Just read NewMe 's 2 year progress report and it's clanging bells inside my head - she mentioned a runny nose.. I've had very few of the quit smoking side effects/symptoms that everyone talks about. Now 175 days into my quit I've developed a runny nose. Started about 3 weeks ago, with sneezing fits (I kid you not - I counted one day) of up to 63 at a time. Clear water just runs and I'm permanently attached to my tissue box. Then a day like today...not one sneeze so far. Then 3 days non-stop.
Am I now just be special and precious or can one have a quit symptom this late in the game - well 175 days is LATE IN THE GAME for me!! Surely I don't need to go to a doctor for clear tap water dripping out - I'm grossing myself out now.
I sometimes use Allergex when I can't handle it anymore and then sleep for way too long but try not to medicate myself too much.
