Hello, These symtpoms are a result of your smoking rather than your trial at quitting. You will see the benefits of quitting one week into quitting. Your body starts recovering from the damages within weeks of giving up smoking. Lung function improve and cardiac risk factors comes down, please keep at it and do not get discouraged.
