Thanks again for this wonderful resource. It has been an interesting few days for sure, but thankfully the cold turkey remains cold and turkey-like! I will share what the stress is about, as this site is already quickly teaching me that it is good to share!
The same weekend that I quit (so 9 days ago) I found a small lump on one of my testicles. A note to self was made, and following a few days of consideration, I was at the GP's letting him have a good old feel yesterday. Good and bad news really, the good being he was very pleased I'd come to see him. The bad news was it is a concern and I'm now on the less than 2 week waiting list to see the urologist for an ultrasound and discussion about having the chap chopped!
Clearly I am pretty anxious. But my wife is being great and supportive, and my younger daughter is one today so we can focus on that. The aches and pains from quitting have now of course been severely concentrated by anxiety, but it is still NOPE from me.
Smiles to you all.
