Hi, Sue!

Identifying yourself as a non smoker is a milestone in itself. blush You are absolutely right in continuing to take this a day at a time and to continue learning. Staying close to the forum and posting really helps.

Enjoy your dip in the pool!

Hugs,

Andrea

Andrea,. What a wonderful story.  I am making through the day, my mood matches the rainy weather.  I am happy that I don't feel the urge to smoke, but would like to be a little less sad.  I know it comes with the process.  I just felt like visiting our new Quit Buddies group.  All the best-Michelle

It's great to have you here, Michelle! It's raining here, too. I'm in upstate New York. The snow in my neighbors' backyard is now a small pond.

This will get better, Michelle. Stay close to the forum.

You are doing this! blush

Hugs,

Andrea

P.S. This picture brightens my day even with the rain.

It' beautiful.  I'm on Long Island, so most of the snow is gone except where the plows made 10 foot mountains.  They are about 5 feet now.  I am hanging in and have stayed strong with my NOPE pledge today.  Thanks Andrea :)

Hello everyone,  here we are in our new home.    I am nearly 2 weeks into this quit and intend to make it to 2 years and beyond.  Even early on you notice small things - like I am a bit more active at the gym for one.  Stopping smoking is really a whole life change.

See you all by the pool.

Moving forward with you

I'm still with you all, halfway through day 9 and climbing. I think I'm still in the early caffeine WD stage, my mid/low back has been driving me crazy the past 2 days. I'm still not sleeping well and then waking up too early, I'll be happy when this phase passes.

All in all, it really hasn't been as bad as I had it built up to be in my mind, so it may be advantageous to have a vivid imagination with catastrophic thinking!

I hope everyone else is doing well, I'll catch up with you by the pool this evening.

Hang on in there Stephanie.How wonderful you are climbing through the days like that.Day 9 is getting into your second week .

I am sorry your bac is so painful .Do you have  a bath to soak in s you could chuck in some epsom salts and lavender .Its really soothing and of course you cant smoke in the bath.I am guilty of soaking in the bath while drinking herb tea,reading a book and having a soothing candle going too.

Enjoy your time at the pool tonight

Hi Sue

Hope all is well with you. At last I am able to start cleaning the house again. It's amazing how I can now smell things more (even dust). I thought it was better just to rest, sip water etc and not worry too much about anything but now I seem to be finding some energy to pretty the place up a bit again. Looking forward to having a dip in the Freedom '16 pool later too.

Talk again  soon. Anne-Marie
