4 Days After Quitting Smoking
Quit smoking march 7, 2013 after smoking for approx 12yrs. What benefits can I expect from quitting.
Smoking any tobacco product is harmful to your baby, including "light" cigarettes, cigars (and marijuana). Like any addiction, quitting tobacco is difficult, especially if you are acting alone. Most smokers find it hard to break all the habits or ties they've built into their lives around smoking. Quitting smoking does reduce a number of ...Read more
How long after?: If you just quit smoking very recently, the wheezing can come from the resultant increase in sputum production that occurs after the bronchial tree's mucociliary elevator starts up again (long story) and as such may stop after several weeks. However, the fear would be that emphysema has already set in, and this wheeze would be permanent, then. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: there are no reported cases of this ever happening. It generally takes decades of exposure to cigarette smoke to cause cancer of the lung, head and neck and other organs. I imagine in an individual with multiple other risk factors - strong family history, exposure to other carcinogens (like asbestos, coal dust etc.) that it might take less time - like one or two decades, rather than three or four ...Read more

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

I had quit smoking, i smoked 10 cigs in 1 day. Can i pass a nicotine/metabolite blood test 4 days later?
You should: Am not aware of people preferring blood tests to urine tests for cotinine, particularly since it can be found in blood only for a few hours after smoking, while it persists in urine for several days. In any case, testing should be negative 4 days later. More important than passing the test is actually quitting smoking, and taking care of your health. Please quit and stay quit! ...Read more
Yes!!!: Congratulations on quitting! back in june, a study was published demonstrating that the longer one stops smoking, the better.

No: I presume you are asking if smoking can prevent weight gain. Avoiding weight gain is used by many people as a justification for smoking. But you have to gain 100 pounds to have the same risks as smoking two packs a day. While you smoke less than this, there is no question that smoking is way worse for you than gaining even a few pounds. Please focus on quitting tobacco! ...Read more
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
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. Lucky you! keep going! stay tobacco free :-). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
