Cold Turkey

Still not smoking. Still fecking moody and irritable but I can feel my lungs coming alive again. Which is a bit worrying, as normally when I give up my lungs start feeling that they are full of tar, and I haven’t hit that stage yet.

Last night Channel 4 showed “Cold Turkey” which follows Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and Sophie Anderton as they try to kick smoking. Various techniques were used: rapid-smoking, therapy etc. but my favourite is a nice cross section of a ex smoker’s lungs – not very pretty as was a jar of tar. I must have been mad to start smoking.

More Bad Shit

Nazi Nutritionist Dr Gillian McKeith of “You are what you eat” fame compiled her top 12 bad things yesterday which was shown just before the Cold Turkey program.

Here is her list of bad shit

  • Smoking
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Chocolate
  • Pub Snacks – Crisps and Pork Scratchings
  • Processed Meat – Ham and Hot Dogs
  • White Bread
  • Fast Food and Takeaways
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Bad Fats – Biscuits and Chocolate
  • Fizzy Drinks

Bye Bye Caffeine

I have decided to banish caffeine from my life too – already getting headaches. The good news is that I am drinking lots of water, Yogi Tea (with honey) and am even more bad tempered…
