Its day 2 with no fags and I feel great. Im on Champix and seeing a great hypnotist Andrew (thanks) and also going to my stop smoking sessions.
Ive also just joined you lot.
I want to stop because its going to kill me. I cough in the morning and I cant walk up hills. I want to go walking in the lake district again (I tried earlier this year and had to make an excuse that my boots hurt but really it was my lungs then I sat in the car for 4 hours smoking while the rest of my family went on). I want to walk my 2 lovely dalmations over the Cheshire countryside without stopping for a fag and then turning back cos im coughing.
I want to live my life without panicking because I havent got any fags and I want to kiss my husband of 35 years and know I smell as good as he does and I also want to see my 5 grandchildren get married and as Im only 52 and the oldest ones 12 I might even become a great grandmother. And to top it all on the 1st of October I am having a boob reduction & tummy tuck and I want to look 10 years younger.
The good news is after only 4 days on Champix I didnt feel like a fag and from 35+ a day I had dropped to 6 and on that day I had my carbon reading it had dropped from 30 to 10, under 5 being a non smoker that gave me the push to stop before the date I had to.
So here I am day 2 and feeling positive, my hypnotist helped me loads last night and I walked the dogs this morning and didnt cough, my skin looks better and Im holding on to that dream of standing on top of Skiddaw and breathing fresh air with my new boobs a flat tummy and a glint in my eye.
