Going for it again

Quite a surprise I am here today, I have been suffering chest pains through smoking (I don't think I have had a heart attack or anything) since the beginning of the week last night was very painfull so this morning I started the patches was not planning to its a spur of the moment thing.

This is the second time of trying to quit got down to stage 3 of them last time I think if I remember rightly I did about 3-4months quit but after alot of stress and my hubby still smoking I cracked. Family life was not good teenager problems with my daughter arguments, I could not cope ended up seeing a councilor (sp?) If you read the few posts that I posted last time you will understand how hard I felt it.

Also the nurse at the doctors who was supporting me with the patches the first time I quit actually advised me to start smoking again because I was was not dealing very well with the quit. ( not very motivational)

My hubby started the patches yesterday due to himself being very weezy.

I am also trying to lose weight I know I am going to find it hard to control the two vices.

Heres hoping, as of today I have got cravings but it is dealable at the moment.

    I feel fine other than the effects of smoking, as a sensible level headed person, the effects I am feeling is down to being a 20 aday smoker (breathing congested) since I was 16 I am now 36. I feel very well otherwise. Also since not having a cigarette now since 9pm last night my chest pain seems to be easing. I did say in my post that I did not think it was a heart attack or anything like that if I did I would get myself checked out. The pain I was feeling was when I lay down or moved not constant pain.

    Although I am not a doctor and there could be many possibilities other than smoking. I am sure my doctor's first advice to me would be to quit smoking so that is what I did.

    If symptons persist however I will seek advice immediatly.

    But I do thankyou for your concern
