Hi all and Happy new year,
I just wanted to let you know i am still smoke free 79 days!!!
I also wanted to say sorry for not being on much lately but been a bit busy as i have just found out that i have an underlying health issue that may have been masked by my smoking for years, When i first gave up smoking as you will know i was really struggling and was finding it more and more difficult, I have been unable to eat solid food for about half of my quit and just thought it was due to withdrawls, It was'nt it looks like i have a blowout in my esophagus, i am still unsure as to what any off this means but it is being dealt with now.
Basically what i wanted to say was i feel more positive about quit now i know the eating problem, still tasting smoke and smelling like a smoker still (as far as im concerned everything stinks of smoke) is not making my quit easier but i have made it this far even my doc was suprised that with the added stress of all these symptoms i am still a non smoker as it would be easier to say s#d it whats the point.
however if i hadnt quit i may never have known (in time) about my illness so thank my lucky stars i did and if i can get this far with extra stress i know im never going back so alls well that ends well.
good luck all on quits keep up the good work.
