Our expert says:
You've been smoking for a lifetime so you should expect feeling uncomfortable going cold turkey. It won't last long.
Hypertension is not a known side-effect of smoke cessation. In fact, high blood pressure is often linked to smoking and not to stopping this unhealthy addiction.
However, should you feel uncertain about this, we suggest that you speak to your GP about your hypertension.
If Zyban didn't work for you, stay away from it. Many people succeed without Zyban.
We would also suggest that you connect with people in your area who have managed to quit cigarettes. It might be an option to start a support group.
Best of luck.
