...one of those days....

...you know (?), sometimes you just have one of those days....one of those days when you feel really down and start to question all kinds of things...well, I am having one of those...btw, this is day 60 for me....normally in the past a day like this I would have gone to bottle shop and gotten a six pack of vb or a couple of longnecks and set back with my beer and my cigs and had a "oh woe is me kind of day"....I didn't duck out for beer, but I did crack open a bottle of wine, but I guess the good thing is I didn't have that automatic sort of default behavior of reaching for a cig as well....I was using champix and I used about eight weeks worth before i stopped  them ....I stopped taking the evening tablet after about five weeks because of the insomnia, and I stopped altogether because they seemed to be interferring with my other medication...any way, I am still glad I stopped smoking...I am suffering a bad cold with the accompaning cough and sore throat...at least I can finally say, the cough isn't because of my smoking....good luck to all of you just starting your quit journey...I am hanging in there and again, so happy I made the decision to finally get off my rear and quit...

    i am happy for you and may appreciate your health for the future. i am having shortness of breath and coughed blood in my mucus this morning. i am in my mid 20's and i have been advised to go to an emergency in hospital asap.
    now i am wondering what could this lead to but i am seriously intending to quit for good now.
    alcohol smoking and unhealthy lifestyle never pays so once again good luck and hope you do well.
