I regulary started smoking a few months ago, going through 1-2 packs a week.

Recently, I've started having problems with dizziness, lightheadedness and a feeling of fullness in my heart area whenever I smoke a cigarette.

Not sure why that's happening. Quitting cold turkey starting now for the sake of my health.

Be glad that you've only been smoking for a couple of months and only smoke 1 - 2 packs a week. Best to figure out now that it is not a good thing for you to continue. Took me 10 years of smoking, at my most 1+ a day to finally quit. Good luck!

Why did you start smoking so late in life, assuming you're an adult? I started when I was 11 out of curiosity. I quit 5 years ago. Maybe adults get curious too.
