Bad Morning

Day 3

Awful...feel like there are thousands of creepy crawlies running round my chest...

Cried to my hubby...not like me as I am not a crying sort of person...he has been wonderful so far...and goes out side in the shed for his fag

Feel very lightheaded...and woozy

on the plus side...

My sense of taste is coming back...my cuppa actually taste's nice...and my sense of smell is too...I can smell some washing drying and it smells lovely...

just wish the thought of the fags, would start going from my mind...

last puff...16.2.10

  • Hi Lindylou :D

    Whoaaaaaaaaaaa don't panic hun 3 days is great and all the things you're finding are normal and they all will pass and I'm so pleased your hubby is supporting you that makes a lot of difference

    Pleased to hear that already you're feeling the beefits with your sense of taste and smell coming back again already

    The thought of fags to will go but they were a constant companion for many years that it takes a little while to learn to live without them

    Yes your lungs working again ...... clean fresh double the amount of oxygen carrying blood to your body, wooziness is part of it too your body is getting use to taking in more oxygen around your viens as it was beofre we all strted smoking ......... enjoy it's a wonderful feeling ......but if you are not happy as always speak to the doc he will give you proffessional advise ...but to me its a sign your body is healing nicley now, are your fingers nice and warm, appetite coming back ...coffee or tea tastes like coffee or tea......... be careful though the next phase might be ooohh i feel like exercising today ...thats when you know you are on the way to freedom ..... dont worry Lindy the crap is now coming out and only good going back in :)

  • Thanks everyone...it really gives me a boost to read ur replies...

    My hands and feet do seem slightly warmer to be honest, but my hands more so...

    hopefully Im gettin there slowly

  • I could smell weird things the other day, realised it was fresh air! And I can actually smell that filthy smokers smell walking round the supermarket, I knew who was a smoker, totally disgusting.

    I'm only on day 5 myself and still feeling so positive! Just wish the damn craving would beggar off!

  • just remember, a craving is NOT a command you need to obey.

    One hour at a time. I'm on day 10 and it DOES get easier.

    Try drinking lots of water. I have a little crutch I use. I have a plastic straw cut in half that is always on me to touch/feel/put in my mouth.

    Try it

  • yeah,

    Hubby has been really good to be honest, and wont smoke in the house...but when he comes in, the smell is awful...hopefully the longer I go on he might decided to do it himself...

  • smelly smokers

  • Cried to my hubby...not like me as I am not a crying sort of person...he has been wonderful so far...and goes out side in the shed for his fag

    Congratulations on quitting, my other half is still smoking and I am on day three, He smokes in another room out the window, and I've actually noticed him hiding the cigs and sneaking off, lol. He must be feeling guilty. The smell is unbelievable for a while after he smokes, but I find it disgusting and appealing at the same time!! Hoping this is a temporary thing! Other than that, Im starting to notice smells I never knew existed!
