Into week 3 now and I feel better and better each day. To be honest, I cannot see myself smoking ever again.
My lungs are clearing out a lot of crap at the moment. I know its a disgusting thing to talk / think about but does anyone know how long it takes the lungs to clear out all the crap thats been put in there over the past 25 years. I read somewhere that there is about half a cupful of tar in a heavy smokers lungs .... and it takes 10 years to fully clean. I read that exercising does not help clear the lungs.
Was also wondering if the damage done to arteries repairs itself - e.g. thinkening walls and thinning vessels. My circulation seems to be a lot better but again, I was wondering if there is anything I can do to help - e.g. eat something or exercise more?
Realise it is still early days yet but I am determined to get the recovery process underway as soon as possible. Feel that I want to make up for lost time.
