Day 16, bring it on

Well I am still here on Day 16 - even though I have turned 53 today and all I want to do to celebrate it is - not to have a fag! (Betcha you thought I'd say I wanted one, eh???)

The only really bad crave I seem to get now is the first thing in the morning but I am going for longer periods now where I don't think about ciggies.

My cough has all but disappeared - which is wierd as I thought it would get worse, not better.

Still breathless - but this is a small price to pay.

Have not really missed those 320 odd cigs that I would have smoked!

Have even got a bit more energy than I normally have!

Cold turkey, bring it on!!!!
