Hi Everyone.Today Ive hit the 4week milestone and am really amazed that I have got this far.The Time has gone so slow it has been like every day has been twice as long as normal.Maybe its because each day is no longer 'cut up' into peices by my rolling cigarettes and smoking them (eg 10 cigs @5mins each equals 50mins or if someone smokes 20 then thats 1hour and 40mins 'lost') I dont know or maybe its because I have 'increased' my lifespan : ) -who knows? Its been a roller coaster ride for me and I love the term"take it one day at a time" as nothing could be truer as some days have been easy and others hell. The cravings I had have altered to an 'itch' I cant scratch,an empty/hollow ache that cant be satisfied with food but I DONT WANT TO SMOKE. Im going to stick with this ride as every day brings a different veiw.It has taken 4weeks for my lungs to start to cleanse that just shows how much I had damaged the cilia(little hairs that remove debris from the lungs) I have just started moving clear mucus with little grey and fawn specks in.Its all added resolve and determination to stick with this quit. I wish everyone all the best with their quits.Bye for now.Sue x
