Smoking cessation: Good job quitting smoking, the best decision you can make. Keep trying. Your other symptoms sound unrelated to quitting smoking. For hemorrhoid, exercise daily, eat 6 prunes daily. For burning when you urinate, please see physician to check for infection.

Congratulations!!!: Quitting smoking is probably the single beat thing you could ever do for your health. Just hang in there and all the adjustments your body has to make will subside. To prevent hemorrhoid fr getting worse take Fiber and avoid constipation.
