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.
