Hi all, i've only just found this forum and its really good to be able to read though other peoples quitting experiences.
I had my last cigarette at 3pm on 28th December following my doctor scaring the life out of me. Since September i've been really wheezy and have been waking several times a night coughing and tight chested....so i've pretty much had 3 months of not enough sleep. I went to the doctors assuming the "mild" asthma I have always had was playing up (probably due to an allergy, as I had allergy symptoms too) only to be told it could be COPD.
I've had a lung function test the other day, and fingers crossed as the nurse said the results are showing up as normal and that they improved after i'd had an asthma treatment. But I have to wait until 17th January to see my doctor for the official results.
Anyway, day 5 almost completed and i'm actually feeling pretty good much better than I thought I would. I aready feel like i'm breathing tons better, and the last two nights I haven't woken up coughing.
I'm a little worried that I'm on a bit of a cloud at the moment, as I have not really experienced any major cravings or had a difficult day.....so I'm not sure if there's a really bad day waiting to hit me like a brick or something. I guess it just take it a day (or an hour) at a time, and keep going until the time that not smoking becomes normal.
Well done and good luck to everyone on here with their quitting, keep it going and don't give up!
