Hi Michele! You're right. It won't change anything. 

I went to a bossa nova concert instead. 

I was dragging myself on the way there and feeling really doomed and sorry for myself. I was actually contemplating smoking but not before I read all these posts carefully. 

I delayed the cigarette as much as I could and the concert really lifted my mood. I also ate a lot of sugar free halls. They warned me to be careful about eating too many but I was feeling like a rebel without a cause anyway. 

Thanks for reaching out :)

Hi Debbie

When I wrote you about having episodes of anger/sadness before repectors shutting down I think an image was created in my mind. Now I always see this image:

And I'm so afraid to have nicotine in my system and I really don't want to wake up the sleeping receptors. 

I guess this time I've managed - with a little help from my friends

Hi June :) 

Michael sealey is an addiction of mine. I recommend it to every insomniac! 

I'm going to try the daily motivator. It seems great :) 

Thanks for taking the time to share these gems with me :)

I've made it, Cindi :) 

I'm going to bed smoke-free today! I loved having your key here. It reminds me that I have a long way. "as year from year you'll wish you'd started now" 

Let's do this :)

Hi Brenda 

Those hugs felt really good :) 

I don't see why you should be better at saying things. The smoke only seems precious when you don't have it, when you smoke it's not precious at all was a perfect advice!!

Oh boy my friend.  You can do this.  I know exactly what you're going through and it really sucks.  Just do whatever it takes to get you through it and it does get better.  Sleep, eat, BREATHE (that was my biggest thing), yell, scream, cry, whatever gets you through it.  I'm here rooting you on and don't even think about coming here telling me you relapsed and had one.  You are strong and you can do this.  This is a BIG DEAL and you need to power your way through it.  It is not easy.  Do you really want to start at the beginning?  NOPE .  You don't.  So don't do it.  Tomorrow is another day and we will make it through that too.  So proud of you today!  Hugs.

YAYYYYYYYY, Kalya !!  You made it through, so proud of you.  Those dark days can be rough but I read a great quote.

" There must be darkness for the stars to shine ".  Thought of you.  BIG HUGS, just because.  blush

I'm really grateful to have had your support. 

I actually felt you all walking beside me. 

This inspires me to push harder. I believe no victory is ours alone. 

So we are all winners today. 

Hugs to all from the bottom of my heart.
