Wegener's Granulomatosis :: Nervous System Attacked - Feet Swollen Feet, Dead Fingers

I have been diagnosed with WG and am on the usual medication.

WG attacked my nervous system. My feet are swollen and movement is painful. At night the swellings subsided but the moment I get up and move around the swelling flares up.

My hands have also been affected. The fingers are dead, no feeling and no muscle movement possible - cannot use the left hand at all. The right hand I can still use but the skin feels numb.

I Wish To Quit Smoking

My name is Ivar. I'm 21 years old, from Europe.

My profession is cook. But currently I'm working 2 jobs, sales agent and consultant in electronics store.

I also skateboard and play video games in my free time. Like any young adult.

Why am I here?

Well, I wish to quit smoking. That's the main reason.

So far I've come to two ends, which is:

First I will try hypnosis, and if that doesn't work out, then I'll get some champix and **** myself up.

Gave Up Smoking After Hypnosis

I gave up smoking on 20th January after hypnosis. Thought by now I would be feeling fine. I just don't feel well. I have had panic attacks feel more breathless than I did before I stopped. Wish my doctors did an after care service but nobody wants to know. What are your experiences.

Stopping Smoking After 37 Years

I smoked for 37 years from the age of nine. I have tried to quit many times but can say now in hindsight that I never really tried, I just pretended to myself that I was trying. Some times I stopped smoking and had a cigarette less than an hour later but made up an excuse and continued to "try" stopping. I never actually admitted to failing until I was back on my usual 20 or 30 a day.

In January I decided to give it a go again but this time I went to a stop smoking group. This will not work for all people but it did for me so I am happy. Somebody at the group came out with the idea that everyone at the group should get into their heads that the minute you have 1 cigarette then you have failed. I am a naturally competitive person and this really worked in gettting me motivated. I did not want to be the one that failed.

In the group we were given help with products and I chose to use patches and lozenges. I used the patches for 6 weeks and the lozenges for about 12 but do not use either now. There seems to be this perception amongst internet posters that if you use stop smoking products then you didn't do it properly and its far better to stop "cold turkey" Personally I think it's the result that counts not how you get there.

I have now gone almost 8 months without a cigarette and still get the cravings now and again. But I just keep saying to myself "if you have 1 cigarette you have failed".

Smoking :: Addicted To NRT Lozenges

I gave up smoking about 2 1/2 years ago and have been addicted to NRT lozenges ever since. I started on the 4mg, went down to the 2mg, then onto the 1mg.

I promised myself that if I could give up smoking, it was better to use NRT, unfortunately (in some ways) I now find NRT much better than smoking and find it difficult to give them up.

Ironically, they are expensive, so you can end up spending a lot on them. I went back to a give-up smoking group but they were more concentrated on the smokers than me with my addiction, so that didn't help.

I wish there was another grade down from 1mg, e.g. 1/2mg followed even by 1/4mg, to help those who can't come off the NRT eventually do it. I'm sure that would help in my case.

However I feel that once you're on NRT no one really wants to help any further, after all it's safe and it's making profits for the drug companies.

After Smoking Cannabis For 10 Years ...

I am 25 and have been smoking cannabis almost every day for the past 10 years. The last 8 years this has been entirely skunk, and it's normal for me to spend anywhere between £50 and £70 a week on it. I do smoke it with tobacco but have managed to give up cigarettes a year ago.

Despite this I have passed college and got myself a degree - and I now have a well paid respectable job.

However, I have noticed that my memory is pretty lousy and its really affecting my work. I also get chest tightness and pains which is why I really want to give up (as well as the money). I am pretty unmotivated hence I rarely cook meals or exercise. My social skills are also poor and can only strike up a conversation with somebody if I've had a few drinks. When I am stoned, I find it difficult to hold a conversation - simply cos I don't want to - and most evenings consist of staring at the TV all evening not even noticing what I am watching.

2 years ago i split up with my fiance (and baby) as she could no longer put up with my smoking and mood swings (which can be really bad for no apparent reason). (i chose weed over them as I didn't see why I should change - however we were no longer in love so I suppose it was inevitable)

I gave up for about 10 days a few months back - the first 3 days were really hard (lack of sleep, agitation)and I vowed not to go back to it. However, I live in a small town and ALL my friends smoke weed (including my brother who I live with)so was soon back into the swing of things. Almost all my friends and brothers friends do the usual Crack, Coke Pills MDMA Base etc on a regular basis but I've always been able to control my use of these. I'm up to my eyeballs in debt (mainly from drink and drugs) so cannot afford to move to a flat of my own. I feel I can't get away from it despite remembering how much better I felt when i gave up.

I agree there should be more help, but I still don't think its necessarily a bad thing. I know some people who can take it or leave it so why should it be illegal just because some people take it too far. I think a large risk at the moment is highly pollutes "soap bar" and skunk pumped full of chemicals, glass filings (to increase weight), and flavourings. If it were legal to grow for your own use, I'm sure many people would have less of a problem with it.

Smoking :: Stoptober Challenge - What Can I Eat?

I am doing the Stoptober challenge as I knew that I needed to because of the pending surgery, the diabetes and the fact that my breathing was getting worse.

But this is in relation to the diabetes side of things. As my appetite returns what can I eat?, I ask this simply because I can eat like an horse. I can't have citrus fruits, strawberries, raspberries and grapes do nothing for me, also sweet, cakes, biscuits etc... I am limited, as I try to avoid nuts, nor because of any allergies, simply because it is like taking a bottle of syrup of figs. The only thing that I enjoy is sandwiches, toast...etc. But need to be careful so not to put on too much weight.

COPD :: Feeling Better With Smoking

I foolishly went back to smoking a while back because I feel BETTER when I smoke. I stopped, but get tempted because my breathing is much better when I do! I know it is insane, but has anyone experienced this? When I quit My breathing was much worse. I think it has to do with waking up your lungs, clearing them out, so you become sob. But I swear when I did smoke, I felt fine! So crazy.
