Day 6 - Quitters Flu
« on: April 24, 2018, 08:52:15 am »
 002

Bargaining & depression yesterday.

Today - death by tissue!
Non-smoking life commenced: 19th April 2018.
Smoking history: 17 years' chainsmoking - 10 v quiet day, 20 typical, 40 easy on a boozy night - and there were many, many boozy nights. Weapon of choice: roll ups.
Quit weapon of choice: cold turkey, hot baths, this forum!

Ah no, you seem to be having all the possible side effects at once @Burners  :(

But, chin up and try to stay positive.  It WILL get better as everyone on here can testify and you will feel better as a non smoker.  I do hope your cold clears up quickly.  007
Smoked for most of my adult life (and a fair bit of my childhood!).  Managed a two year quit 2014-2016 but started again!  Quit again on 6th January 2018 and lasted 7 months!  Back on the wagon again now...........

Oh the dreaded quitters flu! Poor old you @Burners - it's horrid, but just think of all those nasty toxins leaving your body forever. Your body is re-booting and you just have to hang on in there whilst it does its thing.  :hug: :hug:
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

So many mountains, so little time...

Haha! You guys are pushing me forward great!!! Thanks so much!

I feel like I'm getting all of it out of the way real fast and hopefully then I'll be at the good stuff! ☺️☺️☺️ It makes you realise just how bad it must have been!!

I reckon you could get all of the bad stuff out of the way in one fell swoop. Then you will see all of the good things like a manicure lasting longer, skin glowing, money in the bank.....and be all woohoo  :foundbeer:!
