Morning and thanx again for the lovely welcome xx

Well today is day 10 for me in the* No Smokin House* ..I feel a bit rough today , as in, me lips are all dry and starting too crack , i have had a really bad cough since about day 2 , too be honest i said too my daughter , its deffo got a little COPD goin on , as in i cough cough cough cant stop , eyes streaming going dizzy, back of my throat feels like someones ticklin it with barbed wire , Maybe i stopped this smoking just at the right time eh?? This is my 3rd day of going cold turkey , I keep forgetting the patches , and the inhalator , when it hits my throat makes this damn cough worse, so , see how i go eh !

Hope you all have a lovely peaceful Sunday :) xx

Hey scousemum,

Your doing great :D. But I do think things get worse before they get better, coughs, sneezes and wheezes and sore throats :(. I still keep coughing on day 16, but not the hacking cough I had when I was smoking lol people thought I was dying :eek:. Takes a few weeks to really feel the physical benefits, but we got all that to look forward to :D.

Aww i hope so hun, cant wait too get past the month without smoking , cos its in my head thats when i let myself down last time :( hope your cough gets gone soon Zoe , well done you on day 16 i will be following you ( not in a weird way lmao ) sorta like a quit buddy :D xx

Scousemum... Congrats on quitting, 3 days without nicotine... Well that means by the end of today all of it is out of your system! Congrats! If you think about it, reintroducing the patches or inhaler will reboot your initial 3 days... 10 days without a smoke is awesome no matter how it has been accomplished anywho... I am just a couple days ahead of you, so going through pretty much the same points in the process. Welcome to the forum! Tons of informastion and support here, it has definitely been a big part of my resolve and continued choice to not smoke.


Thanx Viking, well done on your quit too :)

I had a little nap this avvy , as you do on a Sunday lol, well ...i was dreaming i was a lot younger and in bed with a young guy :D hehehehe :D he threw me a ciggie , arghhhhhhhh then i woke ....., bloody gaspin fer a smoke , Nicodemon is a sly git isnt he ;) Hope you have all had a nice peaceful Sunday xxxx

Trust you to pick a smoker.

Wish I could dream I was younger in bed with a younger woman...smoker or not ooooooha

Morning all x

Day eleven in * the no smoking house * feeling ok as in had no major craves , well not what i couldnt handle , but this stupid cough is getting no better , its waking me up and this morn i coughed so much i started too be sick and noticed specks of blood :eek:

I will just see how things go :( hope you all have a good day today :) xx

Well done so far scousemum but if you are bringing up blood, and you are sure it is blood, then you absolutely must go to the doctors straight away.

You haven't got any mouth ulcers or anything have you?

Are your gums bleeding at all (common when you quit).

If it is not from your mouth, go and see a doctor.

It's probably nothing to worry about but it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Ooh scousemum, I agree with Capitan, you should see a doctor straight away. Am sure everything is okay, you might have a chest infection, but you do need to be checked out. Let us know how you are getting on, and hope you are feeling better soonest.

Zoe xxxx

Morning Scousemum, how are you doing?

Hope everything is ok and you are still quit :)


Morning everyone, day 12 for me yep still quit sir :D

Still coughing not as much though and no more blood so thats good , i do have a stomache ulcer sooo the constant aggressive cough may have iritated that , so its all going ok, I couldnt get in here all yesterday , did anyone else experience this ?? i thought maybe the site was doing work or summat ,

I had a few bad craves yesterday :eek: so i was like someone demented walkin round the house shouting go away NOOOOO ya not winning !!

if anyone would have looked through the window they wudda sent for the men in white coats HEHE! hope everyone else is doing ok . xx

Great to hear Scousemum, just keep an eye on that bleeding though :)
