I had the same thing when I gave up smoking. My BP had been high for over 20 years and after giving up smoking it went down to normal. I put the light headed feeling down to the lower BP and higher oxygen levels. For over 20 years my BP was around 180/105 which is ridiculous, especially with a pulse pressure of 80, double a normal value. I'm surprised all my blood vessels didn't burst. My Doctor used to just say "oh its nothing to worry about, it's in your genes". After about three months, things started to feel more normal again.
It may have nothing to do with your smoking, but that habit does seem to affect some bodys much more than others. I don't know why I got short of breath, maybe it's because my body was used to much higher blood pressure feeding oxygen to the muscles?
