Breathing still not the best. Can only walk for about 5 mins before I'm struggling. Might need to go back to Dr to check on my asthma. I'm not having any cravings thank goodness!

Profile image Janet G1 June, 2017

Double digits tomorrow woohoo!! πŸŽ‰
At 9 days on my quit, the only walking I did was across the road to Burger King (salad burger πŸ” of course) at lunchtime 😩 Lol.
I hope you've got a good doctor that you can talk to to help you 😁😁

Still got the sweats and now the shakes. Omg please tell me this will end soon!!!

Profile image Nana2228 May, 2017

Hi Sammie. Firstly.....well done on 5 days smokefree! That's only 2 sleeps away from your first whole week!
Provided this sweating and shakes are 'recovery' symptoms (which is most likely), and you're not sickening for anything.....it absolutely will get better. Can't say exactly when - but it will get so much better. Remember we have stuffed our bodies with all manner of toxins as smokers. The body now begins to clear itself. This is a good thing.
Hang in there Sammie. Be kind to yourself - if you need to sleep, then sleep. And make sure to drink lots of water to help flush the system.
Another thought........ Are you a coffee drinker? I know i found the effects of coffee so much stronger when i first quit. Including the sweats, shakes, and palpitations. I cut it right back to only 1 or 2 cups a day.....and it did help.
Stay strong and take it ODAAT - one day at a time.

Profile image Bluetui28 May, 2017

stay strong. your doing well. It will pass trust me. and Once you have got throu this things will look up. Good luck.

Profile image Sammie197928 May, 2017

Thank you both of you.

Yes I was a coffee drinker but have given coffee up at the same time I have the smokes. I'm drinking one cup of tea now. I'm also drinking more than 2litres of water so am definitely drinking enough.

Profile image smokefreemep29 May, 2017

I think it will pass but if it gets too much check it out sammie..

Profile image Madhatter29 May, 2017

Every one reacts differently to the withdraw. I remember on a previous attempt I actually went home feeling just like that and literally felt at thou I was going to vomit. Yes it passed and i was so much better for it. Look at it as a positive. My body is recovering. You are doing it. Stay strong, don't give in to feeding the addiction. It will pass and you will feel more in control. Its going to be amazing to be free.:)

Profile image clarebear29 May, 2017

Cuppa teas, mmmmm. Hang on in there Sammie.
