Approaching my year mark

Diddydelz1 Year Smoke Free

I went to the doctor to see if I had chostochondritis, I was prescribed Melixocam and it worked wonders. I also realized that quitting made me more anxious along the way. I wanted to let you know that the storm ends. I can’t be happier and neither can my lungs. My wife and I are expecting our little boy in a few weeks to be born and we just bought a puppy to go with it. Living smoke free has been the best decision I’ve ever made. Wishing everyone great success in there journeys and I am so excited as I’m only 21 days away from my year mark.

We’re around the same time , 18th Aug will be 12 months for me.. that time last year wheeled into royal berkshire hospital with streptococcus pneumonia , bordering sepsis

Had been holidaying down in Cornwall , bodyboarding everyday with my 8yr old son...

thought I was coming down with a cold lol .. so carried on day to day and it got worse ...

Smoking was my weak point and low immunity which caused this infection to grab hold in my right lung .. it was horrible , painful and scared the crap out of me ..

25 /30 yrs I smoked , so cold turkey from that day and that’s that ..

And tbh , I’d probably still be smoking if I hadn’t got ill like that ..

I hate it with a vengeance now , everything about smoking and the smell is disgusting..

I’ll never go back ..more respect for my lungs now ..

well done and good luck to you and the arrival of your bundle of joy ..

sleepless nights beckoning 😎👍
