Still Being a good Boy, and a little more news from doctor

Posted 08-10-2011 12:38 AM by Phil uk

Hi All, well first things first, the Stats.....

2 weeks, 5 days, 9 hours, 30 minutes....

Still, as they say, taking it one day at a time. I am still on the first level patch, and still using the lozenges as well, when required.

But all in all I am doing quite well with the smoking / Ecig cessation. One thing I noticed today on my way into work was a car went by, and someone must have been smoking in there, it passed at about 40 miles per hour, and I could...

Time to move forward again

Posted 07-30-2011 01:23 AM by Phil uk

As always, the daily stas for the nicotine reduction:-

8 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes

With a combination of the patches, lozenges and the terrible fear that I have gone through over the last few months, well it is proving easier to get past the nicotine dependency than I every thought possible.

I am not craving much at all, and of course the biggest worry of all has been removed. The other side of things is that I have realised how much I want to live,...

Tough but Still 'Walking The Line'

Posted 07-29-2011 12:42 AM by Phil uk

Well, I am still free from inhaled nicotine, and very proud of myself. The Current Stats are:-

7 day 9 hours 36 minutes.

For those who have been reading the blog, you will know that today is possibly the day I get my chest X-Ray results. It was a very very scary night last night, and (I know this is going to sound so incredibly stupid) I really wanted a cigarette to calm my nerves. So much I could almost taste it. As I have mentioned many times, the fear also was the...

More Stress along the way

Posted 07-27-2011 01:45 AM by Phil uk

Well, what can we say? having a tough time at the minute.

I guess the good news is the place to start, 5 days, 9 hours and 54 minutes is the current time without inhaling nicotine. (as mentioned previously the phrase is used to cover smoking cigarettes and using an e-cig) so even under normal circumstances I guess I should be proud of that.

Although the smoking cessation services will tell you that stress is an excuse for smoking, and that cigarettes do not help with...

Nicotine update

Updated 07-25-2011 06:09 AM by Phil uk

well, three days upto now, not weakened...

I am craving a little bit, but manageable, so hopefully this quitting inhaled nicotine is not doing too bad.

Pain in the chest, back and shoulders is still there, still panicking about Tuesday. To be honest, it is all I can think about at the minute. I am trying to focus, because work is suffering through it, but what can I do?

It is not every day you are waiting to find out if you have a death sentence, or...
