Effects of Quitting Smoking on the Body
This link told me a lot. Now I know why my hands are tingling and my feet hurt more than they usually do and my head is about to explode and I can't sleep.
I feel you I'm where you are
There are some great “natural” and “drug free” choices to help sleep and anxiety... I am on these from Amazon, when I need them:
by... Natural Vitality called “Calm"
by...Nested called “Luna"
i have calm so stress i FORGOT i HAD IT
Ready2021 Everyone is different...you have to work on each effect of quitting smoking...headache, take some Tylenol and/or close your eyes and put an ice bag on your head...anxiety, do breathing exercises, meditation, pray, etc., sleeplessness find things to do to help with sleep, chamomile tea, read a book, etc., “one thing at a time”...wishing you a Happy Tuesday ~ Colleen 813 DOF
You are very early in your quit, and your body is adjusting to life without the drug. Just as everyone is different, so is every quit timeline. Just take it a day at a time. Be kind to yourself in these early days; TLC is called for.
Nap if you can for the insomnia - at night be sure your room is cool and dark, turn off electronics at least two hours before bed, and maybe no caffeine (including chocolate) after mid-afternoon when you first quit (caffeine has a greater effect on you when you quit). Melatonin is available OTC or you create it by warming a bit of milk at bedtime. If you can take Benadryl, try that. If you awaken in the middle of the night, try thinking of girls'/boys' names for each letter of the alphabet, or cities and states for each letter. Don't just lie in bed and worry about not sleeping. Get up after about 30 minutes and work on a crossword, or read.
Take Tylenol or Advil for the headache..
This all WILL pass. Hang in there until it does!
Yes I'm taking advil and thank you
MY headache lasted THREE days it was like a vice grip on MY head - I can totally relate
I feel the same way I can't at all it's driving me crazy.
Ready2021 You are being given a jarring example of the effect of nicotine on our bodies! Your body WILL adjust - but just think what smoking must have done for withdrawal to be this painful! The early days of a quit are difficult, no two ways about it. Remember it, though, when you are tempted to give in and lose your quit. You don't want to ever go through this again!
On sleep, get zzquil. It's what I use and no groggy feeling afterwards. Just 1 cupful and I'm zzzzzzzzzzzzz
