Hi there, so glad to see you posting and still not smoking!!! I remember when you first quit and all the anxiety you were feeling. I hope that's gotten better. I had stopped smoking in July, but had a relapse in Oct, so my new quit date is Nov27th so I'm one month quit today. I'm sorry to hear about the break-in....how terrifying! Good for you for not smoking Jizi, I'm sure that was really hard not to giving in at a time like that. You're doing so well, keep hanging in there.
I have been looking at things to help me quit smoking. Smoking aid sites have given me the first feeling of calm I have had all week from the panic of just THINKING about quitting. I buy cheap smokes and my aid can't cost very much more than my habit. I will starve lol I smoke 1 carton-1 1/2 cartons a week for 20-30 dollars Canadian. I do not have many dollars more than 30 a week to help me quit, but to go cold turkey means I will go insane. I am not kidding.

I have had panic attacks before, not from quitting smoking but if you want something to help with the anxiety you should try Valerian Root, available in most chemists or health food shops.
When you quit smoking did the anxiety attacks end? I smoke, and never associated that with my anxiety....since quitting smoking is so stressful in the first place, it seems like that would make anxiety worse, rather than make it better.
Has anyone else have this when trying to quit or anxiety just for smoking period? Any suggestions would be appreciated. My husband thinks I am just going nuts.

Whenever I smoke pot, I get anxiety attacks. I had been smoking it regularly for about 2 years, until last november when they started. I will take a hit, and wait for a little bit. 2-3 minutes after, I get this HORRIBLE feeling in the center of my chest. It feels like someone is holding a gun to my head and counting down until when they shoot me. Then my heart rates spikes up, and starts POUNDING. I can feel it racing, and pounding in my chest, and my throat.
I have been smoking this for 1 week ,and after 2 days of smoking I have begun feeling anxiety, restlesness, insomnia, lak of apetite, and those symptoms agravated to the point of having bizzare thoughts, the fear that I am going crazy,extreme anxiety(with mild derealization sensations) an allergie on my neck and three sleepless nights,so after 7 days of smoking it I stopped. Before this I have had 2 rough years with a lot of personal dissapoiments, bad sleep at night , stress at work, worring .
Sure, there are times I get a real craving for a cigarette but the rest of the day I don't have cravings, I just have this sense that nothing is fun, nothing has any purpose or value and I jsut want to close my eyes and get away from it all . I do have anxiety disorder but have not had any panic attacks since I quit smoking. The anxiety is not here right now, just a sense of uselessness about everything, that's why I wonder if it's depression instead.

I suffer from anxiety/ panic attacks, and my doctor said that smoking and caffiene can cause anxiety to come on. she told me to stop both, i cut out the caffiene but can't seem to stop smoking, I can't smoke during an attack but after it passes it seems to calm, though it does speed up ur heart rate. Its just one of those things that doesn't seem to make sence. I always tell my self that i'm gonig to stop smoking during an attack but always seem to light up after to calm my nerves.

I have been on xanax for as long as I can remember, without I have the worse anxiety attacks on a daily basis, The anxiety is so bad I don't want to get out of bed socialize or leave the house, with the xanax I am able to live a normal life, I don't want to be by myself and have no life.
I knew that I had wasted my money. I quit for about a day and started smoking again. I know people say that you can not get addicted to pot but I do not know for some reason I knew I was. It was weird; I had never wanted something so bad. However five months ago I decided that enough was enough I knew I needed to quit. I could not afford my habit anymore. I was spending all my money on pot rather than rent, food or anything else that is of prime importance. So I decided to quit.
yep i think it causes anxiety attacks. i would really try to quit if i were u. good luck, when i quit, and the wds were not to bad.
I smoked religiously everyday for almost 10 years. About three years before I quit I developed anxiety and suffered daily from heightened symptoms, and refused to believe the weed was making me worse. My disorder got so out of control (became housebound and paniced daily) and my excess adrenaline levels were so elevated that just one puff would send me to bed with a panic attack. I have been clean now for four years and would not ever think of touching the stuff again.
I managed to get rid of all my panic attacks thanks to learning more about it and not feeling scared of it. I dont mind answering anyones question if you have. So far i quit smoking few month ago, My alcohol consumption has went down to almost one beer in 4 to 5 days. I lead a healthy life and healthy food habits, I am 186 cm and 73kg. The only thing that i am still facing is high level of stress sometimes at work.
and that he can't do anything for me til I quit smoking. I was so miserable, I quit smoking cold turkey and it didn't occur to me til I started school for MA that tachychardia is literally a "fast heart rate." Thank God for the internet!! That's the only place I seem to get any info at all.
Hi Doc, Thanks for listening. Ok, i'm 30 years old, for the last 10 years ive experimented with almost every party drug under the sun, ive stopped them about a year ago now, but continue to smoke cigarettes (about 15 a day). Im always stressed about work, money, girlfriend and quiting smoking. i drink 1 coffee and day and eat just the 'normal' things.
I did experience panic attacks about 7 years ago but went to therapy and learned to deal with the family issues i ignored as a child and young adult. I am 27 and just quit smoking three months ago.When I was 21 I was put on prevacid for acid reflux and took it for one year. After that my symptoms were fine up until this past year/ My doctor then put me on protonix to see if that would help the somewhat "spasms" in my esophagus.
To TheExModel.....Congratulations on your quit!! 53 days...that's AWESOME!! I also had panic attacks when I quit. I think it took over a month to feel decent. Good Job!!!!! : ) Leigh.....You can do this honey, just hang in there. The cravings are awful, but if you can MAKE YOURSELF think of something else the craving will pass before you know it. Come on here and post and like kathyjo said, by the time your done the craving will be gone. Walking has helped me a lot!
I quit all that, started exercising, lost weight, quit drinking so much, quit smoking, and I'm doing fine. Occasionally I'll get a panic attack but I've worked really hard to learn coping skills, and I can deter the panic attack using these skills. There was a big difference between panic attacks and my heart attack, and my lifestyle caused my heart attack, not the panic attacks. Find a doctor you respect, follow the advice, and be good to yourself.
Before I got pregnant I took hydroxyzne when needed for panic attacks. I have PTSD, OCD, generalized and social anxiety.
He didn't want to upset me by telling me he went back to smoking, but I told him that by lying to me and saying he quit is more upsetting than hearing he is still smoking. His parents both had cancer - mouth/ throat and both due to smoking. His father died from it and thank God his mother was cured. So thats why for the last 20 years I have been hoping he would quit and up until now, I thought he did. Did anyone have a real hard time giving up cigarettes and knew that they needed extra help.
