Never thought I would get past day 5 let alone get to 22! Feeling good, though. Im having a few cravings, but nothing major. Inhalator helps, but im chewing it more than I am using it. My nurse says Im doing well, she has already dropped my visits.
I got a bit down last night talking to a "friend"....she tried to quit 2 1/2 years ago....I supported her until I found out she was faking the breath test thing and purposely not using the patches correctly.....she wanted the Champix and Docs wouldnt let her have it without trying other methods...anyway, I told her last night "whoop whoop Ive nearly done Stoptober!" to be met with, "yeah well I give up ages ago so"....thing is, Id rather she was honest about her addiction. She hasn't given up. She can be a jealous person, so Im wondering if that's it? Because she has struggled....but surely you wouldn't slate somebody else's achievment when you know how hard it actually is!? Im sorry, just needed to get this out of my system as its really upset me and left me feeling a bit down
My other half, who is a smoker, is very jealous...but in a really supportive way! He says he " is jealous I have gotten this far cos he couldn't do it with such grace"......and my mom who is also a smoker with COPD is also chuffed to bits and really supportive too!
