Dang Lyme disease seems really hard to pin down from what I’ve read. Definitely good to try something that worked for someone who’s been where you are. Hope it helps, and you get some relief soon Windy!

not really sure how I am feeling, Dee. Still working through health stuff-- and just not sure about how things in general are. If I can start to feel better health wise I can kind of move my life forward more. Still craving the feeling of being high but also eager to see how life can unfold without it.

Well done!

15 days is an important milestone. It's harder than many people think. But you made it. Now just keep it going! Proud of you, Windy.

Congrats! What an amazing start!
Word of caution, however. You may get to the point where you think "I got this" and can handle one toke and have control over it. But I guarantee it'll take you right back to where you were 2+ weeks ago.
Stay vigilant. This addiction will never leave you.
Great job!

Thank you my friends your support and having been through this means a lot to me.

Day 17.
so I have these chronic breathing issues for about the past 5 years but they are not really originating from the lungs- like a smoker's breathing issues, it is more like this tightness- n my ribs and chest- hard to explain. At one point it was related to a co infection from lyme and only one dr halfway across the country was able to help me. ( with herbs and supplements).
anyway- it weirdly seems to act up more when I stop smoking. Lie the last ten days the breathing has randomly gotten really bad again-- anyway have a few things I am trying soon to see what helps. But that is making me feel pretty bad still,. I guess one good thing I am noticing is I have a little more energy to get things done.

Still pretty ready to just stay on course and open up my life by staying sober- just working through these health challenges. I have something new am about to start which some have said really helped them, dont' want to get into details but that is what I Am going through now-- also getting a chiropractic adjustment tomorrow cause my ribs are really achy and tight- so maybe that will help some.

So I am glad to be 17 days sober but still not that happy or well. But I know staying sober is the right path for me. Less self loathing though than I had when I first quit, more self love. Just tired of suffering physically.

Day 19 sober. So here's the thing. I realized today that part of my breathing issues is because I have a weak diaphragm- need to work on learning diaphragmatic breathing, and also I a m out of shape particularly in my core, need to work on that. So I just emailed someone who does private therapeutic yoga sessions in my town, who can hopefully work with me one on one to teach me how to correctly strengthen my diaphragm and my core, and work on diaphragmatic breathing which I so much need to strengthen. I think this could be huge for me to have a coach in this because trying to learn it on my own is not working.

It is only because I am not sitting around stoned all day that I am even able to think about this, reach out to someone, and hopefully get this done. so that is a big step towards wellness that being sober is allowing me to try,

I think you need to be realistic too - years of breathing problems, whatever the cause, are not going to be fixed in 19 days - but you have an excellent opportunity to work on them now, windy

congrats on nearly 3 weeks

day 20
did not feel well today. But glad to be sober. Had a cool dream last night - guess that's a benefit of not smoking, being able to dream again.

Keep it up Windy. I agree, sobriety allows us to work on all our issues. Dee has a point too, patience is a key because progress can be slow but steady. Good work!
