I quit smoking since 20 April 2012. When I stop, I was suffering food poisoning. With this opportunity I resolve to quit smoking (cold turkey). The following are symptoms that occur to me since the first day I quit smoking:
3 days - 2 weeks = abdominal pain, high fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fainting, loss of appetite, fatigue, blurred vision, loss of interest in the hobby.
As a result of all these symptoms, I did not attend the test at my college. I also vomit after I play badminton and begins to lose interest in that hobby. There was a day I feel tired all day and feel like want to die. The whole body feel cold, around me became silent, just heard my heart beat very fast.
2 weeks - 2 months = Anxiety, depression, high fever, nausea, vomiting, phlegm, sore throat, dry throat, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, lung irritation, chest tight, strong heartbeat, tiredness.
As a result of all these symptoms, I went to the doctor 2 times and tell me that I was normal but a little stress. Anxiety and depression is killing me. I feel like I want to die. Longing to cigarettes started playing in my mind. But I still managed to hold. Discomfort in my chest cause I think something strange such as lung cancer and heart disease. Perhaps this is the detox process.
2-4 months = Anxiety, shortness of breath, lung irritation, dizziness, fainting, sore throat, dry throat, strong heartbeat
At this time, I think my condition has improved. Only a few remaining symptoms. I have started doing normal activities in my college. Just short of breath and heart beat very fast that interfere with my activities.
4 months - now = Anxiety, shortness of breath, lung irritation, dizziness, sore throat, dry throat, strong heartbeat
Above symptoms often occur at night.
Each person will experience different detox process as mental, physical, metabolic, etc.. Each person has a unique way to detox process. Some people are easy and some are like hell. I suggest you ALL PATIENT AND HAVE FAITH YOU ABLE TO QUIT SMOKING.
Will be updated again ... ;-)
