Just quit- got a cough

Hi my name is Nicky and I quit on 22nd jan. 8 days ago..... I quit by using the anti smoking tablet champnix, which I started taking a fortnight ago.

So far so good, apart from a dry tickly cough during the night.... read some posts which suggest this is quite normal which made me feel a bit better about it.

I intend to persevere with not smoking. No going back now.
