| | well I am going to do it
I have been coming here reading for the past couple of months, been doing that thinking thing. My health these days is not going great, I have been diagnosed with hyperthyoid and my eyes are starting to protrude, which could be part of the condition. However through lots of reading, it has been indicated that smoking can contribute to this disease. So three weeks ago I picked a quit date. Starting on Monday, March 19 I will be taking Zyban, I took it three years ago when it first came out, it worked for me, however one day I thought just one wouldn't hurt, well here I am three years later....
My quit date is April 1, 2001 and yes it was pointed out to me that it is April's Fool Day, however at the time I didn't realize it. My youngest who is 11 told me that he will be very sad if that is a April joke. I have told him that not to worry.
I do have concerns about the whole combination of quitting and I could be going on thyroid medication very close together, however I felt that I should just do. Especially the weight issue, both the quit and thryoid medication will increase my weight, however mentally I think I am prepared.
I told plan on being around this board for help.
Thanks for listening
