Day 28

Hi all

I've made it to the four week mark and am so feeling happy :D - The craves are manageable and even though I quite often think of a smoke it is just that, thinking not wanting, except in my sleep, I have at least one fag every night, usually in some surreal situation, I feel disappointed and disgusted with myself then wake up and realise it was just a dream :p In a way it makes waking hours easier because I know how upset with myself I would be if I caved :mad:

I have noticed my teeth are definitely getting whiter, my skin brighter and my breathing has improved beyond belief, I can take great big lungfulls in and out without choking, I have a chest clinic appointment next Friday and am hoping to be taken off the inhalers as I just have not needed them in the last three weeks. My sense of taste and smell are now awesome, unfortunately they are so good I have put on at least half a stone :o, but as the nurse said, you can lose weight any time but you only get one pair of lungs ;)

Isn't it fab when you feel healthier? And if you can come off your inhaler that's even better!!
