I got a health scare...

Postby holly80 » Mon Mar 10, 2008 11:47 am

Hey guys, I joined a little while ago and have been really slack. But I am back, and hopefully going to make a real go of this.
I went to the dr today to get a blood test. I asked the lady who was doing it why my arm always goes funny when I get a blood test. I told her my whole arm goes stiff and my fingers feel really weird and she told me I have slow blood cerulation. So thats given me a bit of a scare as my best friends dad just died from a heart attack.
So I have come home, drinking heaps of water, mowed the back yard for some excerise and I am going to make a salad for lunch. Plus I am going to quit smoking tommorrow. I have 4 left so I will just enjoy them and thats it. Its the smoking I am more concerned about, I am so scared I wont be able to quit :oops: :roll: :shock: :(
So I will make more of an effort to jump on here and get to know you all and joion in

Hi Holly
Good on you for making the change. Quiting smoking will make a huge improvement on your health, good luck for tomorrow on your first day smoke free. If you feel the need to have a smoke just jump online for support.

It's brilliant that you're quitting smoking! I'm sorry it was the result of a health scare, but you are going to feel so much better when you kick the habit! I quit smoking over seven years ago and it's the best thing I ever did. It's certainly not easy, but it's definitely worth it. Good luck! I know you can do it!

Hi Holly, I'm new to this forum too. You are doing the right thing, giving up the smokes.

I look forward to reading your progress.

Does anyone have any ideas on how not to have one. I really believe its the habit and routine thats addictive.... Like wake up have one, lunch time at work have one, after dinner have one, etc etc etc... I am soooooo sooooo soooo nervous about doing this... I dont wanna fail but I dont feel to positive about it to be honest.

My hubby will kill me if he see's me smoking now, after I have told him this..

P.S - I know in the end I need to want it to make it happen. I do, but I just fell nervous about it thats all.. Every one I know is a smoker

I suggest you call the QUIT line or go speak to your chemist and get on the nicorett patches.

Quiting cold turkey will be hard; and if you gradually wean yourself off the smokes, you will find it easier to succeed.

Holly.... firstly you are to be commended on making this change !!

It is always much easier said than done, however the commitment and determination that you are showing proves that you will conquer this :)

It is the scariest thing when you feel your body reacting before you. It took me having heart pulpitations for approx. 5hrs of the day to do what you're doing. That's when I realised that my body had commenced deteriorating and was showing all the tell tale signs. Good on you for nipping this on the butt and getting straight into it :)

Thanks heaps. Well I just finsihed my last full smoke. Only got half left now, so this should be interesting lol

I am actually finding that water is really good to stop the cravings when i want one.
