Well nearly at my next mile stone. 23rd Jan I will be four months smoke free. After getting over the anxious period of giving up the NRT, I don't actually crave anymore. The only real reminder that I smoked is this cough! It clears and cones back, clears and comes back! I still moving the brown crud which is a good sign and my overall breathing has definitely improved! When biking my legs now get tried before I get out of breath. So after this I guess the next one will be 6 months, then 1 year. Hopefully the cough would of gone by then, the doctor did say it could take anywhere from One to nine months for my lungs to completely heal.
I've also nearly finished writing my quit story. It's really interesting looking back on how I coped or didn't cope with various parts of my quit. Once finished I will post it on here somewhere
