Default How many of you quit smoking? Were you suffering from insomnia?

Hi, I have a question for former smokers or those who tried to quit smoking for ones. Did you experience sleeping disorders during the first 2 weeks without cigarettes? I tried to quit cold turkey several times and every time I could sleep only 3-4 hours a night. The article on QuitSmokingCommunity says its a common withdrawal symptom, but I never heard from people I know about this, they more often complained about headache and nausea. If you faced the same, please, tell me how do you cope with this.

That's strange that going off a stimulant, nicotine, would cause insomnia.

It has been a very long time ago but I quit cold turkey after smoking four packs a day, my body didn't like it at all....just like a junky, quitting the smoke habit involves going thru withdrawal from nicotine to no nicotine that's why most people go back to smoking they crave nicotine. suffice it to say If you really mean to quit you will suffer one way or the other but not for ever it took me two plus years, now I can't stand being near smokers, quite frankly they stink. which was not obvious until I had quit for sometime. It was the hardest thing I have ever done but it beats lung cancer or the like, you got to hang tough. no I did not use the patch or such. put them down and don't look back. ......................good luck!

I was suffering from hunger, but likely everything was good with slipping.

My mother quit smoking three years ago and it seems to me that this was the most difficult period in our life because she had a lot of nervous breakdowns and I did not have the strength to endure it. She made more than five attempts and each time she started to smoke again. Moreover, during abstinence from smoking, she had very severe stress and insomnia. I was about 15 years old at that moment and I was very scared. My older brother decided to do everything possible to stop this terrible situation. He suggested our mom to use vape. At first, she was against it, but then she agreed and started smoking vape. We were surprised, but she stopped getting nervous and started to sleep well at night. She used very tasty nicotine liquids from https://www.aquavape.co.uk and the effect was just awesome. So vaping is a great idea.

Had about 8 months of insomnia when I stopped using Copenhagen, but it went away.
