Made up my Mind

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I thought a lot yesterday and a lot more last night and early this morning. What all of my friends comments had said and what I thought finally came together. I can plan all I want but when push comes to shove I just have to DO IT.
I chose tomorrow, May 24th as my quit date. I know I can do this. I am drawing my focus away from other areas of my plan right now to deal directly with stopping this smoking for good.
I know that while I am focusing on quitting I might not be as vigilant about other things, but that's okay. I am only one person and I can only do so much at a time. SO, little by little, hour by hour I will take my mind off smoking and at the same time continue to develop or maintain the good habits I have and am forming regarding healthy eating so I feel good, walking and exercises that I do daily to keep active and occupied and try to get some decent sleep. I have joined a stress challenge to go to to help cope with the stress I know I am going to have and between that and my teams and all my friends, I couldn't ask for a better support system.
Thanks to everyone who left comments and suggestions regarding how I might be able to proceed. They have led me to a Healthy and happy decision.

    Gini, it makes all the sense in the world to deal with one thing at a time, and quitting smoking should be a priority for you AND your family. The rest will come, but you can only do so much at once. Best to you!! Really proud of you for sticking with your plan and efforts! Hugs, Jeannie

    OK sweet friend.....
Rest if you need to there is healing in sleep during this time. Cold water to drink, drink, drink, Showers to wash away the nicotine, and stop worrying about anything and everything else! emoticon emoticon
