It is wonderful that you quit smoking. That is probably the best thing you could ever do for yourself.
I agree with what the others have said. We all experience different things when we quit, as our bodies begin the process of healing. We smoked for years, so we can't expect our bodies to get back to normal right away. It all takes time, and your body has to adjust to this new normal, meaning no more smoke and no more chemicals. But you were smart to see your doctor, if for no other reason than to keep him apprised of what you are going through. Remember, from this point forward, if and when you get sick with anything, it will be much easier for your body to fight against it now that you don't smoke. Honestly, it makes such a difference. Also, as a non-smoker, you will get more nutrients from the food you eat. It's a win-win situation.
Keep up the good work, poley. You are doing great, and you should be really proud of yourself.
