i gave up smoking last year for 9 weeks and started again because i felt so bad really ill but and within 3 days i felt fine again when i went for my diabetic test my thyroid was low so i was put on thyroxine i stopped smoking 2 weeks ago again had already gained nearly 2 stone and feel like i am dying lots of symptoms i feel like smoking again to see if i feel any better i am not sure if its the thyroid or the stopping smoking thats making me feel so ill has anyone any ideas mabie i should have waited till they got the thyroid sorted before i stopped again i was fine before i stopped the first time i have smoked for 40 years
