Quitting smoking is the best way to find out all the systems in your body that were affected by nicotine.
Seriously. We have all seen the health risks associated to smoking. Everything from diabetes to migraines is linked to smoking. I used to grumble that if I got a hangnail, my doctor would tell me it's because I smoked.
Then I quit - and you know what? EVERYTHING is affected when you use nicotine.
My digestion couldn't figure out what the heck was going on and just shut down.
My sinuses have turned themselves inside out and have possibly molted.
I got headaches, I got light headed, and had days on end of being in a mental fog.
I couldn't sleep. I couldn't wake up.
Coffee tasted funny. Water tasted funny.
Let's not even discuss mood swings.
Withdrawal is good indication of where nicotine was doing its dirty work.
And it is very, very dirty
Keep the quit
