17 days and my face is falling off....well sort of!!

:D

okay bit over dramatic, still no fags, things are getting easier, i still think about fags probably 20 times a day or more but only for a fleeting second and i dont seem to be getting that gutsy pang sort of feeling!

Champix is driving me up the wall, have been taking berroca once a day plus a zinc booster, i work with children sometimes and last saturday at work thought i had a cold sore (only ever had one in my life), by sunday it was worrying large and weeping a bit (sorry if your'e eating!), by monday at work I was affectionately painted with a red cross by my nursing team and given a bell to ring to warn anyone in my path of my impending arrival. Went to the quacks and guess what!!!

IVE GOT BLOODY IMPETIGO!!!

IM 34 for gods sake!!!!!!! not some snotty schoolboy!!! gp reckons immune system may be suffering and where as id normally shrug off a strep (bacteria) attack from the little bas---ds , Whoops i mean darling poorly children...ahemmm, this time the little shits have got me well and truly!

I now look like i have a soggy ginger nut attached to my face...........am off work!!!!! have been bored at home all day, had quite a few cravings........

So am heading for 35

have quit smoking

have gained a good 1/2 stone now at day 17 though that is down to alcohol not munchies I think!

I have a face that even my mother laughed at!! (ols school matron!!!, bloody charming, i think its revenge for when i went to see her after she had her hip op and sat on her drain by mistake and couldnt stop laughing!!!)

IM OLD FAT , GAY AND NOW HIDEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL you really have got to laugh! 8 weeks ago i was a gym bunny, tanned, puffin on a cig in a nightclub and now look............................................................... baldrick from blackadder

least im not smoking!!!!

hope ive made a few of you laugh! it really does get easier and if i can cope with today with no fags am pretty confident I can cope with most things!!!!

I would laugh but my face would crack.....................literally

  • LMAO - wellllllllllllllllllllllll done!! You are still NOT SMOKING! You deserve a round of applause for your outstanding achievement!

    cuddlecards.com/ccpics/bear...

    P.S. - how's the face?

    oh yes just remember when you return back to work...

    I love my children, I love my children, I looooovvveee my children! :o

  • Your post certainly gave me a laugh! However bad the circumstances, if a bit of humour can be thrown around it's got to be better than no humour, serious, weepy flippin depression!

    Referring to a bunch of children like that is fine, but if someone called one child that - it's a no no! Exactly the same as saying "I love children" - great, but if someone told me they loved MY child I'd think they were a bit strange.

    Keep the humour coming Chris - good luck with the quit and zit!

    My comment was meant as in convincing yourself (to yourself, in ones head)that you love the children.

    But in all fairness, if my child was in daycare, I would want the staff to love MY child as they would their own niece or nephew. If they didn't love my child they may not treat them the same as they would treat a child that they did love. Again, everyone has a different opinion.

  • Can we concentrate on the humour (that's if we can concentrate at all!!).

    I see a TV sketch in which a quitting smoker stands outside a club just to inhale other peoples smoke!

    Another sketch.....same scenaro.....quitting smoker is shaking a collecting box at non-smoking passers by.....collecting for HM Governmt, as smokers are already contributing!

    Oh well...........perhaps my dry, dark humour is a result of my circumstances!

  • I did find humor in what was said! :)

  • Haha Chris your post made me crack up love good luck with the impetigo, not a nice add on for giving up your fags.....hope all is going well.

    I dont know if any of these other peeps here have or work with children on a regular basis but wake up and smell the coffee, dont be so politicaly correct, all kids can be little B*****ds from time to time, and there parents were and there parents before them, it is fact..... anyone who thinks there child is a little angel wants to think again. I love my children and am pleased to say they are kind and charming kids to be around. Put them in a playground or area with another 20 children and watch them change.......also fact.

    I wish everyone a Happy Newyear, keep up the good work :) day 34 and still no smoking, its a champix miracle..........

  • lo dred x x

    Welcome and grats!! 1 month down! rock on!!

    Oh and my kids are perfect angels so I make you wrong there :rolleyes:

    Hehehehehe ROFL that was my attempt at sarcastic humour by the way :D
