:)How cool is this, i am now on Day 3 and i just cant believe it, i mean i am now starting to stay in bed a little longer, sleeping better too now, i even notice my OH is in bed with me now because before i would roll away from him as i felt like i must smell and thats not nice when in bed so my side was my side and his was his, yet over the last few days i have got closer to him in bed almost like im making sure he is there.
So far so good, this is also the start of Week 2 of the Champix tablets, after i have had some breakfast in a bit i will be taking my tabs, i always make sure i eat when i take them cos i dont want to feel sick and i know that can be a side effect. I would have been on the higher doses from today but when seeing my nurse yesterday i have been allowed to stay on the lower dose unless of course i get real bad urges or withdrawels from those things, now what were they called, of yes, Cigarettes! Bliming things, aarrghhhhhhhhhh :eek:
Morning's are getting easier to deal with now, i get up, have my first daily tabs, i have an Underactive Thyroid so those tabs come first, then i have a drink, sit and come on here for a bit, make a cuppa, do some knitting and wait for the mad house to start. I wait about an hour after my thyroid meds before i eat and then take my Champix as i know they prefer that the thyroid meds are taking before food so thats my routine, well so far anyhow. I then have my 2nd Champix at about 4.30pm every day, i try where i can to take it at the same time and if not as soon as i can after that, i like to make sure because i dont want to lapse as its way to early in the quitting process to start forgetting and going back and i have not come all this way to have to start all over again. :/
Everyone is asleep at the mo and im gonna make a cuppa in a bit too, also im 2/3 away through my elder sons blue and yellow scarf he wants, im getting there. Once i start to get into it later i can keep going till its completed, then i have to start one for my OH as he wants a scarf too.
I still have some of the nasty stuff on my chest, it does not want to to go at the moment, i mentioned it to the nurse yesterday and she said it will go eventually as its all the nasty, yucky stuff vacating my lungs but its annoying and i cant even cough to try and clear it, but i know my body has NO MORE CARBON MONOXIDE or NICOTINE left from the smoking habit now, all those things have GONE from my body and its just this last bit of a reminder that is lurking about, that should go soon though and its part of the process for quitting and if im totally honest i expected something like this to happen.
Anyhow, overall, i feel really :), so so proud of myself and i am also proud of the others that are in the October Group 2010 that i am now a member off, together with those Guys and Gals we are going to get through this and Stay as NON SMOKERS.
Well till later then when i will come back and write some more. Good luck to everyone, remember you can do this and when you do decide make sure that you do it for "YOU" first the others are a bonus
