    smokers!!

    Well had a wee half day of work the day as a had a hospital appointment as sometimes a get numb legs and sore belly, so off i went today and the docs news put a little spanner in the works as av been smoking since i was 18 and am only 29 now and not a heavy smoker prob 10 or less a day!! so had few scans with bad results and been told that its blood clots which are affecting my legs n belly had a wee think and little upset now as av to go back in for surgery! the fact that my legs will be scarred where they cut as well as my belly has shocked me but its just my luck as i seem to get good turns with the motor working ect and then a bad incident.. so not good news today and now going to try my hardest to wein off the fags.
    Advice is dont smoke or if you do get regular health checks and the docs will give you a nasty shock!!

    I tried champix & had to come off them after a week seeing as I was having delusions and seeing/hearing things that were not their. Very scary I would not recommend it! Try the patch

    Patches work well, just don't sleep with them on. They used to give me strange dreams, and I used to wake alot with them.

    Going back on them sometime soon, gonna give it another go (I went back to smoking at 6 months quit, was nothing to do with the patches)
