Hi! Congratulations on tapering! I hope I’m not too late answering you. I quit cold turkey 8 months ago after a 25 year pack a day habit and yes I was very dizzy/lightheaded for awhile. My blood pressure actually went up and down so maybe check yours? I’d imagine with having more oxygen in your body and a drug (nicotine) leaving that your body is going through changes and some kind of “shock.” I bought a BP cuff from walgreens so maybe check that out just to make sure it’s stable. But yes I was dizzy for a bit.
I'm chewing the **** out if the gum. Deep breathing.. it seems to go up and down. What I find helpful is noticing how much deeper my breath is.
I made a mistake and went to Walmart though earlier and I left before I killed half the people in there!!! This is my last vice and I'm just going to keep pushing! Thank you for responding!
I can tell you,, since I'm literally doing the same thing your doing right now, dizziness is normal! I am a pack and a half a day smoker for 40 years and I had to whopper nose bleeds about a month ago, literally one on a Sat and one on a Sun. Went to the dr the next day and my blood pressure was 157/130. I'm taking the Chantix and chewing the S&&T our of Nicorette!!! But I'm getting there. I do feel a bit insane as well but that could be the Chantix! I've withdrawn off of many things this one by far being the hardest! As of yesterday I'm at 4 a day so I'm going to stay here a couple of days then jump again. Good luck to you in reaching your goal...........WE CAN DO THIS!!!
