I'm on day 19 and I'm feeling like i have problems with my taste somehow..it's like I'm feeling sick all the time but the feeling get stronger in night in addition to some gas and constipation problems which deprive me from eating well so i want to know if I'm the only one who experienced this ?
Due to what is currently going on the world with Corvid19 I have been severely worried about catching the virus and going through the symptoms whilst being a smoker.
I had cut down all of a sudden to at least 1 smoke a day from the 23rd of March due to my fears of not being able to recover if I did catch the virus and I just didn’t feel like it was doing it for me anymore, if that makes sense.
So I quit smoking cold turkey just over two weeks ago. I never smoked in my life (I’m 41) until 18 months ago approx. Long story but my partner smoked, and it started casually as he smoked in the house at weekends. We aren’t together any more, that’s another horror story but the stress of him dumping me several times before I finally told him I wasn’t going back had me reaching for cigarettes ...
The cigarette packaging images were a huge a wake up call to me, I'm terrified of getting the diseases as they are so graphic. I quit for me and I quit for my family... u can too

My quit story starts with one failed attempt. Three months in and I smoked another cigarette. 2017.
I went to the hospital in 2019, and lo and behold, I found motivation to quit. I feel like the luckiest person in the world because I'm stupid enough for it not to sink in that it could kill me instantly. Like a stroke or clot.
My Dad was the one who got to me. He said a staunch no as I beg...
I have not smoked in 56 days. Some days I feel great some days I don’t. Chest hurts and breathing hurts sometimes. I can feel my heart beating sometimes. I have gone to see doctors 3 times and they did ekg and it’s always normal. I hope this goes away.
Hi- I gave up in November and since this dreadful virus has come to the world, over the last month I have started to have a couple a day due to anxiety, I suffer from mental health problems all the time and feel like I am not coping with stress at the moment, still using the patches, anyone else feeling like this?
