Although I've never smoked, I know smokers that have stopped cold turkey after many, many years; and I know smokers that have an ongoing struggle. What seems to be helpful are solutions to help your mind let go of the need. It sounds like you've tried to treat the physical affects alone. Have you thought of a healthy hobby that you'd practice on a regular basis? I have a friend who practices yoga and other calming exercises. Have you tried any of these distracting, calming activities?

Do you have any outlets for getting your mind off of the symptoms and need to smoke and more focused on your bodies health? A long walk might do the trick if you are not into something a little more cardiovascular.

I haven't smoked before but have friends who smoked in college and quit when they found out they were pregnant. They were forced to quit cold turkey and were able to be successful just by distracting themselves from the need and desire to smoke. Of course, there are patches and medication to help you be successful. Thanks for your question. I am sure you are not the only one battling this! It is a huge issue. Anyone have some advice?

The withdrawal timeline for tobacco smoking is around two weeks, while the withdrawal timeline for marijuana smoking is about the same though the most severe symptoms may peak at different times. Psychological withdrawal can last much longer than physical withdrawal. You may be triggered when confronted with people you used to smoke with, or a particularly stressful situation, for instance. 

After four months, however, it seems like whatever you are experiencing should no longer be the result of withdrawal. I would speak to my doctor if I were you, just to make sure any mental or physical needs you have are addressed.

I'm currently going through almost everything you stated. My worst things are the insomnia and I am having some minor breathing difficulties (feels like when you have a cold and your sniffly). I stopped almost exactly a month ago. I had an anxiety disorder prior to starting smoking. I actually have heard several times smoking can worsen your condition.

Anyways week 3 was the hardest for me, and there have now been two times where everything was almost completely back to normal for a few days, then i'll be slammed back into it and the anxiety multiplies it even further. I know it's in my head as I have very good control over my conscious mind, but my subconscious I have been unable to control, I just try to keep my mind off of it and the symptoms wane.

It really sucks honestly I have broken my fibula twice and thats the extent of my med problems. I would rather someone take a chainsaw and cut off my leg. Atleast that happens and then it is done. This is a slow, dull, chronic pain, on 24 hours a day. One symptom subsides and another takes right over. When I am in my right mind I can rationalize it all and its bearable but when im not, its the worst pain ive ever experienced.

Stay strong, alot of it is in your head. Try not to care or pay attention.
