I have recently decided to quit smoking. My first night was extremely restless either due to Nicorette or withdrawal symptoms of Nicotine.
I have never had any occurrence of sleep apnea that I am aware of.
I would get to sleep, but wake up with a gasp, after realizing that I had stopped breathing. I was exhausted, and it was easy for me to get back to sleep, but it seemed as soon as I fell asleep, I would gasp and wake myself up again. Does this sound like sleep apnea?
Is this a normal effect of either Nicorette or Nicotine withdrawals?
I left smoking after 50 years(In between I might have stopped smoking for total of six months.
I am 78.I have completed 3rd year as a non smoker.I take 1 mg of alprozalam for sleep. sleep apnea may not be related to smoking.I has soem urge sto smoke for few days
I never developed sleep apnea.sleep apnea may not be related to nicotine withdrawal.
