The Quitters Flu.

Man with Quitters FluHave you recently quit smoking and now find yourself feeling sick? You may be suffering from the quitters flu; a number of symptoms that combine in such a manner they  resemble a cold or flu like illness. Most smokers who quit will experience it.




 

What are the Quitters Flu Symptoms?

 
As mentioned above, quitters flu symptoms resemble those that tend to accompany the common cold or flu. These can be headaches, flashes of hot and cold, chest congestion, cough, sore throat and both nasal and sinus congestion.

The moment you quit smoking your body begins to heal and as a result, these physical symptoms will tend to occur. It is a normal part of the process, though discussing such symptoms with your doctor is still a good idea, even if for peace of mind and reassurance.

Perhaps the most notable of these flu like symptoms are those associated with the respiratory system.

The lungs contain small hair like structures called cilia. (They look more like sea anemones.) These cilia, naturally sweep particles out of the wind pipe to be expelled by coughing.

Tobacco smoke coats the lungs with tar and disrupts this process by preventing the cilia from working. When you quit smoking, the tar begins to break down and the cilia once again start cleaning.

Quitters will likely notice a blackish – brown and often speckled phlegm as a result. Given the amount of rubbish that builds up in a smokers lungs, this can be quiet extreme and often takes time to settle down.

The ability to breath easier and maintain a greater state of healthiness, more than make up for the unpleasantness of quitters flu. The symptoms of quitters flu should also start to settle after a few weeks.
 

How long does Quitters Flu Last?

 
The length of time you may suffer quitters flu symptoms is variable. Some ex smokers may only suffer the symptoms for a number of days. For others it can last for months. My own quitters flu lasted on and off for several months, though only extreme for short periods of time, most notably over the first couple of weeks.

Over the longer term, I found that exercise enhanced some of the symptoms, but also helped clear out my lungs. If the symptoms feel quite serious or last for more than a few days at a time, I would suggest speaking to a doctor as you may actually have a genuine cold or flu!

What I personally find interesting, is that since quitting smoking two years ago, I have only suffered a genuine cold (virus) twice, and suffered for no longer than 72 hours. Prior to quitting, I would suffer two or three colds a year and they would last for around two weeks!

 

Tips for Managing the Quitters Flu.

 

Rest During the Early Stages.

Quitters flu is at its worst in the early days of a quit smoking campaign. It may help to rest and be as comfortable as possible, while allowing the healing process to happen. Consider drinking warm herbal teas to aid relaxation and relieve some of the symptoms.

Eat Quality Foods and Micro Nutrients.

The body gets the majority of nutrients needed to heal, from the foods we eat. If these foods are of a high quality and have sound  nutritional value, the more building blocks your body will have to aid the process. Consider eating more fresh fruit and vegetables and less processed and over cooked foods.

When You Feel Ready, Get Some Exercise.

Exercise promotes healthy lung function and helps accelerates the cleaning process. Consider starting with a daily, fast paced, five minute walk around the block.

  1. If I was to offer any advice, it’s to just quit, cold turkey. People that are cutting down to “One smoke a day” or “X puffs a day”, all you’re doing is prolonging the withdrawal process. You’re extending your misery. Until you actually quit, you aren’t helping the process by cutting down to a marginal amount of nicotine, you’re hurting it.
    You need to completely rid your body of the nicotine to get past the addiction, and that requires not imbibing it at all.

    It’s not going to be easy, it’s going to be miserable, but this is the truth.
    Day 24

    • Oh wow. OK from one Panda to another…I totally hear you. I have smoked for 25 Years. I think cutting down is helping but it gives me an out to have one. I never make new year’s resolutions but this year I really wanted to once and for all just quit. So new year’s Eve I have my last one because I now just don’t smoke cigarettes. I have cravings and I have a sore throat and I feel like poop…..But I don’t smoke anymore. 🐼

      • I quit smoking New Years eve after 25 years of smoking, and let me tell you I was certain I had the flu. I slept for two days and had some of the weirdest dreams. Intense craving for a cigarette. Anxiety is an understatement. I don’t know if I can go on. I went to work last night and snapped at a customer. Having cold and hot flashes, and dizziness. Is this really worth it. If it doesn’t go away I am afraid I am going to cave in and have a cigarette.

        • Just keep going! You have come so far already. I also quit on New Years Eve, after 10 years of smoking. It has been a struggle every day, and the “quitters flu” is setting in, but it will be worth it. In a month or so you wont feel the cravings as strongly. The other studies I have read on the subject suggest that the 3rd and 4th days are the worst. Just make it another 5 minutes until you reach the end of the day. You can do this!

        • My husband and I stopped smoking on January 2 in the evening (7:30pm to be exact). We had that date picked out for about 3 weeks prior, so we knew it was coming. I have been experiencing cold/flu symptoms (extreme cough, stuffy nose, congestion, sore throat), but my husband has not. I’m actually going to the doctor today because I don’t know if it’s “quitters flu,” I think it may be the real deal. Anyway, something that helped me with quitting cold turkey was listening to a free app called “Jason Vale’s Stop Smoking in 2 Hours.” You listen to his lecture for 2 hours for your conscious mind, and then you listen to a 20 minute talk while you are falling asleep. I swear, I haven’t craved any cigarettes and I haven’t been irritable at all since I listened to that. He also has morning videos that you will watch every morning (they are about 5-10 minutes), and he also has SOS videos (for if you are craving a cigarette). I smoked for about 10 years — 1.5 packs every day, sometimes 2 packs every day.

          Just remember, everything you are experiencing with craving a cigarette is mental. YOU don’t want one… IT wants one. Don’t feed IT. You are stronger than that. Your cold/flu symptoms will eventually go away. Being free of cigarettes is totally worth it. Why become frustrated and “pout” about something that you don’t even want? If you wanted it, then you wouldn’t have posted a blog entry on this site, and you certainly wouldn’t have stopped smoking to begin with. It just takes time. Try out the app that helped me. It’s totally free, and it helped. I finally feel free. I am no longer a slave to cigarettes!

        • If you can afford to, use a stop smoking aid. My last cigarette was January 2nd. The 3rd and 4th days were definitely the worst but I got through them. I still have some cravings but it is now tolerable with the patch.

          • In my case, I agree with Megan. I was a 40 year smoker and tried everything with mixed results. My sister died of lung cancer two weeks ago. It was the most horrible death I have ever witnessed. I’m on day ten smoke free, but don’t think I could function in the working world without some help.

      • I also had my last puff on new years eve… I FEEL GOOD, but also terrible I have a sore throat and feel nauseated when I get off work. But I’m so happy I finally did.

      • Congratulations on quitting! I, too, quit New Years Day this year. Day 6 and I’m still going. I seem to have quitters flu but I will get through it. The physical addiction part wasn’t that bad for me to get over. For me, the hardest part is getting past the involuntary times I would smoke. For example, I smoke the most when sitting at my computer. Often times I would light up without even realizing it. Now, I still find myself involuntarily reaching for a cigarette that isn’t there. I finally catch myself and it’s made me realize just how often I used to do that. Keep your head up and stay strong! We can do this!

        • Amy Hager says:

          Congrats to all of us who have stopped smoking.Today is day 6 for me and i feel like im going crazy. I have called the smokers hot line. I cant sleep ..im doing it cold turkey so i dont want to use patches or medicine now. Im just taking it second by second. Thanks Amy Hager

          • Hi Amy
            I quit on New Years Eve too and thought I was the only one who couldn’t sleep! I’ve been having 2 to 3 hours a night if I’m lucky and that been from 4 till 7 am. This morning I started with flu, dizzy, bad cough and going hot and cold. I’ve been on the sofa all day and am dreading going to bed. I’m very proud of myself though and no way I’m caving. All the best.

          • Hi..wat also helps with the chest pains is a good steam..i use the sauna at gym or u can use euculyptus in the sink and cover head with a towel..it helps with that choking feel wen u simply cant breathe..hooe it helps and keep it up

      • I quit for almost a year in August of 2015. I started up again in June 2016 and just quit again this past New Years Eve. It’s been 18 days and I have felt like total crap ever since. I just keep telling myself it is all worth it and it will pass. After 21 days all the toxins are gone from your body and your lungs start to heal fast. It truly is worth it and I hope each and every one of you keep going( including myself). I have had insomnia, dreams, muscle aches, sore throat, stiff neck, cough, and it hurts when I breath in. It will pass soon. I don’t need the extra weight I will put on but I can work on that after I get this under control. Well good luck to all of you. Just think of how happy and healthy you and your lungs will be👍🏻😊

    • Hi..i agree..i went cold turkey..got severe chest infection..doc gve me antibiotic to help the process..i feel healthier..my skin is glowing..my food tastes amazing
      Day29

    • I quit on 1/1/17! I’m on my 23rd or 24th day of not smoking cold turkey and I have been ever so sick! My main thing is I can’t stop coughing. I had a cold before quitting so now it feels I’ve been sick since the middle of December. I’ve been taking everything trying to get better, but nothing helps. Antibiotics, musinex, some prescription cold medicine I can’t pronounce, steroids, Advil, cough drops, emergency immune, B12, and even hot toddies. Nothing seems to be killing it. I was exercising about 3 or 4 times a day. This past week I’ve done nothing cause I’ve been so sick. A 20 minute trip to Walmart leaves me a little clammy with a coughing fit along with anything involving a bit of effort such as house work for more than an hour. I’ve barely been able to do laundry and just pick up. I’m so tired of it!! I blow my nose a lot that’s about it besides the cough. I cough so much I throw up. I’m tired of coughing. My lungs feel bruised from the inside and it’s like someone punches me every time I cough. I actually seize up on my sides from even trying to wipe my ass. And on top of it all I’ve had 3 kids and I’m turning 40 this year so my bladder is not so good. So when I cough I pee. I feel like a dog marking his territory around the house just cleaner. More so an old woman who has to wear something equalvilent to depends as to not soil everything. I don’t have cravings anymore. That ended like week 2. Just someone please tell me this shit will eventually end so I feel like I can have a life now???

  2. We are 3 in a house all packing up smoking myself and hubby smoked 40 years nowaking champix and 36 days smoke free but hubby complaining of body aches body shakes head aches and dry mouth ! Me I am fine a bit snappy but I’m as is my son but he smoked 5 years and not as many a day

    • Congrats on 36 days! I’m right with you & on day 33. I also quit with Chantix. I took the mess for two months and stopped taking it a week ago. I have to say I’ve had a very easy time quitting with the medication. So much better than my cold turkey quit.(which lasted 14 months.) I felt great while I was taking Chantix but ever since I stopped taking it I’ve had horrible depression & the corners of my mouth cracked! Ouch. I guess I’m dehydrated? And the depression has been soul crushing/life ending. What in the world is up with that?! I called my Dr. I’m still alive & still not smoking and that’s important. Im finally coming out of the depression after a week, yay! It worked like a charm but I should have kept taking it forever cause the aftermath is bad. Best of luck to all three of you!

      • Maverik Eugene says:

        Real happy for you guys!I should have took Chantex,but I had to manly and just quit.Hurting so bad at times I want to cry!Never going back to smoking,no way in hades can i endure this again.Coffe,tea,and jacuzzi seem too help with the pain though.Good luck to you guys!!

      • Jason M Smith says:

        My doc and I have a plan to slowly reduce the Chantix. She advised me to not “just stop taking the Chantix”.

      • My doctor would not give me Chantix because I am being medicated for depression. So, I went cold turkey. Four days now and don’t know if I can hold on. Sick.

        • Ssillyme – Hold On – It’s painful & if you’re anything like me, you have the filthy Quitters Flu in your throat (which seriously burns) and the depression (that you think its not worth it) – but ultimately, if you get through day 4, it will lead to a new day and life. 5 days for me at the moment. Keep going.

        • Go for it!! I am on day 29 and it gets better..exercise also helps keep the weight off..please dont start..its bot worth it…

  3. How’s everyone doing today?

  4. Almost 5 months for me, quit cold turkey. Never ever never want to go through that again! Worst 5 months of my life!! Good luck everyone!

  5. Sheikmohideen says:

    From 48 hour after quitting smoking feel chest tight ,feels unhealthy, feels some breath problem ,dry mouth as you all discussed.from now after 72 hours feeling some comfortable with breath. I smoked for 12 years 5 to 10 per day. I desided to stop smoking. Successfully i completed 3 and 1/2 days. Please motivate and help me to complete the task.
    Sheik mohideen

    • Im on day 12- not too many ahead of you! It does get easier. Also smoked for 12 years. Im going through the quitters flu right now… sore throat, congestion… but i am SO proud of myself. Every awful thing ive experienced while going through this process is totally worth not smoking… it really is an awful habit! Keep up the great work. Stay positive and stay motivated!

    • CJerry bomb says:

      I’m 9 days smoke free started taking chantit back in October and just stopped taking them December 13 and smoked my last cigarette that day. I’m not having to many side effects but this is a horrible journey to take but one I do welcome, I’ve smoked for 40 years and got up to smoking 2 packs a day so I’m grateful for others sharing their testaments because it helps me get through another day of being nicotine free. I say to you all let’s finish this nicotine free journey together because we can and will do it

    • I am on day 11…you can do this!!! I have had a sore throat, coughing up phlegm like crazy and have a stuffy nose and stuffed up head. I also am a teacher and I keep loosing my voice when talking/yelling at kids. I try to cough to clear my throats, but it isn’t working very well. I feel like this quitters flu is never going to end! I am not going back though. I smoked for 5 years about 10 cigarettes a day. I quit cold turkey and I feel like that is the best way!! Good luck everyone!! Just take 1 day at a time!!!

  6. i m 16 days smoke free after i smoked for 9 years..i m suffuring heaving coughing only in morning about 3-4 hours,wen i breathe weezing sound comes that also happens only in morning wen i wake up..then i m completely ok throughout the day..is this the withdrawal symptom or anything serious has happend…i m too much worried…

  7. Hi i havent completely given up. I had a cold last week so didnt smoke for 2 days. Now im just on and off but havent smoked today at all. But have been bringing up alot of tar and crap of my chest. But have a awful sore throat. It kills when i swallow. Hopefully this will go soon and that will be the end of it.

  8. Day 1: played fufa all dayto avoid smoke.
    Day 2 and 3: headache
    Day 4: no cravings or any side effects
    Day 5 : light cough
    Day 6: Today, extreme cough (feels like smoking is better than cough)

  9. Hailey Parker says:

    I am currently on day 7 of my Cold Turkey quit. My flu started on Christmas Eve. I can’t believe the amount of tar I’m hacking up. Almost 7 years of smoking and I can’t wait for this flu to be over and to be done with tobacco for good.

    • Keep up the the good work I’m on day 13 myself. Today I was able to smell and taste again for a short period of time

  10. Day 5 of no smoking. Have had serious quitters flu for the past two days. The worst part is the sore joints and headaches. Strangely, seeing all the crud that I’m coughing up makes me feel like I’m doing a good job. I am already noticing my distaste for smokers. My boyfriend smokes still and I could hardly talk to him right after he had a cigarette. I hope this flu ends soon so I can get on enjoying my new smoke free life. I am excited. Get pumped for our new smoke free life!!! Woot woot, happy New Year everyone!

  11. Day 6!

  12. I am getting ready to quit “again”. I was smoke free for 4 months before my pasted at the end of July. I fell apart and started in again. Nicotine has always been my go to when stressed. I’m still grieving but I feel stronger now. I’m 50 soon to be 51. Its time to do this. I was so happy being smoke free. I have to admit I’m scared to do this again.

  13. I’m going to use the Nictiene patch. I’m scared but I have been down this road before. I have been smoking on and off for years and I want to quit.

  14. Day 3, I feel like I’m dying. I have pretty existing panic disorder, and my body is just going nuts. I don’t feel better and I start to question whether or not this was a good idea. I also have asthma, plus my kids are around and I want to be healthy and live a productive life for them. Just have off and on chest pain, coughing that is getting worse, hit and cold flashes, palpitations. Tell me it gets better.

    • Candie, it DOES get better. It’s definitely tougher to quit with an underlying panic disorder but it can be done. The worst of the physical symptoms last for approximately 3 days. The psychological withdrawal symptoms can hang around for a looong time. Talk to your doctor, look for a local support group, anything that will help. Your lungs will thank you (smoking is most assuredly an asthma trigger) and your children will thank you.

  15. Hi guys, I got a severe flu 3 days ago and I decided to quit smoking too along with it. It’s a bit …too much but I can blame all the effects on the flu itself.
    What I have is dizziness, runny nose, sore throat and severe severe cough, some muscle pain, chest paint… I will get over it!
    I’ve been smoking for 15 years 10-20/day.

  16. Collins John says:

    My wife gave me an ultimatum a week ago: Quit smoking or I’m leaving you. I obviously quit – since then I haven’t looked back and feel great. You might think her approach was too harsh, but I was smoking a lot and she didn’t want to see me die of a horrible disease or cancer.

    Bye bye cigarettes! Hello life!

  17. I smoked for 14 years. I tried many ways to quit, slow down etc.. One day, I went in for oral surgery, during that time period I was anticipating hypnosis to stop smoking (although I was far from having the money). What I did instead, was find a prerecorded, stop smoking hypnosis on YouTube, and played it as soon as i got home, while still feeling the anesthetics. I woke up feeling as though i never smoked! I had no desire, no craving whatsoever. I did use a patch for 1 week due to rageing withdrawing, but I’m still going strong without smoking. However being in my 3erd week, I think I am feeling this ‘quitter’s flu’

  18. I’m on day 3. I quit just before midnight New Year’s day. I’m in the U.S. so it’s still January 3rd for me. The horrors of “quitter’s flu” shared here have my nerves jangled. I’m snuffly and congested with a mild cough so far. I’m 44 years old and smoked for 16 years though (minus the time I quit and stuck to it for a month). I hope the flu doesn’t get worse although it indicates to me that my body is trying to repair itself. I’m excited about that.

    *sn* I almost fell off the wagon today. I found an old pack with some butts in it. I don’t like flicking butts in the ground. Usually I smoked to the filter and flicked out the cherry before putting the butt in the box, but apparently there was one that burned out on me. There was just enough stale tobacco in it for 2 puffs. I lit it…and let it burn away to nothing. It didn’t touch my lips, but Lord, it felt good holding it. I pray I don’t fall completely off the wagon this time.

    • I quit New years Eve and having a hard time with the quitter flu. I found my E cigarette and had one toke off of it. I feel bad for doing it, but seriously, it made me feel so much better.

  19. Well done everyone! I’m on day 18. Has anyone experienced indigestion as a side effect?

    • Yes to the indigestion, in fact, this is a pretty common side effect of smoking cessation. Talk to your doctor about medication. It doesn’t necessarily have to be prescription, there are some good OTC meds for heartburn, but should be used with your doctor’s okay. There are also herbal remedies available but if you are on any prescription meds, check with your doctor first.

    • Oh and do cut back on caffeine consumption. It has been proven that blood serum caffeine levels double, especially during the early days of smoking cessation, so cutting down on coffee, caffeinated sodas, etc. will certainly help with symptoms of caffeine toxicity (jitters, indigestion, anxiety, nausea, increased heart rate, sweating, dizziness….).

  20. I have quit before and every time I get sick, actually this time this is what helped me quit. Caught a cold at work, so since I only smoke 1-3 cigarettes a day, I didn’t feel like smoking at all, now I have had this crazy cold for 3 weeks, after a round of antibiotics, cold medicine and Aleve D, I thought I was getting better, but then tonight I had a sneezing fit and I’m all stopped again and coughing. Whatever it is, I just need sleep, and coughing=no sleep

  21. Hello, I made the conscious decision to completely quit on January 2nd. I found out I was pregnant on Christmas and though my friends told me not to quit because of the harm it could cause to the baby. I decided the little tadpole and I could champ through it now rather than have complications when he or she are born. I started with limiting myself and then the smell and taste became horrific which helped alot. I can without a doubt say that I am suffering from quitters flu. My “morning sickness” is 24/7, my body hurts, I’m not craving one at all honestly, I woke up this morning with a cough from hell and I’m coughing up all sorts of nasty crap, I’m irritable, I’m exhausted, my nose is runny, and just bleh bleh bleh. I keep telling myself it is a part of my journey and that it’s 100% better for me and my baby if I quit rather than say screw it and smoking one just to make all of this go away. I haven’t been smoking near as long as some of the years I’ve seen, I started when I was about 17 and now I’m 25, but regardless of the years, we’re all going through this together and I’m glad I found this thread because you feel really alone when your bf still smokes, your friends do, and your family either does, never did, or quit a long time ago. The quitters flu is 100% terrible but it’s not something that will last forever and that’s what I keep telling myself.

    • Hi, Amanda. I’m not sure why your friends would say it’s harmful to your baby to stop smoking. Your doctor and any other health care professional would readily tell you it’s the absolute best thing you can do for your unborn child and in fact, if you are successful in quitting before you reach 14 weeks along, your baby isn’t likely to suffer any harmful side effects of your former habit. Best of luck to you, hang in there. The symptoms of quitters flu do get better.

    • Amanda!
      I am in the exact same boat as you! Found out I was pregnant over Christmas, quit on New Years and the thought of smoking now makes me sick! My husband is still smoking but cutting down and not smoking around me which has helped, I have no desire to smoke but today my chest feels like a cold is coming on, my whole body aches, I am more exhausted then normal. This is my second child and I know I didn’t have these symptoms while pregnant with her…so I am definitely thinking its the quitters flu.

      good luck!

    Hi everyone! I have some questions! So I quit smoking Dec 26 2016! I was using the Nicoderm CQ patch. I have not smoked since I quit. I went down to step 2 on the patches last Friday. On Saturday I broke out into a rash everywhere. I removed the patch and have not put another one back on so I’ve been patch free for 3 days still no smoking but I must say last night I didn’t feel well at all! I felt as though I was going to pass out! Has anyone felt this and why do you think it’s happening?

    • Hi Loretta,

      Sounds unusual that reducing from 21 down to 14 mg patch would make you break out. Are you sure it wasn’t something else that caused the rash ?

      I used the patch to quit and know several others who did also. Are you still hanging in with no patch ?

      RC

  23. trudy plug says:

    hi stopped smoking new years eve day 3 wanted to kill everyone the next morning it was gone thank God now feel like I have the flu can handle that Keep thinking how proud I will be of myself if I can quit for good felt so ashamed when I smoked wishing every best of luck to quit The horrid things that happen to u if u smoke will for sure get u one day

  24. Day 3. Never looking back. Sore throat and all but hey. I’m a tough person. It’s better than getting sliced and diced and having no retirement to look forward to. Even if you survive past 65 you’ll have no quality of life. F@&k cigarettes. Can’t believe I didn’t do this earlier. !

  25. My hubby and I quit October 23, 2016. We started by using the patches. Unfortunately the patches didn’t work for me. I was worse on them. I gave it all up cold turkey. Now if I could just get this “quitters flu”. It keeps coming and going! So sick of being sick. But with a grandson on the way there’s no going back now!

  26. Pawan Mukhiya says:

    I had to give a little break to my smoking habit due to Chicken Pox. I didn’t smoke for at least 2 weeks and there it was the quitters flu. As I started recovering from chicken pox I started to to get extreme hot and cold flashes, flu and cold.. I thought it had to do something with the chicken pox. Consulted doctor but I was told it’s just a regular flu. So because of cold and cough which I still have, I decided to stay away from cigarettes until I googled and found the real cause of being feverish with cough and cold. My body was actually healing itself. And that’s when I decided if I can stay without smoking for almost 3 weeks why can’t I quit it for better!

  27. I quit smoking 10 months ago. I quit cold turkey and never looked back. I am still a non smoker. I have sinus problems like never before. I can’t smell anything, taste anything. The one thing I do smell…..Is cigarette smoke, but not around it. It’s so bad, I feel like I’m giving myself second hand smoke.
    I am ready to go to the doctor to prescribe me something for it. I take sudifed and nasal spray. I can’t blow my nose on the left side. I don’t know what else to do.
    I don’t like cigarettes or the smell. I’m not having urges to smoke either. How long will this last? Feeling like I’m going in Spain. Only I can smell it.

    • Going in Sain not spain

      • Hi..it seems that we have more health problems now than when we smoked..weird how the body heals itself that way..i use texa allergy for the sinus..others burn my nasals…i also want to know how long it lasts as my doctor says months…feels like i have one foot in the grave from chest pains..like a heart attack..cant breathe..like asthma…eish..why did i start just to put myself through this agony..day 29

        • Mel,

          I would love to connect with you somehow. I’ve read through a lot of the posts on this thread, and I’ve had the same experience as you. It been 4.5 months for me now. I had the “smokers Flue for Months,” and I’m just starting to get over these symptoms and feel normal again. But I’ve had severe chest/cardiovascular pains just like you. At one point it felt like I was breathing through a straw everyday.

      • By the way..i cant blow my left nose either…????

  28. Please keep going
    I am on day 17. First 10 days I used the e cig. Now I’m just me with no aids.
    This quitters flue has certainly got with me.
    When I start to cough I literally feel like my entire internal organs are falling out.
    I’m going to see doc tomoz just to rule anything out as blood has now appeared. In addition my ears have closed up. If that makes sense!!
    Feeling like this just makes me want to never have a cigerette again.
    Can’t believe the amount of toxins that must be in one to make me feel like this.
    I just hope I start to be normal soon
    Keep positive. You can do it. X

  30. Hi everyone….I quit smoking cigs on Aug 31st 2016 – but was already vaping with 8mg of nicotine. Yesterday, I decided to vape with 0 mg of nicotine and have been feeling the effects of nicotine withdrawals….just super sleepy, hot & cold, and occasional anxiety attacks. Hopefully it goes away soon….or I might cave in and go back to 8mg….will give it a week or so. Good luck to all that are trying to quit…it’s def not easy…but Vaping sure does help!
