Is it normal to feel like s--- after quitting smoking?
I'm on day 17 since I had my last smoke, and good news is my cravings aren't nearly as hair pulling worthy as the were at first, and they are much much rarer now - maybe 1 a day at most. I smoked for 7 years (I'd say on average I was a 2 pack every 3 days smoker) and have tried quitting HUNDREDS of times before but I think this time I have the willpower, this is the longest I have gone smokeless in about 4 years and that time was only for a month. With me approaching my 30s (just turned 27) I am much more concerned with my health (I know, smoking at any age is unhealthy, yada yada yada, tell us smokers something we don't know, hahaha) and now here in Illinois the price for cigarettes is ridiculous, so my motivation is twofold. Anywho, I'm inching the 3 week point but about 2 days ago I have what I thought was either a cold or the flu. I'm not nauseous (yet) and my joints don't ache so that ruled out the flu, so i thought I just had a cold. But I don't remember ever having a cold that gave me headaches, a sore throat, constant phlegm being hacked up, and, not to be to graphic, gassy as hell. I'm hacking up so much phlegm to the point hacking it up is making me nauseous, haha, not the bug itself. I ask if it is because of me quitting smoking because I figured this would happen shortly after I had quit, like maybe 5-7 days afterwards when withdrawals really kick in. However, like I said I am near week 3, when my cravings are few and far between and I feel I have a pretty solid grasp of the new not smoking after everything routine (used to smoke upon waking up, drinking coffee, after meals, driving, typical smoker smoke breaks). If it is from not smoking anymore and my lungs are just now finally scrubbing themselves out, how long can I expect this sore throat and constant hacking to last? Tomorrow will be day 3 of this crap. It isn't discouraging me to start up again by any means (I have no idea how anyone with a sore throat could think about smoking) I just want this crap to get over with.
