Hi everyone, So I was a heavy smoker for about the last 9 months and had been on and off smoking heavily for the last year and a half. I quit 41 days ago today, and it has been a living nightmare.The first week wasn't too bad, it wasn't until day 10 that I started feeling awful. Numbness on the left side of my body, pulsing headache, feeling weak on my left side, insomnia, heart palpitations. You name it I experienced it. So this prompted me to go to the Hospital, and I had every test under the sun ran on me. Obviously everything came back perfectly healthy. So the last week and a half I have been feeling much more normal but I keep getting spurts of pure anxiety out of nowhere. Heart starts thumping hard, light headed, depersonalization, muscle spasms in my left leg. I've been just trying to tough this out, but I'm curious if anyone can relate to what I'm experiencing and also give me an idea if this will be permanent or will I begin feeling human completely again.any insight or stories are appreciated and I am really grateful for you reading mine and helping in advanced!
On November 6, I finally met my goal and made 1 year clean. This was the hardest and longest process I have ever went thru in my life but I am glad the hardest part is over but the battle is never over. Addiction sucks it really does but I can say it is a humbling eye opening experience. *pat on the back to me.
I'm 17 weeks pregnant and though I still use it's definitely not heavy like it was before finding out I was pregnant. Of course that doesn't make it okay. I know this.. Currently I use every few days. And I do stop using 5-7 days prior to my O.B appointments. The first 3-5 days suck but by day six of withdrawal I feel "good."I'm wondering if I quit now, for good, will my baby be okay? I know...
