is it normal to feel nausea after you stop smoking?

Possible if you: stopped cold turkey. Your body is trying to expectorate all the debris from your smoking from your lungs that's trying to get cleared out of your lungs b the ciliary action of the lungs that may be full of mucus too, that you may be coughing up. This can produce nausea if severe enough. Call your PCP office for help in stopping smoking completely, and what you can do during the withdrawal period.

Will taking doxylamine at night last long enough to help with my midday nausea?

Try it and see!: One half tablet of doxylamine can be taken along with vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) three times daily for nausea of pregnancy. As a side effect can be sleepiness, an alternative is to take a full tablet at bedtime, and just use the B6 during the day. Try both ways and see what works for you.

What's the best motivation to quit smoking?

You: You must be ready to quit. My favorite way to stop smoking is the baggie trick. Pretend you smoke one pack per day. Every morning you place 20 cigs in a bag and smoke them. Do this for a week. Next week place 19 cigs per day and smoke them. Continue to reduce the count by one each week. This weans you not only of the nicotine, but also the various habbits that you associate with smoking.
