Not been posting as much as before, but still been lurking on here and reading through others' posts.
I think I'm pretty used to not smoking now, although I can't as yet say I've reached the 'Yippee, I'm free' stage.
I'll admit I've been having a few 'just want to try one' thoughts, partly out of curiousity really, and partly because, despite all the evidence to the contrary, I still struggle with the idea that 'just one' would get me hooked again. So far I've just been trying to follow the wisdom of those who have fallen foul of this, but I can't help being plagued by the thought. Perhaps it's because I don't understand the science behind it - I should look it up really. I'm like a child who keeps asking 'why?' all the time
Otherwise, I've noticed a small improvement in my lung capacity. My nose is still blocked up, but I think that might be a mould issue - can't seem to get rid of the damn stuff in the flat :mad:
Cut down on the use of the patches - more through an allergy than anything else. I'm a bit concerned that coming off nicotine altogether might actually be detrimental - my blood pressure has dropped to below normal, which isn't too bad, but my pulse pressure seems to suggest that I'm one step away from zombiedom. Given the meds I'm on, my blood pressure should be sky high! :confused:
Sorry, I should really be more positive. I am happy that I'm not smoking, I just wish I'd see more benefits.
