Chest Pain-due to smoking??

I have been smoking off and on for about a year and a half. However within the past few months I started smoking more than usual. Now, I am trying to quit. I am gone from around half a pack to about 1 or 2 cigarettes per day. A big improvement for me! However, lately I have been feel upper chest pain. I heard this can be due to stress? But something tells me smoking may play a role. It motivates me to quit even more though! Any ideas??

You are only smoking 1 or 2 cigarettes a day? Why even bother smoking them? Give up those one or two smokes and guess what? You are now a non-smoker

As for the chest pain, numerous things can be to blame but certainly smoking doesn't help.

But realistically you have proven you can go without it. Just give up those last one or two per day...

I had been smoking cigarettes for 30 yrs, average a pack / day for those years . Last 12 months I had been slowly cutting it down to an average of 3 cigarettes a day now; some days I went for only 2 and some days I had the crave and smoked 4 or 5 . And quite often I had been able to throw away after smoking only half of it : No Jokes ! But I do not know why I just can not quit it for good !
