  4. Actually our sleep is the most important thing in our lives. We will definitely die without Delta and Rem levels of sleep. Our bodies do not rejuvenate, memories aren’t made. Eventually, we become mentally unstable and are worse than perpetually drunk. And of course, it will destroy your heart, but in your madness, you won’t even notice. That’s why it’s called torture!! Sadly, some of us suffer from this disorder, and there is no cure. My specialist called it death by 1000 cuts.

My only question is how does one manage to get enough calories from vegetables and fruits alone? It would seem rather difficult – as fruits and especially vegetables tend to be very dilute sources of caloric intake.

    • It has been successful 25 days that i have left smoking. I am a patient of high blood pressure and i am on meds (Amlo). Initially it was a tough decision and despite of deciding, i was unable to survive for even a day and end up smoking a ciggerate.
      Motivation is the key. I downloaded a app to help me quit. It shows how many days i was smoke free and helped me to keep up. Self motivation is only that can help. There are many app for this. Now after 25 days of smoke free lungs, i feel full of oxygen and can actually breath deep.
