To all those toying with the just one or struggling with the thought of wanting to start smoking again please learn from my mistake. It's never one as you know & the longer you leave it the harder it is to get back on a quit. All the benefits I felt health wise very quickly disappered, shockingly so. I am now suffering form the effects of smoking again & it is not pleasant at all.
Had my annual COPD review last week. When on my quit I was really looking forward to that hoping my lung function & age would show some improvement. Well, obviuosly it had not improved given all the c**p I have been inhaling. In fact my lung age went up from 78 to 97 & I am moving to the upper end of mild towards moderate. I am 50 in a couple of weeks so this is NOT good news.
I am changing my method of quit this time as well. I have used patches & lozenges in the past & the patches have been brilliant, made the quit so painless. This time I am only using the lozenges as I want to be as free of nicotine as I possibly cn as quickly as I can. I know I will still be getting some from the lozenges so am not going CT but if I don't use them from previous experience I will be the size of a house by the end of the first week.
Anyway, enough of my waffle. Make day 1 a good 'un all those with me today and of course a happy smoke free day to all my friends further down the line
