She encouraged me to stick with this site. Yes you will overcome this in time. It does get better...mine did for years...then I quit smoking and it came back.

  • Hey AAG good for you not giving in 😊👍

    Have you tried drinking milk for that burning sensation in your stomach? You may find it helps.... Indigestion and heart burn are common side effects.

    Have you also thought about drinking herbal tea when your feeling anxious, some people swear by it as it helps calm them... Just a thought😊 Hope you feel more like yourself tomorrow hun 😊🚭🚭🚭🚭

  • Have you thought about listening to soothing sounds when you feel anxious... You know like sounds of the sea or whale music?? 

    Sorry I'm having trouble sleeping and stuff is just popping in to my head!!🤕💤💤

  • Yes, I like the sound of the snow blowing from a snow storm.....  Makes me cover up and hunker down and fall asleep.  Just been a long day....  If it doesn't get better with treatment I'm going on Paxil....  I'll give it 12 weeks......

  • Thanks you all....  This is my go to when things get bad......  I hate panic, I Hate anxiety....  3 months ago I was normal guy working enjoying life now I'm a wreck....  This weekend was the closest I was to feeling normal, and yesterday and now this happens to me......  Trying to not focus on it.....

  • Honestly what you've discribed I had apart from being a guy!!! I'm back to my normal self has taken time but I'm there, when you feel something like this coming on go out walk, will hep honestly , at one point the only way I could stop this was grabbing my dog and going for a run, no I'm not a runner would never even run for a bus. But it's helped also with my fitness my lungs.😀
