I need to start somewhere, so today is THE day.

Quit smoking June 25, 2009. Today is Day 1.
So far . . . not as scarey as I thought it would be. I read a lot to get prepared for today. I'm trying to think positive thoughts of myself. I quickly disregard any negative thoughts....I Can do this!!!

Day 2 is going far. I'm Determined and feeling confident that I Can succeed with quitting. When the crave comes, I've been drinking lots of water, and distracting my mind with other thoughts as quickly as possible. I do not want to be a smoker. I do not want to be embarrassed by it anymore. I do Not want to be addicted to anything! I want to live, laugh and continue to love and be there for my family and friends. Smoking is disgusting! It stains your teeth, makes your smell bad, and ruins your health! I hated having to hide that I smoked from people, because I was so embarrassed. Not anymore!! This is it! I'm feeling relieved's been on my mind for a long time. I'm finally doing something about it.

Day 3 and I'm still determined that I can do this. The urge comes and then finally goes. Everytime it enters my mind, I stop that thought, I cannot let it control me. It reminds me of when I think I need some really fattening food, and I drop the thought, so I'm not fixated with it. I don't Need it! I'm using that same tactic with this addiction. I don't need it!

Day 4, and I feel really good about myself. I don't smoke! I read that the nicotine withdrawal should be over with by now. One day at a time. I feel great!
Thanks for all the positive and healing energy you've sent my way, Shar!

Day 5 and my family is still alive *wink*
I want to remind myself by writing this, that I NEVER want to go thru this again! I am proud of myself for staying strong and not giving into the urge. But I do NOT want to go thru withdrawal Ever again! I want to keep this quit forever! I'm doing it! Keep the Quit!

Day 6 ` I woke up and did Not even think about one!! I feel good! I've changed My morning schedule to having yogurt, first thing, in place of the cancer stick. So far I haven't gained any weight. I like being free!

Day 7 ~ It's getting easier every day. Keeping busy, drinking lots of water (sometimes I think I could drown Lol!) Re-Reading articles at It's a mind set, I think. I Need to be in control of my life.
