Hi am still off the ciggies. Pleased that I am able to drink and socialise without gasping for a smoke. Have now been able to cut down on the mountains of sweets and chocolates I have been eating. Have put on 3 lbs since I stopped smoking so must not put on any more. My doc told me 2 things before I gave up smoking. The first was that my asthma would improve and that I'd be able to cut down on the number of preventer puffs from my inhaler. Thought she was just saying that to induce me to give up smoking. But it is true. Have cut down number of puffs by half. The other thing was that blood regenerates itself within 2 months so that with the new untainted blood , the energy levels increase.Am waiting eagerly for this new burst of vitality!
