No post yesterday, was too busy at hospital.
The Good news, am still on the wagon! I can't believe it's been a week already. I do feel better. More energy, less coughing, fresh air tastes nicer. When the cravings strike though they are sometimes so intense that they literally stop me in my tracks.
Last night and early this morning were the closest I've come to caving in and smoking so far. I really struggled for a time and contemplated going to shops and buying tobacco more than once. Willpower won in the end, and I put it down to the stress of my wife having a pretty major op today and just found something else to do. As a consequence, the laundry and the vaccuming were finished by 07:30 this morning.
I won't know how the op has gone until around 6pm today (It's a long one, approx 10 hours under the knife). I'll post something more later. Thank you to those who have sent messages of support, they cheered me up.
