I have no advice as I am still a smoker....Shame on me, I know...As no one should be smoking, I am REALLY stupid for smoking as I was in respitory failure a few years back, and suffered damage to my lungs. They told me back then that if I started to smoke again (which I did 4 years later) it could literally kill me...I started anyways...Stress, illness, family stress, money stress...all mitigating factors, but YES stupid nonetheless.
I give you a lot of credit for quitting...it is not easy...but Im proud of you!!! Hang in there. Im not sure about the stress factor of quitting starting a flare, but maybe you could get some meds to keep your neves down? Or that new Cymbalta? (though I hears some TERRIBLE things about that medicine - BAD depression apparently)
Either way, I wish you the best..I felt so much better the four years I didnt smoke...I have to quit eventually soon as well...
