Day 19, where am I?

Or better yet, WHO am I?

I am really not surprised having a bit of an identity crisis here. Well, its not really a crisis. Sometimes I feel like I am standing outside of myself, just observing. As mentioned before, I have never been an adult without smokes, so this is all really new to me.

The weekend craves were bad but nothing I couldn't handle with coming here :)

The inside of my nostrils is all crusty and gets on my nerves, I hope that's over with soon now! No coughs whatsoever! which is really neat.

Threw out my back past friday and could barely move. The worst thing is, I had such problems breathing (mid back) and THAT got really annoying. Demon said: might as well smoke if you can't breathe anyway.... LOL ;) he tries SO HARD, almost amusing!

Well you are here among friends, who care about what happens to you, so be strong.

I can relate to never having been an adult without smokes, wierd isn't it?

Glad to hear your breathing is getting better too.

It will all be better with time.

Well said NotMe, I had never thought like that, 53 and have smoked since I was 13, so does that excuse me if I now go through those horrible teenage tantrums.

In fact my Mum always says how easy I was compared to my (never smoked) sister.

I have had a cough since I was born it seems like, however it has gone now :p I have found I have really felt my breath this week, as in it sort of hits me, very dry, when I breathe in. A peculuar feeling I have never had before.

I can TOTALLY relate to this. I always cough, morning noon and night, and through the night. I was always clearing my throat, i put it down to having a cold weeks/months ago. But in the last week I haven't coughed at all.. amazing! and the dry breathing, that's a new thing for me too.
