Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

Sweat, warmness, uncomfortable feeling, nausea, diziness and feeling of faintness are all symptoms which needs to be addressed with concern and your previous history of such troubles scruitinized. But these symptoms are also associated with anxiety.

You started fearing that your habit of smoking will cause you trouble and you want to stop it. You become anxious whenever you smoke and become restless because you cannot leave the habit. These are anxiety symptoms also.

Therefore first consult a generl practioner to rule out any physical causes nd then consult a psychologist to treat anxiety. I can help you if you desire so.

Get well soon.
