Is this the right place


Hello everybody,

Today is 1 calender month, When I quit I never dreamed I would get this far I have to say I have had some really nasty days but they seem to be getting fewer as time goes by, I had a great start today my husband remembered how long I had quit and woke me with a coffee and little present to congratulate me, A lovely pair of ear rings bless him, I think I might have cracked this smoke free thing:D:D

WOW 1 whole month smoke free is great well done

I'm glad the bad days are fewer and they will get even less as you go on

What a lovely hubby you have, little things like that make a huge difference

Getting close to your month!!

Hey congrats on the quit thing. It is fab that you feel you are beating this. I am on day 17 of my quit and feel proud that I have got this far. But like you it has been bad along the way. I have had sore gums, tongue, and sensistive teeth. My gums are still bleeding and at first this really worried me. I have been to doc for chest xray, sputum test and complete blood count. All came back normal. I guess my gums are just 'thanking' me for giving up the smokes. It's taken me a while to stop worrying about my gums as I was convinced I had cancer!!!!! I guess that is part of the anxiety levels soaring thro the roof. I look forward to calmer days ahead, with clean hair, skin, nails and fresh breath. Keep up the good work and do NOT give in to that filthy little 'two-faced' friend. He is only out to kill us all. You have done 4 weeks roll on the next four!!:cool:

You have every right to be proud of yourself

Thanks Margareth

I am glad to have found this forum as just reading that others are going thro the same is comforting. I decided a few weeks back that I was gonna quit as I knew that I was killing myself slowly. I have to admit that the website scared the pants off me. I had never really ever thought of younger folks my age dying with lung cancer etc. I had always thought that I was in my 30s and therefore had a while to go before lung cancer might kill me. When I read some of the personal stories on that site I stoppped immediately. And I really don't want to smoke anymore. In fact I know if I was to go out and have a 'sneaky' cig right now I would be devastated that I had lost this battle and given in. I am so totally NOT giving in to this. :p:p:p


Thanks to you too Jim

Oops sorry Jim I never saw your answer til I had already answered. But thanks so much for the posts will go read now. Yeah the gum thing had me so very very upset. I really thought it was throat cancer. As a result I have been very stressed etc. But I know it's my gums. How long will it last for?


Hi, I had that also. My dentist recomended gingival. Its some natural gel that helps maintain and heal gums. Works a treat! Mine were a nightmare until a few weeks ago when I got this stuff. Dentist gave them a healthy pink bill of health last week!
