Hello. I've quit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> for 3 weeks now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> 32 years of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span>. I am using the patch and my doctor put me on zyban when I saw her sept 5 because I couldn't stop crying. The crying has gotten better I feel terrible. I think I'm obsessed with my breathing to the point where I feel it all the time. my chest feels tight. I feel myself inhaling all the time. I've been to the emergency room twice now in two weeks. Chest films taken. They put me on high does prednisone for.
That was Whyquit d o t c o m.
Ask her for help to manage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting. I quit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> almost 40 years, used the patch. I used it for almost a year. I just kept cutting the patch in half, then fourths, eights, and so on......I still miss them at times, but have not had a bad cold since quitting. Best of luck.
It is common to get some of these symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span>. Your lungs are expelling the residue that has built up over time. The nose bleeds may be related to blood pressure, inflammation in the nose, an upper respiratory infection or to spasms of coughing. The aching and low grade fever are probably not related and may be related to an infection which is aggravating all of the other things you have described. quitting smoking was a wonderful and positive decision.
Bad temper, angry, headaches, nausea, irritibaility and similar are common. These are, of course, symptoms of depression too but the difference is that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> these effects abate quickly after a couple of weeks. Not so with depression and it does not come and go with one's decision to smoke or not to smoke. That is simply an infividual's reading of what is going on for them. By the way, I smoked for 35 years and gave it up 2.5 years ago with no support. Just decided to stop.
I found out I was pregnant as a smoker and smoked for about 3 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> because just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting cold turkey is hard. But after three days I felt so guilty and like I was killing my baby I just stopped. I bought a bunch of candy to suck on and stopped hanging around the smoke crowd and going on "breaks" at work. It was weird st first but k care about my baby too much to be are kless.
He took a lot longer but now my baby girl is almost here. I plan on sticking with not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> anymore but I feel I'm going to slip up. I was a smoker for 16 years. Started when I was 16.I have faith you'll be able to quit.
Can anyone describe in as much detail as possible what kind of pain or symptoms (if any) they felt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span>? I have felt this gnawing pain and sometimes sharp pain like being poked with a needle in my stomach somewhere during the time I quit smoking. I can't tell if it is from quitting or a symptom of something else. I know I should go see a doctor but I am so low on money w/ no insurance. Please help. Thanks in advance.
But, it could also just be a combination of your cough hanging on and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> has aggravated it. I waited to start <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing up phlegm when I quit, but it never happened, even though I had a serious smokers cough. It is common for an increase in appetite, however, I have been fortunate that this didn't happen to me. Just the fact you have lost your appetite tells me that MAYBE you still have some sort of lung infection. Please try to force yourself to eat a little more.
Could the pain in the solar plexus related to the weight-gain, exercise, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing and not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span>? I have also had a LOT of acid reflux lately and am under a HUGE amount of stress...I wonder if I have an ulcer too? Anyhow, any feedback would be great!
I quit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> 3 months ago, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> 38 years of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span>. I still have a clear productive cough. I think it may be chronic bronchitis. my question is - does chronic bronchitis ever improve or go away or do have this cough to look forward to forever?
Is all of these symptoms normal for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span>? I havent started the horrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing stage yet but my lungs do feel like stuff is loosening in them. Sort of like bronchitis. Does anyone know when that will start as well?
Well anyways im getting a bad cough and its causing a sore throat. I read online that this is caused by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> cause ur body is healing and what not. Well just curious if any other former smokers went through this and how long it lasted. Does cough med help in this situation? I cant sleep its so bad. coughing up phlegm every few minutes its soo annoying especially since i just got over a cold... I only have 4 wks left til my c section and just want to feel better by then.
A few of my friends who had quit a while back warned me that I would be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing horribly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> I quit. Now I am a little worried because I haven't coughed period. Is something wrong with me because I don't cough any? I have noticed many differences since I quit..food tastes better, I can smell things more clearly but no coughing.
im a 13 year old kid but i think that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> is the most important thing to do. well thank you for your time.
i have no doubt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> will be easier than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting coke, but it is going to be tough. does anyone know how long that really bad cravings are for when you first quit smoking.
Things that have helped me is quitting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> for five five years almost everyday I quit cold turkey. I thought I would never quit smoking. I also quit smoking cigs which is partly Why I have headaches, I hope. I have had headaches for almost a full month now, and do not know Why. I hope and pray there is nothing wrong with me because it would ruin me, I just hope I can bounce back somehow. You are not alone man....
I am using Nicoderm CQ step 2. I cut down my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> to 10 cigs per day prior to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting (i smoked a pack a day before that) and then used step 2 instead of one (well because I was smoking 10 or less a day) anyways I need some support. The first week I cheated and would take 2-3 drags a day off a smoke while on the patch. I know your not suppose to do that (am I in danger now?) then the last 2 weeks have been the first 2 weeks EVER in my life I have not touched a cig.
i developed alergies this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> 4 years ago but now i seem to be coughing up yellow phlegm and wheezing .. wha t could be possible causes?
Hi, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> is very unhealthy. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting is the single most effective step that you can take that will improve your chances of living a healthy life. You have described symptoms that seem to suggest a lung infection. Please see a chest physician, who will probably send your sputum for testing, orger a chest X Ray, and start a course of antibiotics. Please ensure that you dont ever start smoking again. Seek professional help if needed.
The first point is to clearly establish if your friend coughed up blood, or vomited blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> a bout of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing. Often patients cannot definitely distinguish between the two. The fact that the quantity was a "lot" makes me suspect that the latter was the case. Vomiting blood may be related to ulcers, gastritis, alcohol, anxiety etc. coughing a lot of blood is seen in some cases of lung cancer, although it is more usual to have blood-streaked sputum.
On 09th June i quit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span>. Initially for 2-3 weeks there was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing with phlegm coming out. Now i am in 8th week after quit smoking. Now days i have throat pain while swallow and rarely phlegm coming out (no cough). Along with that slight cold (but not continuous). There is slight body pain from on yesterday. Before i used to breath through mouth. But from on last couple of weeks i trying to practice to breath through nose. Yesterday i found some while particle on palatine tonsil.
about 7 months ago I quit, and I havent coughed all that much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting. didnt really have much in the way of withdraw symptoms. Its like I never smoked at all. Shouldnt I be coughing something up or something? or are my lungs not working properly?
i am a smoker and ive been smoking for about 6 months. i never cough while im <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> or afterwards. i can go hours with out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing, but when i do cough it only lasts a few seconds. ive tried robutusin and that didnt work. my breathing is normal there is no tightness in my chest im not weezing and im able to still work out and take deep breaths and i dont have asthma. i talked to a pharmacist and he said it should go away especially since i dont have any of those symptoms.
The good news, I have been cigarette-free for three months, the bad news is that I've clearly done some serious damage. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> the cough left over from my cold grew worse and I could feel my sinuses draining in the form of post-nasal drip. I had heard such things can be expected after quitting, but to be on the safe side, saw a doctor who confirmed post-nasal drip, said my chest sounded clear and that it was probably allergy-related, and suggested I try taking an antihistamine.
I am excited that I have quit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> for 4 months now. However, prior to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting I never really had trouble breathing. When I first quit I felt great. Now all of sudden I am wheezing and I feel like I can't get enought air. my chest is extremely heavy. Why is this happening? Will it go away? Why did it start after I quit? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/287896'>Difficulty with breathing and gasping for breath</a>.
I've always been in pretty good health, although I do occasionally have anxiety attacks. I've attempted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>quit</span>ting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> a few times and always go back, however, I have cut down to two cigarettes a day in the last week. Since then, I have been having trouble sleeping, I'm coughing or clearning my throat what seems like continously, I feel like I can't catch my breath, have some chest pain and it's all making me so nervous that I feel like I'm constantly on the brink of an anxiety attack.
have you ever seen a crowded room of people <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>smoking</span> and its just all smoke and people <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>ing, now just picture that was your baby.. its in a small room filling with smoke trying to get that breath of fresh air but cant until your done smoking that cigarette. When my habits I ended up buying a big bag of suckers so whenever I wanted to smoke a took a sucker out it helped a lot and my son being a big motivation for me, but when he came out seeing him happy and healthy made it soo worth it.
