I think one of the reasons i am in a such a good mood this morning is my physical health.
I play 5 a side football every week and have done for a year or so. (I used to play alot when i was younger but then got lazy - started again last year).
Every week i would have a cigarette on the way to the game and at least two on the way home and omg it was horrible - the wheezing and coughing and shortness of breath i would put myself through on the way home was ridiculous. I think the realisation of what i was doing to myself after football was one of the big motivations to stop.
Anyway the reason for my post is that i have now played twice since quitting. The first game - last week, i was pretty ordinary, probably carrying a few more pounds since Xmas and still only just clearing my lungs. But this week was completely different - i dont think i have played as well for years - i was able to run the whole hour, i was stronger, fitter, faster - it was amazing!! I am 35 and some of the lads i play with are in their early 20s - i was better than most of them!!! LOVED IT - cant wait for next week.
I really recommend exercise guys - is anyone else finding they can do more yet? I reckon its good for the soul and the mood and for proving to yourself giving up smoking is the best thing you can do! :D:D
