On month on the 20th

Posted in Quit experiences 19 May 2020

Welp, I am almost to one month, and I had the worst experience last night... felt like I could not breath, woke up every couple hours thinking I was not breathing ... this morning im tired and having the worst panic attacks. Anyone else feel this bad after a month? Is it possible the anxiety and panic attacks will subside in a few weeks or is this a long term worry ... any tips would help ... I still have a bad mucus problem in my lower throat... im just losing my mind with worry and I dont know if the breathing issues are normal this far in!

    Hey I had really bad anxiety attacks also..They are better but I still get the occasional flutter and I'm in my 6th week. I still get the feeling of not being able to get a breath now and then. I have mucus also where some days I need to keep clearing my throat. I her it will all subside eventually. Just think what smoking has done to our bodies if this is what it feels like trying to get rid of the toxins and repair. Just keep plugging away and take each day s it comes.

    Seems as if you need to try to relax with music or meditation, if you haven't done so yet. You can also work on your diet with some herbs included if you want to research these things. You are doing really well, I get anxious now and again, but it is something you can overcome.

    It is only 4 weeks, but hey you are doing really well for getting this far.

    We are living in extraordinary times, but we can either move forward or stay still it is up to you we are all different. Congratulations on 4 weeks NOPE (not one puff ever)
