4 months into '09

Saturday, May 02, 2009

Well, there have been some changes going on around here. I've finally gotten over all my fears of quitting smoking and took the 'plunge' yesterday and went on the patch. I haven't had a cigarette since 4/30/09. I'm really gonna do this, this time. I've been keeping up on my exercise which is really, really helping with the cravings I do have. I had cut down to approx. 6-8 per day for months prior to quitting completely. The fact that my mom and step dad quit the same day and also went on the patch helps to. This is such a big step for me and a bit weird too...but in a good way. I can't believe I smoked for over 18 year's!!! It still feels so liberating and free to not have cigarettes controling my life. I'm hoping that along with keeping my current exercise regimine and eating habits I can control any weight gain I might get as aresult of not smoking. It's so empowering to here myself say "I'm a non-smoker!"
