70 days no smoking....I've finally been able to sleep again.  I couldn't lie down without coughing for about a month so got very little sleep.  I'm finally sleeping now through the night no coughing or wheezing.  And breathing is finally getting easier if I just wouldn't think about it I give myself panic attacks breathing just thinking about what I went though early on.  But I'm still happy I made it this far!!

YAY Trish, 70 days down and sleeping and breathing good.  We are all doing this one day at a time and together.

Wow Trish. Good job!!! 70 days is quite the milestone. Glad to hear that breathing is getting easier. Its amazing how our bodies respond when we get rid of this poison. Its almost like the most manipulative person in the world has a hold on your life and it takes so much time and effort to realize that you don't need that in your life and you are so much better without it.

Thanks James now if I could only get my damn brain to not think i'm not breathing I'd be fine...lol Panic attacks in the first month scared the crap out of me and now its just in my damn mind and hard to get rid of I'm working on it baby steps for that too.

I gained 17 lbs and am slowly working on it.  I did learn that smoking increases your metabolism, quitting slows it way down, then it goes back to normal.  Also at my age, toning becomes more difficult.  I’m working on it but any way you look at it it’s better than smoking.
