I am being honest here and if it helps just one person over the line to keep trying it was worth it
Its been over a year and am going strong. I havent had a cig in all that time. I was just reminiscing about this time last year and how far I have come. I was 3mths in of not smoking and and one week in after my brain tumor op. I remember thinking at the time how much harder it would have been for me if I was still smoking, there was no possible way I would have made it through the other side as the journey of recoup is still happening but no need for smoking has definitley been a huge plus. Also they werent going to op if I was smoking and still had to wait 90 days before they would do the 7 hour operation, as the smoke from the cigs would still be trapped in my sinus area and when they took the tumor out(size of golf ball) the brain would collapse,causing brain fluid to colapse.Its been really really hard,have had heaps of rehab to walk, talk ,put my thoughts into action, and am so grateful I dont have smoking into the mix.
There are a few of us that have gone through this journey together and have had to fight battles, its been extremely hard for all of us. Just do it... no excuses, because that is all they where/are. The freedom is wonderful, I really enjoy so many more things without worrying about when I can have a smoke.
Hope this helps someone, and you will get over the emotions and the maddness it takes you through. Take care and stay strong
