Hi, I’m 2 weeks in and going well but my Sinuses are terrible esp at night did anyone else experience this?
After two weeks of no smokes I have had minimal cravings, or symptoms of withdrawal, now I have a soar throat with some chest congestion. Is this normal after two weeks or could this be covid related? I'm worried.

Couple of days, on 6 January 2021 will be one year since quitting smoking for me and gaining the freedom of becoming a non-smoker.
Despite 2020 being one of the most difficult years for many, including myself, my father also unexpectedly passed away. There were many times I felt like folding but I didn’t... I didn’t post here this time last year, but I read through some of the posts of people th...
Watch for mouth ulcers and gum irritation. I read that 40% give up quitting when the ulcers hit and I can see why but have not given up. Any hints on getting rid of the ulcers?
