Hi ive quit smoking now for 2 weeks, the doctor gave me patches, and spray. Ive stuck to it and havent had a cigarette in over 2 weeks nearly 3 but when i went back to the doctor i got a reading of 9 which she said was to high for someone who has quit smoking. it should have been below 5, she said i must have done something within the hour before i went which was 11am - 12 lunchtime, the only thing i did was go downstairs talk to my parents and then my parant took me to the meeting, no one smokes in my house hold. And the only thing i did was have a puff of an electronic cigarette (The one that all the large stores are selling at the moment) As i had used it as a last option if i felt really stressed, so the only thing i did in the hour before was that. I asked her if that could have effected it and she said no it shouldnt. So am now sat wondering what could have caused it, she did say that maybe the gas boiler at home was leaking carbon minoxide but my father assures me that the room the boiler is in is a sealed room and the boiler has a system that if it leaks the carbon is pushed out a vent to the outside, so im stumped. My origonal reading was 19 so its gone down by ten but cant think of any reason why it would be high. I was wondering if anyone else had a similar thing? Could it really be the electronic cigarette? Thats what my family are trying to suggest it could be. But i couldnt find anything about it on the net?
Thanks for any replies or help in trying to figure this one out !!
