Feeling good!

I found this forum last Tuesday, I had just returned from an appointment with a cessation clinic and I was feeling very down hearted. I was on day 3 and feeling that I really needed support.

It's Saturday now, so that makes it DAY 7 now. I can't thank everyone enough for all the messages and encouragement,

I don't feel alone and I really believe I can do it this time

Today was good again. I do feel tired and not quite myself at the moment but I know it will be worth it. It already is. My sense of smell is back (phoo I can smell smokers now, and they don't smell too good!!!!!!) My sense of taste is back and chocolate taste so lovely at the moment, so that's good.

Don't want to boast but I've had a few compliments about my complection and even I can see it.

Some things, like not being able to concentrate, tiredness, and other minor

aggrevations are there but I believe that I'm over the worst of it now.

EBT girl, keep posting, let's stay strong together 'cos I know we can do it.
