Today was one of the WORST days as far as quitting smoking is concerned. I didn't think I would survive the morning, much less the rest of the day. The effects are fading now, but this morning was horrible. My lungs felt burnt, it was hard to draw breath, I was just plain miserable. They still aren't up to their normal clarity, and as I type this I have a Class A migraine. Manageble, but only just. I'm not sure if its tree pollen or the quitting smoking effects.
My stomach decided to join the fun today as well, knotting and twisting and regularly making a nusiance of itself. It felt at one point like someone had stabbed me with a hot poker right below my stomach. Since I slept most of the day, that didn't last too long. The twisting was still there this afternoon though, and it still shows up now and again randomly. Might have something to do with all the coughing I'm doing. That's not usually good for stomach muscles.
