Well, here I am entering day 3. This is the furthest I have got for quite awhile so a very good sign!
Have not been too bad really. Had the odd moment when I went to do something on Sunday which I associated with smoking & felt a bit lost. Just a matter of breaking those associations now.
Day 2 yesterday at work was so so. Cannot smoke at work so used to smoke like a trooper before, have between 2 & 4 at lunch then obviuosly when I finished. I was ok lunch time but have to say I was really in need of one by home time. I would get in the car & light up immediately! Instead I took a few deep breaths before I drove off
Positive things noticed so far:
1) My cough is already nowhere as bad as it was. A long way to go with that of course but I have noticed the difference. My breathing also seems easier.
2) Without even thinking about it I seem to have more energy. Twice yesterday I ran up the stairs at work where normally I trudge slowly & painfully. Have to say I was breathless at the top because of my COPD but the fact that I did without thinking was good for me
3)I didn't get any cramps yesterday but that may just be a coincidence.
4) It was so nice to be driving without the window open a little & having a freezing cold hand lol.
I am using patches & lozenges agin this time as I know they have worked for me in the past.
Have a good day everyone, lets put another one under our belts ;)
