Still here and still quit

Haven't been around much but do read the posts. Well done to everyone on this journey. I have had an awful cold and now suffering with blocked sinuses. Been hanging on for 4 weeks now, hope it's all cleared up for Christmas.

Has anyone heard from ChrissieG ?

Put my tree up today, looks pretty and now writing lists for shopping.

I think I am 11 months today

  • I feel discouraged also my friend..Quit smoking down hill from there...On a inhaler...Borderline pulmonary issues.Been to drs any advise or positive words.Hopefully better days ahead....I do not like my inhaler....ughhh...

  • Stopping smoking really is the best thing you can do, yes it is hard, but you will start to feel better, I don't know what inhaler your on ,if you don't think its helping perhaps your Dr could try another x I think that most of us on here go through so many emotions, when we quit, sometimes it even feels like a bereavement, I know that I did, I even thought whats the point in stopping , the damage is done, it can't be undone x ! But the thing is , you can have a better 'quality of life' , Take it one day at a time, do what you can to help yourself, Think Positive !! You can always come on here and have a rant , this is such a brilliant forum, so many lovely people who all have different reasons for quitting, someone will always be here for you xx Sending you big hug x

  • I too have reached my 5 month mark. It hasn't been easy. I too had to quit because of COPD. I still have cravings. Especially at night. For some reason my breathing is better in the cold. Summer, had many episodes of SOB.

    I also have this internal chemical smell. Not sure if it's coming from lungs or sinuses.

    They say there is a certain smell that is disease specific, just not sure which one matches mine.. Anyway just curious how ur journey has been. I still have a ways to go of healing. Maybe another year or so. Restoring lung function will b a battle.

    Trying to get involved in rehab for that.....

  • Congratulations Dee on your 5 month quit, fantastic achievement :) x
