Let me start by saying I am STUPID!! Stupid, stupid stupid! I walked to my Quit Clinic appointment in a pair of trainers that I have not worn in over 2 years. On the way home I remembered why I have not worn said trainers for over 2 years…the little blisters that developed on both my little toes reminded me. It wouldn’t be so bad if while putting these shoes on I hadn’t asked myself, Do you really want to wear shoes that you haven’t worn for so long, what if they hurt your feet?
Stupid is as stupid does – Forrest Gump
The walk to the clinic was beautiful (my feet were not hurting yet). The sun was out and there was a nice cool breeze (Damn it, I knew I should have run there like I said I would yesterday). Oh well…serves me right!
We arrived early and so I got seen by the nurse early, which is cool. I told her how the last 9 days have been for me since I quit smoking and she took my Carbon Monoxide reading, last week it was 25, today it was….drum roll please…
Yup, I am pleased…actually it could have been zero but the nurse pointed out that her machine does not read any lower than one…I don’t care! She is really pleased with how I have done, but not as pleased as I am with myself, that’s for sure! Anyway, I have a prescription for more patches and inhalator cartridges and I have another appointment for next Tuesday. I think next week she may change the patches and inhalator to a lower nicotine dose but we will see.
On the way home it was sunny for all of about 10 minutes…then it clouded over really quickly and before I even had a chance to say to Steve “Oh Steve, I think it’s going to rain”, it p***ed it down! The rain then turned to hail stones, oh joy! By the time we got home we were soaked!
Anyway, I am off I as I have a guest arrive…
