Day 4 and my throat is in so much pain smoking is the last thing I want to do, even if in part it might numb the pain ;_;
I only ever smoked like 1-4 a day so have stopped cold turkey.
My never-ending cough (seriously had it ever since I had the flu 3months ago on and off!) been getting worse and yesterday throat ached a little, wake up today after a restless night of sneezing, coughing, headache and general insomnia and now added to the list... full blown tonsillitis. I know this because I have had it before (when I first started smoking.. humm coincidence..)
Used a torch to look down my throat and back of my throat they are swollen, red and covered in yellowy phlegm I keep coughing up.
Decided to give up on Sunday Morning after gobbing up some big nasty the diameter of my throat with stripes of red blood and yellow, white and green gunk in it like aquafresh toothpaste gone wrong!
I am getting ready for an interview for a volunteer work with kids job I really want. Part of a big fresh start, but keep thinking if I had just waited a few days to give up I wouldn't have a nasty cough and lost voice at the interview!
Guess I mighta stunk of smoke though and been all need-a-cig stressy before and after.
Told my smoking housemate today I would super appreciate it if he would smoke less around me because I am quitting to try improve my health, and just got a dirty look and a "uhh whatever" he knows I have tried before, one of the main reasons I fail is he always smokes around me and I will ask for a drag, then argue when he says no and nag until he gives in. He doesn't get if he smokes in his room or in the front room when I'm not around, or even if he tells me he's gonna have one and I'll leave the room, then we would never get to that
Day 4 quite hard.
