I just hope it lasts....today is Day 6 no smoking or alcohol....My lungs feel much better today, I can almost take a slow deep breathe without hacking and coughing, the air actually smells sweet. I'm still wheezing but it's eased up about 30%, my throat still feels hot inside, like a sore throat when you have a cold.
Driving into work this morning I had time to reflect about how my body feels, unchained from the cigs and alcohol. I felt like a weight has lifted off my shoulders, I realized that I REALLY COMMITTED THIS TIME to get healthy, I no longer have to worry about the $200/mo I spent on cigs and the $70 I spent on 4, 1/2 Gals of Whipped Cream Vodka I drank (usually right out of the bottle) a month that's like $350 gross income a month, that's $4250 a year....hey that sounds like a new car pmt or vacation to Hawaii, etc....My clothes and hair don't stink. I'm confident in my journey towards health, I AM UNCHAINED!!!
