2 Weeks After Quit Smoking
I quit smoking 2 weeks ago I've had 3 nosebleeds has blood pressure checked before quitting was fine?
I am using nicotine replacements
Possible Connection: Probably not a connection between quitting smoking, nicotine replacement and nosebleeds. However, your body may not be accustomed to the route of delivery and/or dosage associated with product you're using. Nicotine is a stimulant and your heart may be pumping harder as it adjusts to new nicotine delivery system or dose. That could make you more susceptible to nosebleeds (tiny blood vessels). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Still coughing 2 weeks after sinus infection/bronchitis. Trying to quit smoking. Worried/scared of copd?
Silver linings: Sometimes it takes feeling ill to help people really get serious about quitting. If so, it's doing you a favor. 34 is not too old to have the changes you make be very significant - you should be able to avoid COPD (a good choice!) Worry may not be needed and once it motivates you - send it packing! Two weeks is still w/in normal range for healing, but see your Dr. if it goes on. Get a Star! ...Read more

Im smoking cigarette so much.Daily 20+ ciggarette.I was starting before 2year ago.How to leave smoking.
Cold turkey.: As far as quitting without any nicotine replacement, the cold turkey method is great. But plan it ahead of time. Pick a quit date in advance, maybe a meaningful date like a birthday or holiday, and gather people who are aware of your attempt that you can call upon for moral support if you start to falter. Good luck!! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im on smoke withdrwal after 10 months after meals only 3 to 4 cigs daily last i quited for 7 months started again ill face withdrawal sym anxiety?
The more you: think you will have withdrawal symptoms, the more you will. Chew gum, mints, hold a pen in your hand, give yourself permission to be "off duty" or relax w/out smoking. Some find completely stopping works better so you don't slowly smoke a few more each day. You can do it. Peace and good health. Get a good multivitamin also. ...Read more
Is 8 weeks enough time for baby and me to be clean from smoking marijuana? I have 8 weeks left till delivery. April 3 is due date. Quit 1 day ago
Possibly not: Depending on how frequently you've been using, your urine drug screen may be positive for up to 100 days. That's longer than 8 weeks. The more worrisome thing is that you've been exposing your baby to thc and many other metabolites during your pregnancy to date. Please talk with your physician about this so that they can be aware and watchful for your baby's safety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Gave up smoking started e cigarette 3 weeks ago now experiencing nose bleeds every 2-3 days that last about 3-5 minutes healthy before quitting?
Quit e cigs: I suspect the nose bleeds are the result of starting smoking e- cigarettes and not the result of quitting smoking, that' s why I would recommend first to quit smoking altogether. In case your nosebleeds continue talk to your doc. I suspect it is only a coincidence as far as timing and not due to quitting smoking. ...Read more

I have quit smoking for two weeks now after smoking 2-3 packs per week for 10 yrs. No withdrawl signs. Is this normal?
You're normal: Withdrawal from nicotine in tobacco typically takes from 2 to 4 weeks or longer, but varies a lot from person to person. There are physical parts -- dependence to nicotine, but also psychological (i want it now, my brain says), and social too (l want to smoke with friends). It's totally ok you don't have withdrawal.

Quit smoking for 5 days, couldn't have bowel movement. Slipped and smoked, movement within 2 hours. Quit again, completely constipated again. Why?
Withdrawal symptom: Nicotine has a stimulating effect on intestinal transit. Constipation is a common during nicotine withdrawal. This symptom will gradually decline during the first 1-2 months of quitting. Meanwhile, you should also make sure that you have an adequate intake of fluids, (1 1/2 liters/day). You may need fiber based laxative. Please keep trying. Smoking will kill you, constipation won't. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Was a smoker for 2 months where i smoked 4 cigs a day. Now i quit smoking day 3 cold turkey, any tips on how to continue?
Distract yourself: You were a light smoker, but could still be dependent on nicotine. Plus the daily routine of having a cigarette can be habit-forming - a psychological way to keep you doing it. The key is to teach yourself to get through the day. Cravings can be like hunger pains - wait awhile and they go away! so, make a list of things you can do instead of smoke. If it's hard, nicotine gum or lozenge can help. ...Read more
