very bad day

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

this has been one of the hardest days i have had since i quit smoking. no nicotine and no stop smoking drugs for a few days. i don't think it could be much worse if i were addicted to crack or heroin. its been very painful not just physically but mentally. i have kept myself busy exercising house work maybe the next thing will be to detail the car which i will have to do since i don't smoke in it anymore. maybe i will work in the yard and map out my spring garden. i should replace that broken window. no matter what i decide to do taking this time to think about it makes me feel so much better. so glad i have this forum. gotta go to work. Here's to tomorrow

    it is absolutely wonderful knowing so many people have my back. even this day has been hard, it has inspired me to continue this journey. according to the bible, the race is not given to the swift or the strong but to who makes it to the end. thank you all. Here's to tomorrow

    Quitting smoking was one of the hardest demons I've ever had to deal with . I feel your pain and frustration but hang in there it will get better. I use to go where people were smoking to get a smell of it, that would remind me of what I use to smell like. Now I'm one of those non smokers who tell people to move away from doorways because it's so nasty.
Good luck stay strong emoticon

    Smoking is a terrible demon - I know. Stopping was a great thing for you and me. All those awful feelings will pass. One day at a time.

    thanks, from time to time i let myself get caught up in how bad things are rather than being thankful for how good life is. just have to remind myself occasionally that even though not smoking is hard it is also the best thing i can do for myself. i have to get myself out of my own head and focus on where i am going rather than where i have been. Here's to tomorrow

    Maybe make yourself a list of the things around you that remind you of smoking that you can change. Detailing your car and removing as much of the smoke smell would be a great place to start.

Crossing off accomplishments on a to do list always makes me feel AWESOME.
