I was just wondering if anyone else suffers from acne since their quit began. I have had the occasional pimple but since giving up I feel like a teenage kid. (and I didn't suffer from acne then!!!!)
The other thing was, who can tell me how nicotine use masks other problems and what kind of problems can they be?
Nicotine free for:
One week, one day, 9 hours, 59 minutes and 36 seconds. 126 cigarettes not smoked, saving $37.87. Life saved: 10 hours, 30 minutes.
I just wanted to let you know, you're not alone with the zit fest! I had a break-out session early in my quit, too. It did go away in about a week, though. I can't give a medical reason for it, but I attributed it to toxins working their way out. I also tried to make sure that I wasn't touching my face out of stress, because that makes me break out sometimes even now!
As for other stuff, I think there's some great threads up for you now, and if you have something specific to ask about, be specific! We're here for you!
You're doing great!!!
It will get better and better and easier and easier - hang in there!
Wishing you another smoke-free day! And hopefully soon, a zit-free one, too!
Peace, Love and Fresh Air-
4 and a half months of healing and freedom
