On Saturday, Dec 2nd I came down with the flu. I was aching all over, couldn't get comfortable, fever and all the common symptoms of the flu. It's now the 11th and while my fever is gone and I am able to eat and have no more body aches, I still am feeling tired.
NOW...prior to having the flu I have been a smoker, but since I got the flu on the 2nd I have not had one single cigarette. The other 2 people in the house smoke, but I have full out quit smoking the second that I knew that I had the flu.
I am still feeling tired, not dizzy but a little light headed, and I am still coughing. Is this because I still have the flu, or is it because my body is detoxing from smoking. I started smoking when I was 14 and I am 34 now. The doctor suggested that I stop smoking when I got the flu, now it disgusts me to even smell smoke. So I know that I am not going to ever again.
I am actually doing A LOT better. 28 days later and I still am not smoking! The cough is gone, and the light-headiness is also gone. Still having the cravings and everything, and I constantly want to eat. Is that one of the symptoms of quitting smoking? I know fatigue is, and I am going through that.View Thread
