84 days smoke free

Hi everyone.

Just a little update to let you all know how I am getting on. This is my 84 days smoke free. First 4 weeks on champix then that was it, it didn't agree with me. I have been so amazed with myself over the last 2 weeks I went to babysit 2 weeks ago got out of my car and slipped in mud and wet leaves and to cut a long story short have broken a bone In my lower leg. The break was unstable and needed surgery to put plate in. I am at home now and can't weight bare for awhile however back to hospital next Monday to have stitches out and a full cast and hopefully a walking boot. But I have to say surgery went well and recovery even better. Just prior to op the nurse was doing some checks and asked me if I smoked I very proudly told her I was 11 weeks smoke free and she said well done I can tell by your oxygen levels they care really good. Are bodies are wonderful, 40 years of smoking and they still go into repair mode. I have never looked for a cigerette during my recovery and feel strong enough now to know that I will never light up again. Thank you so much for all the support I have received on this forum especially when I was feeling so negative. Catch up soon. Annmarie
