Symptoms of Nicotine Withdrawal - 49th Day
I'm 21 years old and I've been a user for 4 years. I go through 1 pack a day when I was working and I've done that for a year. Today is the 49th day of quitting smoking and the craving and addiction is gone. However, at times I lose my temper hurting people. I became emotionally violent when I can't control certain situation and I blow up on people without a second thought... since it's almost two months being nicotine free, is hard to say nicotine withdrawal is the source of my behavior, I do hope so and wish to get better.
I'm experiencing the worst break out of my life. Chronic nasal congestion, I haven't been breathing as well as I thought I should... Also indigestion and diarrhea is another crappy symptom. It's honestly not looking good at all.
To anyone deciding to quit or detox, you have to have a strong resolve... and if you're experiencing similar symptoms as I am then that should be more motivation for you to quit because you then realize how much damage it has done to your physical and emotional health. Cigarettes ain't nothing to mess with.
I'm going through with it, you decide yours.

Well done for sticking to your quitting smoking plan. Addictions are the worst to break. For some people it takes up to 12 weeks to feel semi-normal again and adjust to their new lifstyle without cigarettes.
I know the
withdrawal symptoms are stressful and uncomfortable but your reward is your improved health in the long term. I've seen this stated elsewhere and it sounds a bit silly but there's even a suggestion that quitters should plan a period of mourning over the loss of cigarettes and that it will help them get over the withdrawal depression. Some Quitting Smoking Tips are:
- Take an antioxidant supplement. Especially one with vitamin C. Infact taking 1000mg of vitamin C twice to three times a day will help to boost your immune system and rebuild tar damaged tissues.
- Don't allow yourself to get too angry. An angry mind will convince you that you need a cigarette to cope. This especially true if you are tired. Try to get enough sleep and stay calm and rested.
- Get some exercise to relieve stress, get your lungs stronger, fresh air circulating and keep you busy.
- If you would prefer natural remedies to try then homeopathic medicines have helped some people get through the withdrawal symptoms and help balance the body again. Get More Info on Triple Complex NicoTonic Tissue Salts for Withdrawal from Nicotine and Addictive Drugs

Here's an interesting observation: A European study found that the incidence of workplace accidents increases on No Smoking Day, a day in which up to 2 million smokers either reduce the amount they smoke or abstain altogether.
