Good morning everyone. I woke up this morning and i felt absolutely fantastic. I felt confident, strong & rejuvenated!!! Like i had acheived something.
Last night after my last post i looked at the site why quit. I saw some really horrible things, some lungs that probably resemble mine at the moment. I thought to myself how could i have been doing this to myself all this time? All the information was there before me but i chose to ignore it, ignorant to what smoking can really cause.
I think that is why i felt so good this morning because the penny has finally dropped.......its only taken 4 attempts. I'm stronger and i will face this addiction head on.....i'm ready to go in the ring with that demon because i know i will win. I'm not breathless anymore, i can smell & taste just as much as the non smokers that i envied.....its the all new me, kim, i luv me!!!!!
I had my dr's appt this morning too. I think i told her more than she told me but hey i'm going to have regular weekly appts with the nurse & because of my worries of the pain in my shoulder (i'm convinced its my lung) i have to have a chest xray. I will let you know the outcome. When i came out the surgery ive got news of some very difficult family problems thats happenin right now with my mum and sister, ive cried 3 times already but reaching for a cig is the last thing on my mind....i'm very proud of myself😄
