I had a stop start beginning to my quit after 20 years of smoking in september 2020. I'd quit a few weeks then smoke for a day then quick etc.
But i have now been clean since December 27th. Around the end of november as i first went cold turkey style the stomach pain and gas and muscular back pain has been pretty intense, especially in the colon. I went to see my doctor and h...
Finally made it to the 6wk mark. Longest 6wks of my life. I dont crave the smokes anymore🙌 but still suffering from anxiety 🤦♀️. I feel good for 2days, then anxiety kicks back in for day. I've had no coughing (yet) I definitely feel better then I did 2-4wks ago. I'm managing the anxiety with those natural HS health vitamins, they are definitely helping

Pain in back some time,

if it persists.&...
Try a strict routine and support from Family. Being around ones you love helps and so does the routine. Sure i go to sleep earlier, but the savings are astronomical! And i still drink coffee.

Update all - it’s my 2nd year quit on 1 January 2021. I have another year added to my tally. Thought I would patch in and update as I think of my quit at this time every year and I also think about this group. And the lovely people who supported me like Happiness, PuffNoMore, Nuts and others.
