Step 2 on patches

Blog Post created by constanceclum on Mar 4, 2017

I was a little surprised when I woke up this morning and realized that I had used my last 21mg patch yesterday but no worries, I am ready to step down. I now have 26 days of freedom and, with Feb. being a short month, I will have a month on Mon. and I now have 530 cigarettes that I have not smoked.


I had such a good mental health day yesterday that I'm doing it again today. Added bonus that my husbands off and he's cooking baby backs. 


I am in such a good place mentally and physically now that it's worth the agony I went through during hell/heck week.


I just wish everyone that has gone through the quitting process could have good health. I know our health is always improved when we quit but reading what people go through here, smoking related and not, just breaks my heart. I can feel pretty good when I don't smoke and have minimal exertion but I know this COPD does not get better and I don't get nearly enough exercise.


Wishing everyone a day of peace,
