Day 35, Thanks again everyone for being here without you I wouldn't be here, this is a bit like AA for me I come on and read all the New stories, follow up on them then catch up with my followers and then the people I've been following now its time for me to get up and tell my story and tell you all how I'm travelling. I log on every now and again if there have been any comments made on any of my stories I get notifications on my PC and my phone, its great to be part of an anonymous community it's very rewarding and my Selfasteem has gone up to a point I never thought possible as I was feeling pretty low before I became involved with this. The days have gone by a lot faster and I've been getting a lot more done even my Wife has noticed a change in my behavior I'm a lot more Tolerable and patient and don't get around feeling sorry for myself as now I've found some purpose and motivation I haven't felt this good since I got out of Rehab 23 years ago Mentally and Physically. It was quite a challenge for me to give up smoking for the first 4 weeks I had to give up smoking cannabis again so I was going thru dual withdrawals the patches got me thru that but I was still pretty moody and I still smoked cigarettes until the first 4 weeks was over and I had managed to wean myself off the smokes 5 weeks ago I started this plan with the advice from my good friend and Counselor-Cessation Nurse who I go and visit every week for an update on my progress. My lungs have cleared out the Carbon Monoxide in them I am now a healthy weight now for my size I was a thin 65Kg when I started now I'm near 80Kg at 5"9 I eat like a horse and I only eat good food, I've also been exercising as well something I didn't have the energy for or the mindset, for now, I've got my body and mind back on track again. When I started I had to give up an anti-social lifestyle that was Killing me I was so afraid of what my Mates would think and getting caught driving my car with THC in my system and the paranoid feeling has been lifted up off my shoulders, It is such a relief to put that all behind me now I can get on with the Best of my life I'm 53 years old and not getting any younger and all the Good things in life that I have deprived myself of so I could smoke Cigarettes and get High have already started to come thru the door and I can afford to do the things in life I always wanted to do as a reward. Life is Good and I wouldn't be Dead for Quids, I might be able to get that boat one day I've always wanted and a nice Beast to tow it with one day at a time and I will get there and you will too. Ron
