i gave up smoking because my husband frightened me and was took to hospital with a heartbeat of 147 bpm and pains in his chest , we found out he had enlarged lungs and told to give up smoking and that was a Saturday but by the Thursday morning both of us decided to give up smoking with NRT.
My other half started smoking when he was 9-10 year old and on 36 years later he was on NRT , he managed 104 days without one cigarette . it was very hard for him to admit defeat but now smokes between 5-10 cigarettes a day .
Meanwhile i am on my 119 days without a cigarette and i don't miss them one bit and i noticed how things are changing in my body , In the 119 days i had to have 6 teeth out due to severe tooth decay and i only knew this because i had toothache for 2 weeks (i have a dentist phobia) and i put on 2 stone in weight and due to this weight gain, my feet swell and i cant walk far without my legs and feet feel like they are going to break , the doctors think i got plantar fasciitis but the pain isn't always on the bottom of my foot , its the top of it and really painful toes and due to the swelling my skin feels like it going to burst open on my foot
but otherwise i feel better than i did
i want people to know giving up smoking is good for you in the long run but to get there it is hard and you may hit a few obstacles but again you think i did 119 days without a cigarette , i am sure i can do this .
has anyone got any advise for me
