What a fantastic response I got from my introduction. I'm so glad everyone is out there....
Popsiesgirl - what an amazing story, almost identical to mine. Do you mind me asking how old you were / are? I had never tried to give up before although my husband had tried everything - last time was Champix.
I don't think he can contemplate giving up whilst I am being such a b!tch but hopefully in 2009 we will both be free.
So today was back to the GP. My blood tests were back and I still have problems with my liver - caused by the first dose of antibiotics. I got a sick note for another two weeks and then they may consider a phased back to work plan. The worst problem is when they listened to my back I'm still crackling which means the fluid is not going away yet. I seriously hope it does drain of it's own accord otherwise I think they have to operate to drain it for me. I'm due back at the hospital on Friday and they were hoping for the lungs to be clear - don't know if that is still a posibility given what the GP has said today.
Progress on the smoking front is that it was not the first thing I thought of this morning. I got out of the house both yesterday and today so I think the distraction has done me good. I am lucky that I'm not house bound as such but I cannot stay active for more than about 1 hour a day otherwise I'm shattered. I do wish I could eat things but the antibiotics make everything taste sour.
My biggest regret at the moment is that society has finally got me to conform!! I'm being GOOD. I've finally given up my last vice.....SO my quest tonight is to find another way of rebelling - the best idea I've got so far is to take up gambling. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
Today I would give 6/10 for not being cranky all day. I hope everyone else had a good day,
Take care & as always thanks for listening.
