Hey everyone, I am new here :). I am 30 years old. I have smoked for 2 years, about a pack per day. I decided to quit after cutting down for about a month. I am now on day 52. I have went through all the withdrawal symptoms like crying spells, irritation, brain fog, anxiety attacks, depression, and downright wanting a smoke at all seconds of the day.
I feel like most of those symptoms have really settled down since starting my 2nd month of being smoke free. The one symptom that hasn't let up is wheezing and chest congestion. There is congestion in my windpipe and also lungs. I've been to the doctors several times now about this, and they didn't have much to say about it.
I do have an inhaler but I haven't used it yet. Hoping this goes away at some point. Strangely enough I didn't cough up any brown mucus or anything like that, but I can definitely feel it all in there, it just doesn't seem to want to move.
One time a piece blocked my airway for a second and that was scary. I really hope this isn't asthma or something because sometimes I really wheeze! I've never had asthma. :( Trying to stay hopeful.
