It's different every time. It's different for every person.
I started smoking at 12 . I stopped the first time in June 2016. Cold turkey. It's nothing like this time .
Picked back up a cig. In Oct. 2018. After a disaster. Feb. I was told I had Hypothyroid. We tried me on Levox. Which took less then 4 months for my body to become allergic to it. My thyroid was at an 11 I had crashed. Then this month 6 days ago I was sitting on the porch smoking and realized I didn't enjoy it but did it for the destress. I wanted to be healthier. I put the pack in my drawer and didn't look back. I stopped COLD TUTKEY. IM the boss....this was 6 days ago.
Trigger#1. Back porch where I would sit. Don't go there now. #2. Trigger my sister. But since Monday sleep is where I lay down and get jolted wide awake heart pounding anxiety. No sleep at all. Like someone shocked me. I took benodrill kinda helped . I also feel like I'm in a huge fog. There but not mentally. Like I'm blah ...Had constipation now diahrea. I can't eat sugar or my anxiety kicks in bad.
Had my thyroid tested last night TSH was a 7. They told me it smoking effects your thyroid and many smokers get thyroid disorder after quiting smoking. Great I already have one. So I'm sure some of the side affects are that to. My will power is there i won't ever smoke again but I'd like to know how other people have fog or tired or how they feel.
