I went to the doctor yesterday for my 6 month check-up. It was a wonderful feeling to hear that all my blood work is finally perfect! Everything was perfect! I lost 10 lbs (was 12lbs); however, I had a couple binge nights from want to smoke :(. I told my doctor about my anxiety issues and the feeling I was going to die. LOL! He said I was at no risk of dying with a grin! I guess when you stop smoking terrible things run through your mind and makes you ponder on what damage the cigs might be doing to your body. However, I learned that by not smoking your health drastically improves. My blood pressure was great, my heart rate was great, and my doctor was surprised at the rate my cholesterol went down to normal without medicine. YAY!!!!!!! I am one happy girl! On that note, I leave you with a great quote that is my favorite! "It has been said that there are no incurable diseases, only incurable people". Don't every forget this on your quit journey. You can do this....one baby step at a time. I know it's hard and painful....but the reward is so much greater than the pain. Without suffering their would be no compassion! Let's be grateful today....grateful for the wonderful people on this site helping one another on their quit journeys, grateful for our lives, and grateful that this is another day smoke free! Love you all!!!
