Today I joined a running group because I thought it would be good for lung rehabilitation. I was in the slowest group (beginners) and I had to walk most of the 5k and I was at the back of the group the whole time. But I felt so good when we got back and had completed the course. My lungs still won't expand fully and I could only run about 150 yards at a time but I am heading to where I want to be! And that is a smoke free healthy person who looks after themselves. The thought of leaving my two beautiful daughters alone fills me with horror and even though they are adults I think a girl always needs her mum around! And I have now given up the patches too and I'm no longer waking up in the night buzzing with anxiety like I did in the early days. I just have the lozenges now when I get the nicotine craving. Onwards and upwards hey!
