.... feeling like a little kid. Looking like a true survivor. Etc etc etc....
It feels so good to be nearing the end of my first month - I am really feeling a kind of childlike joy about it all.
Physically, I still feel awful. I have had an almost permanent "smokers cold" since I stopped - constant running nose and grotty throat. No cough, but very wheezy and short of breath. But I keep telling myself that this is all self inflicted, so, to use a common forum term, I just need to Man Up!
Good luck to everyone on here - especially those newer than me. Stick with it, because it does get easier. I don't ever want to have to go through this again, so this is really it for me this time!
