3 days and 10 hours
On my break at work, it’s now 3 days and 10 hours without a ciggie.
Things are starting to get a lot better, my patch is the one I was wearing yesterday as I forgot to put a new one on this morning, but hey ho it seems to be ok. I do have a spare one in my pocket for emergencies, but as I’m staying at my folks tonight to watch the England World Cup Match against Uraguay then I’m saving it till then, just in case and because I’ll be staying at my folks overnight with no access to my patch cache for a day.
These patches seem to be pretty long-lasting though. I have had a bit of a stressful day but I feel no pangs to get a ciggie or even bite off some innocent’s head, nothing like that at all.
Last night I had a dream about turning up to an interview and there was someone else there with exactly the same name as me but there was only one name on the interview list. I marched out in a strop being sworn at by the recruiters.
I reckon that there’s something in this, these patches give me dreams that I remember, not too out there but dreams anyhow. Other patches do nothing at all – perhaps they’re all out of juice by nightfall and others give me the Beatles Yellow Submarine surreal cartoon dreams, which are really groovy – the correct vernacular I believe 🙂
I should become a Nicotine patch dream reviewer, now there’s a website that’s probably not been done, a rarity nowadays but between hamster fur weaving and Antarctic nightclub reviews there’s little that hasn’t.
Anyway my mouth feels good, my skin too has perked up today, I noticed this morning that my face felt more “fleshy” which is always a good sign. I have developed a little cough today though, nothing serious but I’ll take that over the chestiness any day. The chestiness is better, but I can still feel it as a problem, give it a few more days and hopefully that will sort itself out.
There’s another benefit to giving up smoking, it’s never really been a problem for me though but I expect it could be for some people.
The fleshy face feeling does extend to other parts of the male anatomy, the slightly limp cigarette on the warning panels of packs might give you a better idea of what I’m talking of. I have never suffered erm completely from this, but you do notice that things become a little more fleshy and pokey when one gives up smoking. Believe me, if you do have a problem with your nobbly bits and making them more erm willing then giving up smoking could be the answer to all yoru dreams.

Started taking Glucosamine again this morning, tested it with some Omega 3 fish oil, hopefully these may clear up my slight knew problem before I start running again at the weekend. I’ve just ordered a brand new pair of Asics GT 2000 v2 running shoes in standard width and in the blue, black and white livery, very nice. I’ve bought the Asics GT 2xxx range for years now, they’ve been brilliant, I’ve rarely had any problems with them, my knee I reckon is really due to the heavy clutch on my car, though I could be wrong. Still my old pair of Asics have done some miles now, so they were due a change.
