Yeah, I too realized not many of my friends were as supportive or understanding as i thought they would be. I spoke out loud to myself an awful lot the first 3 weeks. That really helped to just vocalize my withdrawal and struggle.and I posted a ton on this site. Headaches, sweats, shortness of breath, pounding heart, crawling skin, thirst, you name it i felt it going through my withdrawals. First week is hell, 2nd week is heck, after that it gets much better.
For me it was my 19 year old son who started smoking that made up my mind to quit. We quit together. Amazing what kids will make us want to do for them.
6 days in...you're probably noticing some smell and taste improvements, maybe even a bit of increased lung activity going up the stairs (although the stents probably helped too!).
