:confused: How did that happen?!?
So here I am, 2 weeks free of nicotine. I'm feeling ok. I miss smoking and still fancy it, and sometimes I forget that I don't smoke anymore. I really can't wait for the day where I can go a whole day without thinking about it, but i'm thinking that that's a few weeks down the road yet. Maybe months.
I miss the smell, and I know that that's disgusting But I was never a smoker who hated smoking, i smoked outdoors so every one I had I really enjoyed, when someone walks past me smoking, it makes me stop and smell the air. I like the smell, but wish I could hate the smell. :rolleyes:
The cravings ARE getting less, it's more of a passing fancy, none of the mad cravings of the first week.
My MIL (who has emphysema) is currently in hospital, on permanant oxygen for a few days, she's in a ward with ladies who all have chest problems, some of them are quite young, which makes you think. She's awaiting an appointment with a spe******t on wednesday as she has an xray last week and there's been some changes since her last one. she also is having a CT scan in the morning. Everyone is thinking the worst (The big C) personally I'll wait until I know for definate what's wrong with her before I get upset. It could just be some changes. The ironic thing is, since she's been in hospital (saturday) she hasn't smoked, she'll be in till at least Friday so that's 6 days off the fags, but I know that as soon as she's out she'll be back to her 40 a day. which is awfully frustrating for her family. It makes me more determined to stay stopped.
My other half rewarded me for staying off them another week. a big box of belgian chocolate truffles, which lasted me about an hour
Anyway that's my update for today. I may delete the bit about my MIL as i don't like sharing so much personal stuff on an open forum, is there a private section here, where only members can read?
