I can hear you all sigh, but yes, have given up smoking again. Last one was at 17.00 on Friday 05th Jan. Actually wasnt too bad over the weekend, but now, i'm stuck working at home. So, being bored (not that i'm not busy), the cravings are kicking in. I've nearly gone to get some about 5 times this morning, but have resisted.
I've got a patch on again, but eating seems to be my main distraction. The only problem being, I also joined Weight Watchers on Wednesday last week So I have to watch everything that goes in my muggins.
Ah well, maybe I could substitute food with :blush:
Well, apparantly, i;ve gone through this so far:
Blood pressure and pulse rate return to normal.
Nicotine and carbon monoxide levels in blood reduce by half, oxygen levels return to normal.
Carbon monoxide will be eliminated from the body.
Lungs start to clear out mucus and other smoking debris.
There is no nicotine left in the body.
Ability to taste and smell is greatly improved.
Breathing becomes easier.
Bronchial tubes begin to relax and energy levels increase.
Thats the only thing with the patches, is you still have a nicotine intake
