day 10 of not smoking ..and still no coughing or phlegm
« on: November 22, 2010, 10:30:28 AM »
I can't understand it, I've been a smoker for so long, why is it that people who have smoked not as long as me get this aweful cough & phlegm when they quit? I'm a little nervous that maybe it means my lungs arent healing?

I don't know...I would be pretty pleased as punch if I wasn't bent over coughing :)

Some people never do after quitting, you know.  You're lucky, I think.

Edit: Never do get the cough I mean.  Of course your lungs are healing.

Hey CG:) Most Excellent work, so far...10 days! Keep on truckin':) HA is a bugger...it even can throw it's worthless two cents in when we are experiencing a huge triumph. Making you feel as though your lungs might not be healing is pure HA bulls#******:) Take a deep breath...enjoy the feeling and know that your lungs ARE healing and thankful:) If you're not coughing, then your body does not need to...don't over analyze that:) Over analyze...do we do that?!:) LOL. Feel Well:)

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

Thank you for the encouragement.  :winking0008:

I told myself this pack I have now was going to be my last pack. I've been planning out different things to do for myself to make this healing process more pleasant and motivational. Taking watercolor classes, setting aside time for strolls with my friends, shopping, day trips, trying out a crazy hair color, etc.
