Well today I move into the 4/5 month forum I have been a non-smoker for 13 weeks 15 hours saving approx. £600 but more importantly my health! When I first stopped smoking one of the reasons was I had great difficulty walking because of circulation problems! I could only walk about 20 steps before the pain kicked in and I had to stop for a few minutes because the pain was unbearable. I could then continue for maybe another 20 steps and so on. Well I am very pleased to say because I have more oxygen traveling to my extremities I can now walk much further distances, and even when it does become painful it's not as bad as it once was, that alone is a terrific reward for not voluntarily putting poison into my body, and there are so many other benefits but I will leave them for another day. So if you are on the journey to be smoke free there are many reasons to stop smoking NOW because the older you get the more the smoking damage is exposed, if you are finding it hard to stop NOW it's nothing compared to the pain you have to come!!!!! If you continue to smoke.
