I guess I'm back at day 1 every day.
I've managed to bum 3 or 4 puffs from my husband every day and that's with the Champix.
I do OK when I get up (except today), and then sometime in early afternoon or evening it hits me. I get extreme tension, irritability, impatience and a feeling as if I'm imprisoned in my body, thus the "fight or flight" sets in. I don't know what causes it but I become beside myself and that's when I bum a drag (I get him to light a smoke for me).
I won't tell you my story as it's long. Suffice it to say I'm recovering from triple pneumonia (Type A viral, H1N1 viral and bacterial). :eek:
I finally went back to work again two weeks ago but I am still under a spe******ts care as I have a partially collapsed lung (small part) and the pneumonia still shows on my x-ray although I'm not actively ill anymore. I did lose a lot of weight (coming back fast) and a lot of strength though.
Which brings me to my quitting issue. When I have a craving I don't have the energy to burn it off by walking or other excercise. Gaaaahhhh! And as you can tell from the above, I HAVE to quit smoking. :mad:
Thanks for any advice / thoughts you may share.
