Well, it's been 12 days since I had my last cigg. I am doing pretty good. The only time that I want one is when I am arouind my boyfriend who smokes, but even then I don't want one all the time. Just when I feel a little uptight.
I had my new student orientation at the college yesterday and I can hardly wait to start school, but I wanted a smoke when I first came out of the school for just a couple of minutes. The craving passed pretty quick though.
I am so proud of myself! I have gone 32 hours now with not even one puff of a cigg. It really hasn't been bad. I have had some withdrawl, but for the most part, I am doing it without too much effort, and I was smoking 2 packs a day. Wish me luck.
I am not a nurse yet, but my sister-in-law is and she smokes. I smoke as well and would like to quit before even starting my classes. I heard that "you can't be a nurse unless you smoke". I feel like I am such a hypocryt for smoking and wanting to be a nurse at the same time, but I also know from reading all of the threads that nursing can be a very stressful job. I am sure that I am not the only one with this problem, but I do feel guilty. Does anyone else? Not judging in any way.
I know what it's like to to have pneumonia,and I feel for you. I am upset because I just had surgery for a cyst the size of an egg that wasn't there. I went through that surgery for no reason whatsoever. I don't have insurance, and so far am in debt over $8,000.00. Last year I didn't have insurance either, and I had to have my gallbladder removed, so I am still in debt for that one. I don't have it right now, but those medical bills really eat you up for sure. I hope you feel better real soon. Christina
I am so happy that there is so much support here. I want to thank you for all of the uplifting comments. You all just don't know what it means to me to know that I am not alone. I can hardly wait to get started on my new future career.
Hi! I am new here. I just wanted to see if there is anyone else out there that is feeling the way that I do. For most of my life I have loved helping people. I have had jobs where I have worked in nursing homes taking care of the elderly, and I have worked in a job taking care of 3 retarted and physically disabled men. I loved taking care of these people. I am not a nurse, or a CNA. I am signed up to take college classes at a state college that offers nursing. I begin in January of 03. I am 41 years old right now, and am thinking about going for RN. They tell me that I won't actually get to take any nursing classes until fall of 04, that is, if I pass the NET test, and get accepted into nursing. I guess I am just wondering if anyone else started out for nursing as late as I am. I feel sometimes that maybe I am too old to go into this career. Please, if anyone else is out there that started off late like me, please reply. I feel alone.
