Pain when quitting smoking?
Is it normal that ones throat hurts, the chest feels like it is filled with wasps and the stomache rebells against what you eat when one stops smoking?

And when does it end? Or is there worse to come?

Throat and chest I can say yes to, withdrawal is a bitch.

The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

This can be normal, yes. How long have you quit and how much have you been smoking daily? Check your BP and see a doctor if the pain feels too unbearable.

This is a timeline to show what could be going on. It looks like at every moment your lungs are relaxing, changing and increasing volume, I wouldn't doubt that it could sting like you describe. Tar and other chemicals are clearing out and the fresh internal flesh can be 'raw'.

Good for you for quitting! Mmm, fresh air!

When all that gunk starts letting go (so you can cough it out) it can tear it up a bit. And if you are doing a lot of coughing that could strain muscles too.

The timelines helped me to quit because I could see I was making progress even though the beginning makes you feel like shit from coughing, withdrawals, etc.

It's so worth it.
