I can't believe it. I quit smoking and switched to the vapour e cigarette. Everything was going good as i cut down in smoking and then for 2 days was only using the vapour e cig. Then i went for my hour walk as i have been doing for a couple weeks now and i got this squeezing pain in my chest. So i went to the hospital and was told it was not my heart but an asthma flare up. Turns out i can't use the e cig. One of the ingredients in it bothers my asthma. I have never had a flare up like that before.

Also i had high blood pressure when i went in. I had 107 and the second time it was 91. Suppose to be 80.

So here i am with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and my asthma is acting up.

I know i need to quit smoking but this is very hard for me to do. I have decided to self talk myself into "I need to take my life back". Hoping i can get some umff to just quit!

On a good note i am eating right and getting in daily exercise. I have also lost another 2 pounds this week. I normally weigh in on Thursdays but i just had to check it today lol.

It is weird too because i am eating really well and with a change in diet i am constipated. I just can't seem to win here. It seems like the devil is at work.

Well just updating here and i hope all of you are doing well! emoticon . My eldest daughter is here visiting and i will catch up on SP in a day or two. Take care!!!

    Does the patch work, (sorry, I've never smoked, so I'm just tossing out suggestions here, ignore them if you want) :D

    Yes, definitely the devil is blocking you, and the reason he's throwing so much at you, is because he knows how strong you are.

    Take that strength and throw it right back at him and tell him, "NO WAY, I'll overcome this and you aren't stopping me" then prove to him you will not let him win.

    I hope everything starts improving, how can it not when you have God on your side, right? Have a beautiful week!! We can get through this, guaranteed!
