Quit Today

Hi All

I have quit smoking today and I am on NiQuitin cq Clear 21mg patches.

I have recently been having a lot of acid reflux and what not and as I suffer from health anxiety it was stupid for me to smoke, easpecially as I am always thinking I have cancer.

So I decided to quit, I have tried before and failed,, but I am going to do it this time.

It is 1pm in the UK and I've not smoked for 12hrs now, I am feeling dizzy is this normal also I am feeling very heavy legged, is this also normal?

Any input and support would be greatly appriciated.

Re: Quit Today

Good Luck to you Melly, This if my fourth week without smoking and I also have anxiety. I have to tell you, that I feel more calm now than I ever did when I was smoking. I hope you have great success, take one day at a time and the urge does get less as time goes by. I didn't really believe it but it has with me.

Re: Quit Today

Godd job mellyuk, The first few days after I quit I was so sleepy!! I had to nap in the afternoons, which I had never done before. I also felt kind of dopey. I am on my 5th day of not smoking and I am feeling better. the brain fog has mostly gone away. I still sometimes think " I should have a cigarette" like after a meal but I am able to turn that thought in another direction. good luck!!!
