Hello all, here i am on my 2nd week feeling stronger and happier than ever. I wake up each morning and within 10 seconds I have a beaming smile on my face when I remember what I have achieved and that I genuinely dont want a ciggy. I think this is my favourite aspect of quitting. It feels like the true me has been released from a self imposed prison sentence and the happiness can not be contained at the freedom i now have.
I had painful teeth and gums and had few mouth ulcers. The teeth and gums are still a little tender but getting better each day. The ulcers are still there but healing and no new ones are appearing. Thats it for negative symptoms. On the positive side there are many - i can breathe so much better! I dont have any wheezing or whistling which I was starting to get, thats gone completely. And i feel so much more relaxed than before - this is the most surprising to me. It confirms to me that cigs DO NOT realx you! It is a myth that cigs help with stress and you need them at difficult times. It is the cigs causing it. I feel like i could take on any situation or pressure at work now. Easy. Allen Carr is so rigt on this point.
I have only been quit for 7 full days and i dont want to come across as though i have beaten this and its all too easy. I am aware of the mind games that could start at any point. I want to share as much as i can in the hope that my experience gives people who might be silently reading this without joining the forum to bite the bullet and have a go. Come on you voyeurs, dive in, You know it makes sense!
Have a great day everyone and keep smiling!
