Just thought I would share this with you to remind us all why we are giving up the weed! I've not been around for a while as I spent a little time at Hotel Royal Hallamshire last week on the Neurology ward.
While I was there a young woman was wheeled in. She had undergone the most horrendous operation (not sure what is was) but she had a metal cage on outside of her breast bone holding the inside together. The poor woman was in so much pain, unable to eat and struggling to walk or sit and on a drip! One hour after being brought onto he ward she disappeared, 20 minutes later a call was received on the ward. She had gone for a fag and was unable to make her way back to the ward! The nurses advised her not to smoke anymore! She had been given patches to help with the craving. Half an hour later a woman from a ward further down, carrying her cathatar bag in hand and wheeling her own drip, came with a wheelchair to take the chest lady with her to go for a fag. I have never seen such a sight as these two disappearing every hour or so in their pj's and wheeling drips to travel the 10 floors to the ground floor reception and out the doors to feed the addiction!
For any of you out there struggling with withdrawals and doubting your decision to quit please, please don't give in. Self loyalty is something to be so proud of. Keep going and enjoy your good health, it's very precious. Love to you all
