Hello everyone, well I have finally quit, I have been threatening to for about 2 years I was a smoker for 36 years, I smoked roll ups, probably about 25/30 a day. I recently went to the Dr with a few health issues and they did blood tests, it came back that I have too many red blood cells, I was advised that this is probably due to smoking and starving my blood of oxygen ... (Scary!) ... I have now been quit for 11 days, I'm using patches, 16 hour, 25mg. I have been up and down really, on my second day I got a really bad cold, felt really ill, flu like for a few days but that has now gone. also been very emotional, could cry at the drop of a hat ....I feel so lost, I don't know what to do with myself, I have changed my routine so much that I just don't know where I am lol...I really want to stay quit, I have to stay quit and I will stay quit....but I am not finding it easy at all....I'm so pleased to have found this site so I can have a rant and get things off my chest....Hope not to get on everyone's nerves lol.
