Okay i quit cold turkey 12 days ago today smoking and dipping...twice now i have had this strange accurance happen. Twice now i have woke up with a horrible night sweat....i mean drenched from head to toe...this has never happened to me before but cant really pin it to my quiting even though i have noticed that it has happened twice since i quit smoking. I am 33 years old and started smoking when i was ten. but i know i am too damn young for menopause. but if you could get back to me that would be great

It does seem likely that the two things are related. You can get night sweats from other things besides hormones, and who knows, maybe tobacco does impact hormones also. (I don't see why it wouldn't impact all parts of the body.) Your body might also be cleansing itself of a lot of toxins. Take a shower and wash your sheets, you're going to smell sweeter and sweeter. Congrats on quitting one of the toughest addictions. You WON'T be sorry.
