Week 2 At Last~ A New Month, A New Smoke Free Me!
Good Morning All,
Well here it is im now into my 2nd week :cool: and now off of those Champix. I feel great in one sense but absolutely awful in another. I have not had one of those tablets since yesterday morning and last night i had the most awful of nights, i was awake constantly on the hour if you like and i tossed and turned all night long, those tablets def mess up your brain you know and now im trying to overcome that and live a normal life again and this time a smoke free one. But i think its going to be a few more days yet before im completely clear of those meds in my system. I dont regret taking them because i feel they helped but what its done to my head is not good and i would rather struggle to stay off than have headaches, dizziness, weird dreams, etc etc. Im into my 2nd week now so hopefully all the other nasties from smoking have gone now and as ilias pointed out in my other thread its just the habit to overcome now thats why i have my knitting to keep me occupied.
Im now on scarf no 8 and im hoping that today i will be able to concentrate more on it because the last few days i have been unable to really get into it as i felt that bad.
So far this morning apart from feeling a little dehydrated which i have had a nice cuppa for im not feeling too bad, by no means am i 100% but then its only 24 hrs since i took my last tablet and i must give it a couple of days to clear through my body.
The twins are back at school this morning (oh yes) so they have just got up and i have made them their breakfast. They are going to be 11 in Dec, i dont know where the time has gone too its gone so quickly. They are all growing up so fast.
Anyhow, just made another cuppa as im really thirsty this morning. I think when i see the Nurse tomorrow im just going to ask to be seen each week anyhow still and not go onto anything as i dont want anymore chemicals going into my body, i would prefer to stay as i am and ride out the storm but at least by seeing her weekly she can take my readings and can also keep an eye on my progress but without any nico replacement or other treatment they may try and offer me.
It was nice yesterday to have the total support of my OH. He mentioned to me that it had been a week since i stopped and said "Well Done" which coming from him was a real bonus, i mentioned to him about what the tablets are doing to me and he just said STOP TAKING THEM and that i had come this far so could now stay away from those nasty blighters, he said he had every confidence in me, which was nice.
I can also speak to him on the phone again now without thinking of the old ways, i use my bluetooth headset now and carry on knitting etc that way i can still speak to my Hunni but without having the other thoughts.
Anyhow, this thread i will update everyday rather than keep starting a new one. Onwards and upwards
