Hi all, like to share my experience with you guys. I have been a smoker and drinker since early teen. Never knew why I have been doing so. I am now approaching 57yo and have been running low on breath lately. The was that time back in 1993 when I stopped smoking for 7 years coz I had newborn baby at the time. It lasted until me and my partner split up. The stress of the time lead me back to smoking and drinking again. It's also been after 2000 that I have been trying a couple of times. Longest was last year 3 months without due to my gallbladder surgery. After healing I went back to same again. Now 2021 I really want to be able too quit for good no matter what. So here we go. First week of my quitting was a bit hard, I experienced a lot of anxiety, vivid dreams and restlessness. The anxiety has moved away but these warped dreams remain. I tend to remember them as well something that I didn't do before if I really was dreaming then. Another thing I notice is I find it a bit easier to breathe now and with not a bad taste in my mouth anymore. Better appetite and clear eyes. Still from time to time coughing up mucus and the wheezing from deep inside doesn't seem to be there anymore either. My nose gets very blocked at times during day and night very difficult for me to handle but I try using nasal spray too cope. Aldo my insomnia at night is a hard nut too crack. Sometimes I don't fall asleep until three o'clock in the morning with only 3-4 hours sleep, have to be up early for the animals. Anyway that's my share for today. Thanks for you guys time if reading this. Good luck to everyone here trying or having succeeded. Take care now
