Seems like you're up pretty early for a day off Mark. That lack of sleep again? My assumption is that, now that your lungs aren't being hammered by the smoke all the time, you're getting more oxygen and hence are more alert and have more energy. Kinda like the casinos in Las Vegas pumping oxygen to keep people energized through those all-nighters they appreciate...

Keep it up Mark, I bet it gets easier. Eventually at least. ;-)

Hey, enjoy the sunrise. It is just a day after solstice after all.

Do you get the naked women dancing around old thousands of years old stones over in your part of the world?

Next, you'll be out jogging and climbing mountains able to taste the fresh air for the first time.

... And you'll have to knock the 7 pizzas off your checklist for lack of taste...


Hang in there!

Cheers,
Martin

I'm glad to see you are doing with with giving up smoking. I've signed up to quit with a program at work, but only 4 of us have signed up and they need 6 to start a course. I guess I'll just have to puff away until 2 more decide to quit, or until they pay me like elsewhere in the UK; http://newsforums.bbc.co.uk/nol/thread.jspa?forumID=4988&edition=1&ttl=20080621165148

Melatonin is good stuff. It's often used to get sleep cycles back in line by those who travel a lot. For some reason, it did not work well for me. My witch doctor offered to prescribe medication, but the new stuff has some pretty weird side effects. I found I really like an over-the-counter supplement called SleepMD. It has the Melatonin, but also has calming herbs like valerian root. It's more expensive than the melatonin, but I found it worked much better and didn''t leave me fuzzy like the other over the counter stuff.

Keep it up! A tip of the good stuff to you. Since it's Saturday, make it two tips..... Oh, what the hell......

Hmm...valerian......not likely to be available at my local Piggly Wiggly.....I was actually surprised that they had the Melatonin......I bought the one and only bottle they had on the shelf...LOL.

If it does not work out well, I have heard about Valerian root......
Recently, I have found that not sleeping at all works well whilst combined with copious doses of whiskey.....

Valerian Root...works well for a short period. Best way to take it is to be laid in a cup of water and made into a tea.

Problem is it tastes like old sweat socks

Almost 14 days -- Keep up the good work Mark!
Please don't over do the Jack/whiskey.

I use the 3mg Melatonin for those occasional nights where I must get a good night's sleep (7-8 hrs) and so long as I get at least 7hrs solid sleep I have no side effects such as grogginess.
