Thank God for my Friends and Family

Monday, March 18, 2013

As many of you know I have been trying to kick the nicotine habit. I have been very lucky because the urges have been few and far between. This past weekend I was at a party celebrating my birthday and had a few alcohol drinks. Now I know that alcohol is one of my triggers but I have drank since I quit smoking and the urges weren't really there. But that night they came on strong. Let me just say that I had told everybody earlier that evening that I had quit and everyone was so happy for me. As I was sitting there enjoying the night the urge to light up a cigarette was a 11 on a scale from 1 to 10. I had expressed my urge for a cigarette and even asked for one. When I was talking about wanting a cigarette everyone was like "no you've come to far" and "you don't need that or want that" I decided against smoking because I want to stick to not smoking. So I am happy to say that I did not smoke and I feel great about it!!! I am so thankful to be around such wonderful people who support, love and care about me I couldn't have dome that without them. I am proud to say that I am 28 day's nicotine free and still going strong!
