Why is it when you give up smoking you feel so ill. It's only been a week and i've got a stinking cold and ache all over! Come on FA and all you other giver uppers, any tips? would it be worth taking some vitamins?

You might have had the cold and aches anyway. I don't think there are any tips. If you want to stop smoking, stick with it. If you want to keep smoking and try again another time, have a cigarette. Nobody will think any less of you.

Hey Chav my Dad will come with you, but you'll have to wheel him out cos he's got no legs anymore cos the insides of them fell apart and he had to go to hospital about 3 times to have bits taken off him because of fags. Or my Auntie, she's gone blind, but she'll no doubt know you cos she can sniff you out.

lauren....it's all the toxins coming out of your system and the fact that you're probably having nicotine withdrawal symptoms...which, im reliably informed, can be as bad as going cold turkey with Heroin !!!
This will be no consolation to you at all Lauren but ive never been so ill or been to the doctors as many times in my life as i have in the past 5 years....i was almost on first name terms with the quacks at one point !!!
Keep going Lauren and good luck hun....you know where i am if you need a natter

No legs eh walter? Tell you what then, if he don't want a whole fag, I could take him out for a drag.

Lauren,if it's any consolation,I have given up giving up.'Til tomorrow anyway.
If you have managed a week,good on you.But I agree with the comment about forever being ill since you give up.We must keep these threads going cos I need all the encouragement I can get at the moment...
What methods have you tried? I have tried willpower (Ha!!) patches and gum,and Alan Carr.
I have hypnotherapy to go,probably colonic irrigation...And all my family have given up,so I can't even blame them....
Again,comments and ideas welcome.
Except you Chav.Kissy Kiss.....

I've actually just started smoking again recently in a bid to stand up for the individual's freedom of speech and right of choice - feel it so unfair that this ban was introduced in such a draconian fashion - what is wrong with pubs offerring dedicated smoking rooms for example - shame that so often smoker's should stand out in the rain, so I go out and join my mates for a fag - and very sociable they are too - I ponce loads of fags and never need to buy any - they are so grateful for the company that they flash their own for me - I would buy me own but can't get Senior Service anymore

Lauren, the first week is the worst and if you've got over that you've beaten the physical addiction. The psychological addiction takes longer and is manifested through all those daft excuses for starting again tomorrow. Be stronmg. Choose any system you think might help, but in the end it is down to how determined you are to beat this vile and expensive habit that's killing you. Lots of luck!

Well done for giving up, lauren and I'm sure you'll feel better as soon as the nicotine gets out of your system.
Although of "feeling better", I think it can be a somewhat over-egged benefit of giving up smoking. Sure, if you have galloping emphysema things can only get better without a fag. But the only real difference I've noticed is that my legs give way more quickly than my lungs.
Smoking is a grubby, unhealthy and expensive habit - which are good enough reasons to pack it in. Expecting a massive turnaround on the feeling better front depends on rather more than smoking. IMHO.

I must admit my biggest worry is that i put on weight. Im fortunate enough to have never been over weight except for when i had my children, and now giving up smoking the weight thing is starting to worry me as everyone i've spoken to that has given up says they gained between 1 and 2 stone easy.

So Lauren,How's it going??

Hi, its going well, just over a week but eating alot of sweets. Need to get down the gym to burn of these extra calories. Im not going to lie, i have had a couple of cigs over the week but that seems to be working for me, rather than going cold turkey. I seem to want one around 9pm so if im only having one a day and eventually that will just stop i'll be happy. My chest is really suffering due to asthma and giving up, bloody chest infection but it will be worth it. How are you doing? x

I ain't doing very well.My baccy packet which I bought tonight had a picture of sperm on it,saying sperm count is reduced due to smoking...Give me a picture of a diseased lung,that will (maybe) do more good.
Good for you.I admire anyone who can give up the evil weed.but it is such a part of my life.We must stay in touch.I need the gym too...Which one do you use? X

But the reason you feel bad when try to give up smoking is because your body is trying to tell you not to stop smoking. It's not like giving up heroin it's more like cutting down on food! You body gets rasied energy levels from smoking tobacco, if you quit your body is deprived of this energy and so it can leave you feeling tired at times and wanting to eat more.
