Aw thanks Dee. When you said “home” it gave me a few tears. I’m glad to be back home.
Yay! Spiff! :)
Thanks Dee, I hear you. You are right, we should also relax into this
Greetings NOPEvembers! Lets take this week by the horns
1 Month today!
Feeling good so far.
It is time to start cutting down on my eating though. I have let it get out of control this last month. I have gained 5 lbs despite putting more time in on the treadmill. Apparently replacing cigarettes with ice cream sandwiches is not the right path.
I don't find myself craving a cigarette much but I do have this sense of malaise. A feeling like something is missing. It seems to be lessening as time goes on which is nice.
Happy Monday everyone. Only retired people generally say such a thing.
No smoking going on here.
Well done Steve!
On 1 Month Steve!
You said. "I don't find myself craving a cigarette much but I do have this sense of malaise. A feeling like something is missing. It seems to be lessening as time goes on which is nice. "
Steve, I guarantee you if you keep on this path of cessation it will lessen to a point where you will think of smoking as just something you used to do.
Thank you. That's very encouraging. In my previous attempts I would get to this point and some strange wave of self pity would derail me. I feel a lot more in control this time. I don't feel like I am "giving up" smoking, I feel like I am overcoming a disease. So when I hear long time ex-smokers reinforce the notion that the eventually I will be able to live a normal life again its very encouraging.
