It has been 26 hours with no cigarettes, my throat feels swollen and sore is this normal this close to after quitting?
Congratulations on going more than a day without smoking!
Hot lemon tea with honey may help. Different experiences for different people. Have heard of scratchy throat etc. Sounds like a minor adjustment that should work itself out if you do not smoke. Congrats on 25 hrs. Drink plenty of water also. Stay close.
CONGRATS rbrown53 on 26 HOURS NICOTINE FREE!!! Good job and a fresh lemon cut in slices and sucking on will help with sore throat or put in water and keep on keeping on
It is winter and lots of bad things going around - it might not be quit related at all. I am a believer in extra vitamin C!
Congratulations on your quit, I have to agree with Jennifer-Quit-05-01-14 that it may not be related at all but if it is, it is a small price to pay for freedom. I was very ill when I quit so I have no idea what was related to quitting and what was related to being ill. I DO know that I am seriously happier as an EX smoker than I ever was as a smoker. You are doing this and it is possible that your addiction is going to pull out some strange tricks to get you back. Go for some vitamin C and some cough drops to soothe your throat. You might also get some over the counter flu medicine and try to get a good night's sleep.
You are doing great.
Thank you all...
Your most welcome hope you feel better soon in MY Lord Jesus name amen please take what helps and let go of the rest
Dry mouth, sore throat and coughing are normal, short-lived side effects. As your body adjusts to being nicotine-free, these symptoms will go away. Hang in there! It get's better and better!
