Hey all. I hope everyone is doing well. I am doing pretty good. Coming up on 30 days!!! Anyway, I wanted to get some opinions on the smoking issue. Basically when my disease really took off, I picked up smoking. What 30 year old man “starts” smoking??? I did! I have smoked for about 5 years. I always attributed it to drinking. I would say “I like to smoke when I drink”. Well, it turns out I also smoke when I don’t drink.
I feel that smoking is robbing me of feeling “complete recovery”. Meaning, I am not dealing with hangovers anymore, but I don’t really wake up and feel great everyday and I think that has to do with smoking about 10 cigs a day. Also, I will not work out if I’ve smoked that day (saw a documentary once where it said you’re 5 times more likely to have a stroke – after you’ve smoked – while working out). So, every morning I have this will power game of “do I go to the gym or do I smoke”….
The simple and obvious answer is just quit :a043:, but I don’t want to jepordize my sobriety / recover. In a perfect world I would quit them all, but I wanted to get your guys’ take on this.
Thanks in advance. Stay clean everyone!!!
