Hello brothers and sisters. Day 27 for me today. Over the past couple of days, been feeling a little punch drunk. The fog i guess. Not sleeping well. Tongue and gums still a little irritated. Little red dot appeared on the inside of my cheek. Just venting here.
Keep venting and keep quitting. Rest assured that what you're going through is completely normal. The fog lingers. Your mouth will continue to heal. The chemical composition of your mouth is changing so it is very common to get new sores after you quit. That said, we always recommend you make an appointment with a dentist and tell them you quit dip. They'll give it a good look-over. An all clear from a dentist is a beautiful and peaceful thing.

I quit 45 days ago and this week have had heart flutters, it's scaring the crap out me...Anyone else experience this in their quit?

Hey BigSmoove,

Total Bad Ass going 45 days on your own.  Heart palpitations can most definitely be associated with nicotine withdrawals.  They usually only last 3-4 weeks.  I'm sure yours are nothing to worry about, but you should still have it checked by a physician nonetheless.

If you would like to get support for quitting nicotine, you should join the January 2020 Pre-HOF Quit Group.  There you will post your promise to remain nicotine free each day, keep that promise throughout the day and come back to repeat the process every day.  You will also be able to get to know your fellow quitters in that month and others, building the bonds of brotherhood as you all hold each other accountable.
@BigSmoove77  I had "heart flutters" for years. Never associated then with quitting...but now I associate then with nicotine. I used to take a Rx for them. Now they are completely gone. I believe they subsided around a year ago...maybe a bit longer. I am 1709 days quit, so that would be about 3 to 4 years quit.

Thanks Chewie. I might try both and see what works. IMO that’s a good combination to help ease the anxiety

Has anyone tried Jake's CBD pouches?
Haven't tried the Jake's versions, but I have tried the Teaza variety CBD Plus: https://www.killthecan.org/cbd-plus-herbal-pouches-review/

The folks from Jake's told me the CBD pouches taste identical to their regular chews. https://www.killthecan.org/now-available-jakes-mint-chew-cbd-straight-mint-pouches/

Accountability is a statement of personal promise, both to yourself and to the people around you, to deliver specific defined results.
Brian Dive

Do not be complacent about your achievements and not to strive for continual improvement when you get to the top. As soon as you let success go to your head, you sink into following familiar patterns and play it safe. In other words, you risk losing your edge.
Roy T. Bennett

You need anything, ask.  You feel strong, help.  This quit is for you but we got your back.

One more thing before I call it a night. Someone needs to explain this troat pain. When I went to the Dr. and the Dentist, they did not see any redness or irritation that would cause a sore throat. Most of the day today,  it didn’t bother me or I wasn’t paying much attention. Then it began to slightly bother me. Can anyone explain.
@Tcisneros I'm going to go ahead and tell you right now (masters in healthcare and going to MD school in 3 months) that what you are experiencing with the mall panic attacks and the obsessing over physical symptoms and pains of your body and making them worse is 99% chance ANXIETY and that is all. Especially if you got checked out and it was fine. And it is COMPLETELY NORMAL to experience the hell out of it when you lose your coping mechanism called nicotine. Recognize it is anxiety and it CANT hurt you at all, and you aren't any weaker of a badass for getting it. And as soon as you start recognizing it for what it is then you will no longer be afraid of it. Anxiety never killed anyone, the symptoms always pass. You got this and keep posting daily! You're doing great. (PS I USED TO GET EXTREME ANXIETY when I quit my tobacco the 1st time and I remember it well, and yes I said the first time. Dont get complacent and fail with the "I can have one dip" mentality years later)

Gotta tell you. The suck really sucks. At the mall today with the family when it hit me. I felt my breathing increase, started to feel nauseous, muscles around my throat started twitching. Freaked me out. Finally got outside to fresh air. Made a difference. Took Tylenol pm to get some rest tonight. Will post in the morning. Let you guys know how I feel.

13days and still here. Today was a tough one. Headache, felt a little anxious. At one point my chest felt a little weird. Throat, tongue, and gums are still a little irritated. I’m pretty tired, no getting good sleep. Just venting here. Will post roll in the morning.
Yep. Very common symptoms. They suck, but we tell everyone to embrace the suck. That suckiness is just weakness leaving the body. You will come out stronger on the other side. Meanwhile, vent away and keep making and honoring that promise not to use nicotine today.
