Hi Lore, whats up?Yes, i found out that the Junkie inside me is still very well alive. Thank God i have not smoked yet. These days was definitely a slippery slope for me though.i never thought i would face this battle even after 27 days of quit.The test was powerful and intense but not enough to destroy my journey to success.NOPE definitely worked. Otherwise i would have compromised my Junkie and let myself in for a puff. At this point, i understand that i am still an addict. Nothings have changed. May be, the nicotine have left my body but the scars they have made require more time to heal.

The resolution tend to get weak overtime. So i need to fix this. I need some reinforcement.

I would definitely give a try to read Jennifer Government.How are you doing Lore? I hope everything is fine.Might be, the smaller naps you have is a reason for sleeplessness?

Yes, it is a good read! Did you find it? You can get on Kindle but I like real books. 
The junkie inside is alive a long long time Joel. We will always be addicts. It really is that simple. It will get much better with time but it is important to just accept this fact and keep going with the knowledge of our vulnerability. I think this is one thing that makes it so hard. We expect it to go away because we want it to. Well, the saying “you can’t always get what you want” is very true, especially with quitting smoking. We WANT it to just go away! You have come too far to start over for sure.

I’m good. Yes, my sleep is a mess. I have never been one to have a proper schedule for it and that doesn’t help. Truth is, I don’t care about the proper schedule so much! Especially now. I still feel if I need a nap rather than smoke that not smoking is more important so I will nap! joy

Yes, iPhone and iPad. It is easier for me as I’m not so tech savvy! stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes
Movie club sounds fun except I cannot do horror. Did you watch Kim’s Convenience yet?

I am planning to renew my netflix subscription Lore so i can catch up with Kims conveniance.You no need to watch Horror Lore. I catch everything including dramas, sci fi, crime thrillers, documentaries and much more. There will be a hit anyways..

I have an ipad pro 11 but it feels like its not for me. I just use it to watch videos and play games. I thought i could use it as a secondary laptop but it ain't serves good. Recently i bought a gaming laptop. Hp omen rtx 2070.i do all my stuff in that. I am a gadget freak by the way..
