    Hi Kirstie smile it could be your new medication or perhaps what you have recently been diagnosed with. I don't think a chat with your GP would hurt, if just to ease your mind. Let us know how you get on x

    Your feelings are caused by a lack of nicotine. That is why some people use patches or nicotine tablets.

    When I was in my teens I started smoking, over the years I was on sixty tabs a day. Eventually I stopped smoking after about ten years. My withdrawal was about the same until my lungs started to clean themselves out by a smokers cough. I brought up soot and tar until my lungs cleared. It took about two years to know I was winning. Now of course the cost of a Pack of Cigarettes is horrendous that is a great reason to stop.

    I stopped forty years ago and never went back to them.

      We all go through the same problems, you will most probably get pains in your lungs as well when you cough. All parts of life mystery and clearing your lungs out, your tummy may feel upset this can also be caused by the horrible cough we all get.

    If there was a little button in here to guve you a little trophy and a hug i was click it. You love have a lot going on and you are doing a great job. Quitting smoking takes a toll, a good ine, but a toll and takes minths before the body readjusts to good oxygen and circulation levels. Try ginger for the dizziness. Fresh ginger. A juicer is a great thing for you. You juice one inch of ginger peeled raw and fresh, four stalk of celery and one green apple. This will help you a lot. And drink a lot of fresh water. Half your body weight in onces a day.so if you are 120 pounds then 60 ounces of water a day. bananas, avacadoes, kale all great for you right now. This will pass look up foods for dizziness. Juicing is the best way to get nutrition and needed suppliments into your system.  The body knows how to absorb nutrition from natural sources. Hang in there. 

    So many people love long showers. Get so clean and relaxed. Why wouldnt you cleanse your insides with the same cleansing water. 

    Feel good. Hang in there. It will pass. And stay on the iron that was perscribed for you.
