Morning number 4
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday my lungs felt pretty battered and bruised when I woke up.
Today they felt better. Perhaps that fits in with the 72 hour part of my stop smoking healthcards.
20 minutes my blood pressure returns to normal
24 hours- Carbon Monoxide is eliminated from my body. My lungs start to clear of mucus (not mine yet)
48 hours No nicotine is left in my body (bit daft as I'm using a patch) Taste and smell improves. (Only slightly-minimally so far)
72 hours my breathing becomes easier and my energy levels increase. Not the same as "Your lungs don't feel battered and bruised" but it'll do.
These little benchmarks have a positive effect. I am particularly looking forward to the mucus bit- but don't
But it should have an entry along these lines "After 4 days your brain will stop feeling like mush and you'll actually be able to do some work and stop confusing 'your' with 'you're' as I have already done twice this morning.
Improved smelling - good.
Improved spelling - essential.
