    Hi New Chapter, I would go and see your doctor and get yourself checked out. At least that way you will know for sure and it will put your mind at rest. If it is something that you are coming down with they can treat it...if it is related to quitting smoking then you can just ride it out. Good luck

    Hi new chapter. Many people have experienced a time of coughing a few weeks after quitting smoking. I guess the cilia get stronger and are more adept at sweeping the lungs clean, thereby causing you to cough. It is a time of healing. It is also a time of pandemic, so take precautions as to not spread anything should it be communicable. Of course see a doctor if it is concerning to you. Feel better soon!

    Well I ended up in hospital for the night,my breathing worsened and I was in pain in my chest,they ran some tests and it’s a gastric problem so not as bad as I thought,I’ve been told not to run for a while until they’re 100%what the problem is,but glass half full,and onwards and foreward we go
    Have a great day 😀💪

    I am glad to know you found the cause of your symptoms. Until it is understood , the root of the problem found, then it can be remedied quicker rather than by trial and error (and the suffering that goes along with it). Just like quitting smoking. You have to know you. You knew your body well enough to know there was something wrong. Once we understand why we began to smoke, we can start to resent how it came to control us. Understanding gives us power. We now have the knowledge to remedy the problem. I hope you will feel better post-haste!

    I’m feeling a lot better today Thankyou happiness,the reasons I started smoking when I was younger was because all my friends did and then I thought it was a cool
    thing to do I guess,I don’t resent how it controlled me over the years,as I see it,we are in control of ourselves,and anything or anyone we let in our lives is of our own doing,I put it down to a young man thinking it was clever to smoke,but now I’ve chose not to smoke anymore,I’ve stopped and will never smoke again ever.
