Day 3 and I have the urge, but am still fighting it.

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

I am trying to stay busy. Yesterday I cleaned the house and organized to keep myself busy during down time. I unfortunately did snack quite a bit yesterday. Hopefully if I eat lite today I can make up for yesterday so i don't show a gain at weigh in. That would really suck.

Just reminders to myself why I am doing this...as if I need reminders.

    You can do it.

    I quit 12 years ago due to my lung collapsing. I had no choice. For years I still craved that cigarette after a good meal or when at a bar with friends. It was about 4 years ago, we were out with a bunch of friends and when one of the girls lit up, I said, "let me have a drag." My husband was soooooo mad and threatened to leave me there if I smoked. Well, no one was telling me what to do, so I took the drag. It was the grossest thing ever. My husband did walk out, I ran after him yelling, "eww, it was gross". I haven't craved it since.

    To help - drink lots of water. Don't fold to the oral thing or you'll be eating everything in site. When you crave, drink 8 oz. of water and take a quick walk.

    I smoked for 33 years and tried to quit several times. When my BFF had a heart attack in 2008, they told her that she had to quit smoking and gave her a prescription for Chantix. I decided that I would quit to make it easier on her and I needed to quit anyway so I took it too. After 12 days and a bunch of CRAZY dreams, I put the cigarettes down and have never touched another one. Every once in a great while I will want one but it doesn't last long. I got my sense of smell back and everything tastes different. I'm not smelling like an ashtray anymore, no more stained teeth, no more dirty looks and I've already "saved" over $7000.00 by not smoking. Those are all very good reasons to quit but the biggest is my health. I went into heart failure and had open heart surgery about 6 months after I quit smoking and my surgeon told me that I wouldn't have even lived through that surgery if I had still been smoking! My Mother died from pancreatic cancer which is directly linked to smoking. She quit about a month before she died and said "I'd rather die than quit smoking". At that point it was too late and we knew that she was not going to make it so she smoked until the end. So sad, she was my best friend and such a wonderful person! Good luck emoticon and God Bless! emoticon

    I quit almost 7 years ago, and left behind the chronic sinusitis and bronchitis, the coughing and the nasty smell. It's SO worth it! Don't give up on yourself!!!

    YOU CAN DO THIS!!
