I hope you feel better today, Alex.
Thanks, Michaela. I was just reading up on my condition (*I think).
"However, the re-population of cilia doesn't mean that symptoms will immediately disappear. In fact, it can lead to the development of a new cough in the months following cessation. While distressing, this symptom is perfectly normal. As the cilia start pushing toxins out of the airways, the accumulation can trigger coughing spasms as they are expelled from the lungs. In most cases, the coughing will start to subside by the end of the second or third month."
Maybe I have "new cough"? I have been coughing up phlegm.
Way to go, Alex ! You had a special day with your daughter, pampered yourself and achieved victory another day. A win-win day even being under the weather.
No ridicule here, this is a safe zone. All of us have gone through different ways of trying to quit. You name it, I have tried it. I am a big believer in whatever works for you. If I thought sticking carrots in my ears would help, I would try it. Now I am down to just trying little old me. So far I am standing up to the challenge, I don't know about tomorrow. Just stay on board, stay with us and we will all try to come out the other side. As far as getting nothing done, if I go any slower, I will be going backwards.
Welcome back, Anthony. There are a bunch of us "repeat offenders", but we will get there. Good for you having your partner for support. Here's to patience, not my best virtue, but I am learning.
Victory for another day ! Pepa is proud of you. How are you today ?
Thank you, Marge. I will read all you can give me.
You are very welcome.
Thanks for your welcome Brenda, I am a serial offender from way back, but determined to give it another go. There are no cigarettes in the house, whoopee first time ever, partner is doing well,
Keep up the good work...
