Week 2

Day 8 is one hell of an achievement. I find in the mornings I would have a want for a smoke but wouldn't call it a crave, it's more like 'it would be nice' rather than 'I need, I need, I need'.

I know that my body is in the process of healing. On and off my coughing tastes of stale smoke, I couldn't sleep but now i can tho i still feel tired, my nose is runny but also blocking, last week I couldn't go, since Saturday morning my chest and throat have been sore and I am now getting pains in my back. I know this is all part of the healing process and that my body is jest undoing all the years of damage. I really hope this all stops soon.

On the plus side I think I can write yesterday's problems off to the fact that it was the end of week one, it was the first day were I had nothing planned and I also had my first post quit intimate encounter with my partner. I'm looking forward to getting on with week 2 and looking forward to the end of the healing lol. Though I have to reiterate to anyone just starting out, it is worth a bit of discomfort to be free of the monster.

  • Congrats Mark, I'm on day 8 too and know what you mean about the nose block! But, would rather have than than chuffin on them fags ;) Keep going strong...As they say at LO'real - because your worth it

  • Yes Mark, the issues will not last long though, I had an issue with my lungs for the first 4 weeks, you can go to the doctors who will help with this by giving you an inhaler this does work.

    It will be all worth it in the end :)

  • Thanks for the responses guys. its nice to hear from others who have been through this and hear that the repairs are a fleeting issue but in a way I'm glad to have some issues. Last time I tried to quit I had nothing at all. I think having to go through some pain will be a reminder to me that I never want to do this again.

    Craves are getting rare now. Have had one 'it would be nice' moment and one actual crave, which was bearable, so far today but other than that I'm happy enough to get on with it and not give the nicodemon any more recognition than he deserves. He had been in my life for so long and not done anything for me so he can now stay out of my life and I won't ever let him back in. Bye bye Nico :D:D:D

    I will never forget just after making love to my girlfriend having a cigarette and I said to her, if my wife could see me now she would go mad! she thinks I packed in smoking.

  • ha ha rex! :p

    Congrats on reaching day 8 and feeling so good about it! Its nice to have sort of reward for all the crap you seem to be putting up with :( i must admit i havent had any pains (thank god) but i dont know how many years you have been smoking comapared to me (11 years here). I did notice in the gym today though my chest feeling sore much quicker than say two days ago? must be same sort of thing!

    Savor these nice moments because they are so worth it and if you really think about it...you have done the hardest thing which is breaking an addiction!

    time for a treat i think :D xxxxx
