Hey y'all! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday. I just wanted to check in because it seems like forever since I've been on this site. 5 months is coming up in a few weeks and although I am feeling better (most days) I have noticed that when I am not at the gym for a few days, I feel like poop. The gym gives me energy so of course I stay pretty tired 99 percent of the time. That iron/metal taste in my mouth is so yucky and my sense of smell has heightened even more. My teeth feel itchy (if that makes sense) and I have always practiced good dental hygiene.
I have been a bit angry here and there, but it's not as bad as when I first quit, thank goodness. I can sit around my smoker family and not want a smoke which is nice. I won't lie, I do sometimes enjoy the smell, but to actually smoke, no. I notice the behavior smokers have now. They smoke, and after 5 minutes of smoking they cough. I'm so glad I don't cough anymore. That was so unattractive to me. People tell me I smell good and it's great. People stink like super bad after they smoke (smells like burning metal) and I have to hold my breath around them.
Anyway, I quit drinking soda around 10 days ago so I wake up with headaches, but it's no different than when I quit smoking or before I quit as I have a history of headaches/migraines. I'm trying to readapt my body to good things. It is hard to do, but little by little I am accomplishing it. Just wish I wasn't so tired.
Thanks for letting me jabber on. God Bless!
