Today sucks ass 😡

Sorry for the negative post but I'm in such a grump today! I woke up with full on chesty cough and swollen glands, my face hurts and everytime I breathe it feels like my lungs are on fire. This is rubbish for two reasons; one I have to go to a very important work meeting tomorrow which includes travel and an overnight stay so there is no sick day for me no matter how bad I feel. The second reason is that even if I wanted to, I cannot use my ecig at all, the slightest inhale is agony. So on top of feeling very ill I also have to deal with complete cold turkey cravings. As the title says, today sucks ass!! I'm only here for the sympathy vote lol ;)

  • Oh no Toni, sorry to read this, I got 2 bad chest and sinus infections since I gave up 7 months ago, thank god all have cleared up and have been fine (touch wood!) this year.

    You can get through this, if you have it at hand, maybe vaporize with vicks or any herbal essences you may have just to ease the pain...

    Would work not recommend you take off with meeting people that sick?

  • It's so very horrid, when every thing hurts, you feel rotten, added to that the pressure of  a difficult day ahead, quitting smoking as well,  indeed you are very much allowed to put pen to paper so to speak...... Not that it helps you feel any better in the least.

    Not having you're cig is a double edged sword. 

    I'm praying tomorrow at least goes by as well as can be, and that your on the mend, rather quickly.

    For tonight, keep warm, plenty of drinks, and a early night is in order.

    Not that you can smoke, but if a little ray of sunshine is on the horizon, if you still smoked, my word you would feel even worse.

    Sending a hot water bottle, lots of lush drinks, nice warm pjs.

    And hoping your not feeling as bad in the morning.

    Well done, just for keeping going.

  • Sending lots of sympathy. Sounds awful especially with such a big work day to deal with. 

  • Toni...You got my sympathy vote...Stay strong and hang on in there !!!

  • It's awful when you feel rotten working away from home. Hope it's a bit better today and you get through the meeting alright.

  • Wishing you strength today ToniR 

  • Thanks guys, it's nice to get some sympathy 😊 After not having used my ecig since yesterday morning I had the biggest craving I had since giving up almost 2 months ago and walking into sainsburys this morning was a real test of willpower! Fortunately I remembered to dig out my old lozenges last night so I survived the test! I'm sat on the train dosed up on flu meds but at least my boss is here to witness my heroism lol!

  • Well done ToniR !  Hope you get some well earned recovery time now!
