Positive News

Posted by Christine13 Mar 13, 2019

I have some very good news to share.  I was back to see my oral pathologist on Monday.  Because there have been no changes since 2017 I won't need anymore biopsies. He wants to see me again in six months.  I told him I was using wellbutrin now and I felt I had a much better chance at being 100% quit - the perfect quit, with no slips or relapses.

He said he was very curious to see how I do.  I am really encouraged with this news.

What made me feel good was that he is very interested in me keeping quit, and he really cared not just about my gums, but about my health in general.  I said I would start taking care of myself the way I should.


Finally figuring it out.

After all these years of being here and trying to get to 3 months or even 6 or a year.  I remembered back 10 years ago I had a almost 4 month quit and I was taking wellbutrin and using the patch at that time.  Just recently I asked my phychiatrist for wellbutrin again, today is my 3rd day taking it and it's all ready starting to help.  I am also using the nicotine inhaler.  What I see ahead for myself is coming up to see daylight again, I am now on two antidepressants.

Tried to increase one on my own and ended up suicidal.  I never would have done that, because I would never do that to my friends and family, but the feelings were there and they were strong.  Anyway, now that things are getting better I can stick with NOPE and make it!!  I will also put the blog out for help, before I go buy any.  Thanks to my Ex friends for always supporting me no matter what.


Better Days ahead!

If I could I would.  Go for a nice long walk.  I broke a small bone in my foot last Monday.  It's healing and I've been trying to stay off it.  Today however, I'm craving and going to get moving and pick up and vacuum.  Got a boot on so that will help.  I am always in awe at all the incredible things Young at heart does and I'm hoping some of that will rub off on me.  My Dad had a set back and got bronchitis, but hopefully is on the mend now.

I went through a period of depression in February, and now I'm out of that funk and doing better again.

The lure of smoking has been with me every day.  I have started to take better care of myself this last week.  Cooking good healthy meals and taking all prescribed medication.  March can be my bad month, because I had my first major breakdown mentally then and was hospitalized for exhaustion.  Anyway, I want to end this and just say I'm going to make it another good day.  Feeling a bit sad tho right now, i have such a hard time staying quit - just like we all do.

I will look at all the benefits of being smoke free.  Clean hair, time to do my nails and read and crochet, fresh breath, altho in the mornings it feels like jungle breath, LOL.
