Sorry guys! It has been ages since I posted my last blog. Well, my L4-L5 disc is herniated in which I am suffering from also, I have 2 bulging discs and 2 protruding disc in my cervical spine area. It has been 6 months since I stopped all my physical activities and I am focusing on my healing and I hope it will.
I was able to cut down the number of sticks a day from a pack to 10 sticks a day, then to seven and down to 5 sticks a day without any trouble. Now, I am trying to make it 3 sticks a day to keep up with my quite active lifestyle in which I am having trouble. I have this cold like sickness and there is a pain at my left lower chest. I was like, “Damn! What are these that I am feeling?” I never had problem quitting drugs abruptly and I was able to manage the cravings, tingling sensations and all of the stuff connected with abruptly quitting drugs. But, why the hell I am having problem quitting cigarettes?
I am reading some articles as of this moment and makes me think that it is quite normal and a clinic located here in Mandaluyong City offers smoking cessation program by using non-invasive medical tool, utilizing acupuncture or acupressure points but quite expensive. You have to pay around PHP 12, 0000 – PHP 15, 000 but there is a disclaimer which makes me doubt the effectiveness. Is there anyone out there can give me any idea on how to manage the side effects of quitting cigarettes?
