It's all healing.

Thanks for bumping :o) this is my favorite post... the one that got me through...
A big THANK YOU to Duffis for writing it.  After reading this post and I stopped feeling sorry for myself and accepted that quitting smoking wasn't a punishment but a gift.  It made a big difference in my quit.

I'm a quitter !!!!

I love Next Tuesday almost as much as I love Wednesdays!   This, in my opinion, is one of the best postings I've read here!  Tough love, but words that I needed to hear when I first quit!  Thanks for bumping!

I also experienced huge headaches. If you are a coffee ,black tea or cola drinker and you suspended it, this can make your'
headaches be more acute; If youy are uswed to drink a lot of caffeine, just lower your dose, don't suspend it; you will experience also the caffeibe whitdrawl symptoms.
   Rest, take hot showers, and drink lots of ice water; most of the headaches are caused by dehidration! Take a b complex vitamin and some tylenols!

Don't do it! Your withdrawals are normal and it will get easier with time I promise.
 
Headaches are the result of increased blood flow to your brain. They may occur in the first or second week of your quit and last for a few weeks. If this symptom persists or is not relieved by typical pain relievers, please consult your MD.
 
To help avoid these headaches, you may want to avoid caffeinated drinks and add relaxion techniques to your daily routine.
 
Just stick with it.  The only way to stop your withdrawals for good is to not smoke.
 
Stay strong.
 
Ashley
