Day 6 and feeling great!!

Day 6 for me today so im back at the clinic tomorrow to collect my next stint of patches, I cant wait to go and have my CO2 tested knowing full well I haven't touched a cig since stopping, no smoker ville here I come!!

I have to say that I feel absolutely great today, I have a warm feeling of achievement low in my belly and my energy levels are so high! higher than ever before! I do actually go to the gym 3 times a week already but feel i need to go again tonight to burn away all this pent up energy lol

I feel sharper too, my mind feels like its working correctly again, I just cant believe the cigs have such an adverse effect on you! its truly staggering!

Will update in another week

    Hi Matski

    You sound really posistive and so you should you have done brilliant so far and long may it continue look forward to your next update :)

  • Thanks Bradders,

    I had no idea posting on a forum about smoking could be so helpful but it really is! the support from everyone so far has been brilliant!

    How are you feeling after 4 months?

  • Hi Matt

    Those are some great benefits your feeling so soon. I'm envious, but in a good way of course.

    Your wife must be feeling greatly supported and bolstered by you quitting too.

    All the best, to both of you

    Pol

    ps Now send some of that excess energy my way please ;)

  • Hi Pol

    Thanks buddy, to be honest I don't know if its down to the no smoking as it does seem very early to be feeling the benefits? I just cant think its anything else as nothing else has changed?

    I did however make a curry last night laced in jalapenos lol maybe they are the culprit! if so ill gladly send you some :D

    Oh we should swap left overs....... I made lovely Green Thai chicken curry last night, and a little hotter than green typically is.

    It does seem early for the benefits but hey, who cares the reason, it's all good and of benefit to mind and body :cool:

  • Hi there!

    Keep it up, things can only get better, and you will feel more and more benefits as time goes on. You cant lose at this game eh? win win win! :p hurrah!
