Rightyo! we are now into week four of kicking the gaspers, yeah baby….smoke free, but I will wind the clock back a bit first.
I mentioned in the last post that at day 8 we were ready or I should say, the booklet says, GO SMOKE FREE ON DAY 9. Well day 9 came and fkn went and we had about three gaspers I think. I grabbed the instruction fkn leaflet and re read it…OH!, It says, you should stop smoking somewhere between day 9 and day 14. DEEEEER!
So we soldiered on, it turned out that by day 14, I did not want a smoke, fkn things tasted like shit, stunk, burnt and christ knows what else…but still on the drus, still couging shit up as well.
I had to venture to the doctors, turned out we had a MILD infliction of Bronchitis, got some drugs and been fighting the fucking thing ever since. BUT WE ARE WINNING.
So its two weeks now, smoke free, jesus can we smell stuff!, fkn amazing I must say. Rather gald I made the descision, glad also we did it in a structured fashion too..OH and BTW, we have jumped to 72.2 kilos…FAAAAAAARK!. Not surprised really as we have been eating like a horse, thats in part because Nicotine is a hunger suppressant and its now gone, but also, because we keept the hands busy by eating. Thats kinda dangerous I think, but the munching has slowed, GYM WORK is about to start.
Heres a tip, try eating RADISHES and then see if you can smoke a gasper….FKN NO WAY!
Noticed the breathing is much better, coughs almost gone, foods fkn wicked and lots of other stuff, I still get the odd little niggle for a smoke, but I know they taste like shit and the key is lasting the 30 seconds or so and then the craving is GONSKI!
Here’s the other beauty, not sure if its that smart, but I kept a half packet in the glove box, its amazing how little I think about them being there, and not always do I remember when I get the little cravings either. Guess if we were desperate etc…THEY WOULD BE REMEMBERED.
So we see the Doc tomorrow night for the next course of champix, might have a word to him about getting some fucking sleep as well, that’s proving to be the biggest killer…ALMOST Literally, as we do a lot of driving, having a nap behind the wheel is NOT ON THE TO DO LIST!
SO..onwards and fkn upward I say!…can’t wait to stop the drugs, stop the antibiotics and HAVE A FUCKING BEER AS WELL!.
OH and its funny too, I’ve gone from about 12 cups of Coffee per day..DOWN TO about 2
