Hi I recently quit smoking 12 of December (had few days where i smoked again) to be exact, i used to smoke 20mg hybrid nic salts(which is the strongest vape juice you can get on the market for the uk market) and basically i have started to have panic attack symptoms which are really bad i was wondering if anyone has any advice for me as i am considering to smoke again to get rid of the attacks that are happening .
You should ask your doctor to be on the safe side but from what I’ve read on the forum using nicotine patch or other aids may help. From what I understand, this way it’s not so abrupt- you are weaning. Use the magnifying glass on top and search for aids. NRT, I believe it’s called.
Under menu them under discussion scroll down and there’s “quit aids.” Hit that and there’s topics of discussions on this. That may help
I'd like to echo what gkim had to say- consult with a physician soon. If you think about it, vaping won't cure the issue. It will only postpone the inevitable, because you'll try to quit again. I use a patch and I normally have a lot of anxiety, but I think the patch helps me a lot with that. Granted, I do go therapy to help with my anxiety, so there's that. Keep us posted!
Thank you. I will certainly be booking in a appointment with a doctor.
The nicotine is a big part of the panic attacks to begin with and I think it makes sense they get worse as you go through withdrawals. It is important to remember that nobody ever died from stopping nicotine. You may feel like you are going to in moments, but each time you go through one, you will get a little stronger. I highly recommend starting in the tab that is called January 2021 New Ex Smokers Start Here and start reading and learning about the addiction and everything that goes with it. Arm yourself with knowledge about what is happening and you feel a little more control. You can do this. It is a rough road, but there is a lot of good support here.
