Alright...one more time to quit

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Today I had a prescription for Chantix called in. I am going to be all around healthy. I have tried lozenges, gum, patches, inhalers, wellbutrin, meditation and of course the nothing at all approach. This time I will succeed. There is no sense in losing weight to quit smoking to gain weight. Conquer both at once so I can have the healthy eating habits in place. All the times I have tried either quit smoking or quit fat, I have failed and done more of one or the other. They seem to go hand in hand. If I try to quit smoking I gain weight. If I try to eat correct, then I am smoking more. Like a snack replacement. I will do this. My quit date is 4/4/13. I am getting ready to get it done. Take the meds for a week and pray I don't have a bad affect from them like I did the wellbutrin.
I am sure I could just quit, or so I tell myself that. I like to pretend I have the willpower for it. But, I know I need help. Sometimes things can't be done alone. Sometimes you need a little help.

    Thank you to everyone who has left me encouragement. I know it can be done. I tell my self, if I am going to be healthy, then I need to be healthy all over. It makes me feel so much better to have support. Make me feel accountable. emoticon

    Each time you desire one, tell yourself..wait 5 minutes, the urge will pass. When you want to mindlessly much, chew on ice chips. :) You can do this! HUGS!
