Good morning everyone,
I'm trying to everyday take a positive approach to my quit and find a a benefit (no matter how small) to keep me motivated. Today my benefit is my teeth....
Even after 10 days I have noticed that my teeth are less stained and a little bit whiter....but not only that I don't feel the need to have to brush my teeth the minute I wake up.
As a smoker I would always have that horrible feeling in my mouth first thing in the morning. The disgusting fur on my teeth and the stench of the umpteen fags I had smoked the night before. I guess I just feel cleaner.
Day 9 was a tester though.....went shopping with my mother ha....and boy can she shop for Britain but she has never smoked. It was lovely to be able to sit and have a coffee with her and not have to nip outside for a fag and not to have to put up with her telling me i stink of fags all day ha.
BUT....the evening was tough. My bf and I were doing some jobs at home and moving some stuff about. I ended up putting my foot through the loft and now have a lovely big hole in my kitchen ceiling. In the past I would have reached for a ciggie but am proud to say that I still have not touched a cigarette since 31st August. Oh and the bf is back on the patches too completely of his own accord - result!!
