The flu is intense but ironically unlike most common flu i experience, keep on going guys, i really wish this constant headache would go away though. The information we provide while responding to comments is not intended to provide and does not constitute medical, plus my kids are around and I want to be healthy and live a productive life for them.
I will not pretend to be able to explain it, jolene did you go cold turkey and how long did you smoke . I have had a sore throat, i woke up this morning from a cigarette smoking dream. So take it from me, im still having sore cheeks and sores in tongue. And of course, and my the universe reward you for all that you are doing here.
I’m posting this realizing its been several months since your post and hoping you managed to wean off the subs by now. But as I woke up, didn’t want it to stop me so I threw it putt and I’m going to keep going.
Would I be better off just stopping it rather than weaning myself off it gradually? It had snuck right upon me!
3-4 hours,wen i breathe weezing sound comes that also happens only in morning wen i wake up. I am on day 29 and it gets better.
That’s what I would do, but I’m not a doctor and this is just an informational comment so make sure to speak with your doctor first about what you should do. My throat is constantly sore and feel run down and unwell. If I were going through methadone withdrawal I would be sipping on some kava beverage. I don’t know what you read, but personally, I’ve tried kava paste with high kavalactones, and vaped kava oil, and used the powder and none of these needed 5 times to work on me.
But if you feel you can’t quit, here is another reason you might, your smell comes back, I can actually smell a cigarette a block away now. Woot woot, happy New Year everyone!
If you take too much for too long, it can even cause a horrible withdrawal syndrome very similar to opiate withdrawal. Red seems to work best initially but after a while they may get a bit sedating. I only enjoyed 2 or 3 of the cigarettes I smoked each day and took a few urgent puffs of the others, hated the taste in my mouth then threw them away way before they reached the filter. I do want to plan some kind of trip as a reward or a goal to work towards.
So new year’s Eve I have my last one because I now just don’t smoke cigarettes. I remember severe craving and irritability for 2-3 months and not really feeling like I was getting there until after 6 months or more. I have nothing important for the next 2 weeks, so I’m pretty much just going to be staying home and hitting the gym when I feel up to it. I found a head shop that sold kratom but it was very pricey.
I hope this helps and hope your situation improves. Anyone else in a similar situation, I am not taking any nicotine substitutes.
Is severe itching of hands and feet with no visible rash or sores a symptom of nicotine withdrawal? But I tell ya, for a person like me that probably has a genetic GABA deficiency, this stuff is the cure.
A couple of nights ago I dreamed I bought a pack of smokes but I did not smoke one. Patches keep me sane- a few days left of step 2 before final two weeks.
I did however, try to beat the timeclock and try to rebound a bit too quickly by throwing some white in the mix for energy that is often lacking during withdrawal. Its been 3 days and regular exercise and keeping my mind off smoking has helped.
If it doesn’t go away I am afraid I am going to cave in and have a cigarette. I will be honest, I was on methadone for 4 years before coming off but that time truly helped me to get used to normal life again and get away from the seeking behavior. I’ve been smoking for 14 years, and my husband and I recently found out we’re expecting.
I’ve tapered down to 4 mg lately and had planned to be tapered off by April of next year. Good luck to us all ex-smokers, just think of the better days ahead. I gave it all up cold turkey. I have smoked for 45yr less a 5yr stint I gave up.
You are at the right spot. I know everyone is deferent and some seem to see affects the first time taking it. I am so tired of pain management doctor’s heavy sales on back surgerys.
There are many different strains of kratom to choose from. When someone does cocaine or heroine it does not get into family and friends systems but this does .
13, 2015, file photo, the American flag flies above the Wall Street entrance to the New York Stock Exchange. However I can explain what I have gone thru and continue to experience. I just wish my tolerance wasn’t so high and that I had a vein big enough to handle the size of a shot it would take to kill me. But have a awful sore throat.
Keep up the good work! Keep an energy bar with you or a protein shake once you start exercising. That being said, I’m concerned about what happens when I stop the patches.
My kratom is capped already, so I’m lucky. I’ll be popping in from time to time for updates and encouragement. Apparently I will go into withdrawal if anything is in my system.
I’m so scared of that again! But people always respond differently to different things. MY husband HATES it and I feel bad about it. I went completely through it, it lasted 2 weeks.
As long as you are addicted to the nicotine from the patch or gum the odds to you starting to smoke again are very good and that is what they want. She loves me very much. I have an outdoor jacuzzi under the trees that I soaked in after taking 7. I don’t know exactly how many I have but the vendor said each capsule contains approx.
Still i have not give in. Below is a picture of passion flower. I have been forgetting to take it regularly and so symptoms never go away. I wish you all the best!
Given the amount of rubbish that builds up in a smokers lungs, this can be quiet extreme and often takes time to settle down. What is the Best Way to Quit Smoking Cigarettes?
The last time I saw my new grandson and I was holding him he thought I was sick and I said not to worry it’s a flu from quitting smoking . For others it can last for months.
I was so happy being smoke free. Yeah, the anxiety from quitting is completely new to me.
Your email address will not be published. I am on day 4 but it feels that i am in big trouble i can not concentrate every time feeling sleepy.
These medications are non-nicotine based but still act at the sites in the brain affected by nicotine. I’m sitting down 120 to 70.
I feel is in the gray area of cig withdrawal or peri. 20 days have not been easy. I am so glad I can come here for advice and support. I quit in 2009 and was smoke free until August of this year.
I am SO EXCITED about these products that I almost don’t know where to begin. I just want to know when is this all going to end? I also got the calm supplements.
First thing in the morning can still be a pain in the butt for me, and after dinner is a bit problematic still as well. 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.
Ellie, I never developed a smoker’s cough while smoking either, so when I had this chest tightness I was worried. Every five minutes I am feeling anxiety and wanting to smoke. Well I took the 6 green first, It hit me pretty quick, My lips got numb and the pain in my spine from the methadone withdrawal left, I felt euphoric and energized.
Once this is complete I would wait until I was fully stable before attempting to stop the benzo. Happy to leave this nasty habit for good.
