Day four

Wow, I'm on day four! Still feel very dizzy (which is good, this is all the extra oxygen reaching my brain!). ;)

Sometimes I still feel snappy, sometimes I feel a bit low but yesterday something happened: I was reaching for something in my handbag and I realised that the bag really stinked of cigarettes!

Oh my god, so it's true that smokers "smell like ashtrays"! and with my new-and-improved sense of smell I could smell that!

This was a great lesson and a great confidence-booster. If I have another craving I'll think of the handbag and its (awful) smell!

Thanks for listening, this is a great forum and it really helps to share!

Hi Silviam66

Well done for getting to day four. Know what you mean about the smell My partner stopped then went back on them Now it is awfull the smell and I am sure he is smoking much more hehe Keep Up the good Work Lindaxxx


Isn't it wonderful to be able to smell again. My sniffer isn't back 100% and I don't think it ever will be but I can smell things that I haven't smelled in years! I don't have to sleep with a fan in my face anymore either because I breathe so much easier. 3 MORE DAYS AND I WILL BE MARRIED......EEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK :eek: :eek: :eek:



Congrats Cindy

Ah silviam! i had the same thing!!

I noticed my bag smelling too lol

Guess what I did?

I went spent my saved ciggies monies on a new bag :D

I still get that through things now, i got on a coach today it was non smoking but I could smell this old stale smoke smell. Is it the smokers that have a trailing smell?

I bought out some of last years summer clothes stored away for the kids and i could smell smoke on them! even though they were washed before stored, i smoked last year and i could smell it!

You are doing so well !! keep it up x
