I used to smoke alot. Its been years since I have. It took me many times to quit. I can assure you its not easy and it does make you anxious and frustrated but in the long run, when you are finally smoke free you will be proud of yourself, it will be easier to get up in the morning, things will smell better to you and your health in general will improve, you will have alot more energy etc. Note, this will not happen in one week of quitting etc but it takes a while.
My dp comes and goes but I cant say quitting made it worse actually I could breath alot easier when the pressure starts.
You can do it. If you need any help feel free to contact me. Good choice!
I have been there, like I said, it is VERY hard but when you finally do it it will have been worth a few panic attacks etc no matter how bad that sounds becuase you will feel alot stronger that you finally beat the habit Its not easy and trust me there are still days after so many years of quitting that I think how I would BEG someone for a cigarrette , it comes and goes and so far I havent fell off the wagon.

Good luck to anyone trying to quit, it is hard but will make you feel so much better you just have to take it one day at a time, reward yourself for each day without a drag and eventually even though you think you wont, you will do it.
