day 31 , well its been interesting certainly . enjoyable probably not .
i had my last two fags at 7.30 and 7.45 am with two coffees on the 9th jan outsie in the garden with the temperature at -1 .
I had 3 weeks with 14mg patches then couldnt be Ar*ed to go to the shop and buy anymore so have gone CT. i used lozenges for the first two weeks just to get over really heavy cravings . i still have a tube of lozenge mints left but are starting to view them as evil little mints that will encourage the thought of smoking so they are just sitting looking at me waiting to be binned.
And it has been worth every effort to get this far, i can breathe easier ,my chest doesent rattle in the morning, i have rediscovered food. my circulation has improved .more energy , my car doesent smell like an ashtray . i dont have to sneak off for a smoke before meetings at work or in general everyday life. to a great degree i was a secret smoker, i was i admit embarrased by my habit which has helped me stop .
i am off to play football again tonight for the first time in 8 months after a knee einjury , so i am hoping my improved lung capacity will enable me to show off the silky skills to better effect.
so apart from the new found insomnia , irrational mood swings, increased crisp consumption and ability to loose concentration randomly i would reccomend not being a smoker to all smokers.
this forum defiantly helps get over the first few weeks just concerned may be addicted to this now !
looking forward to month 3 already
