I'm doing well. Good luck at your doctor appointment. Be sure to let us know what they say.
I think he's only smoking 1 or 2 a day and he's not doing it around me. It just makes me feel stronger and empowered that I've had NONE and almost at 4 weeks! I'm proud of myself and you should be proud of yourself too! I still have my junkie moments (especially when I'm ANGRY...like yesterday) but I'M NOT GOING TO DO IT! I'm not going back to Day 1. Let him keep smoking...my quit is ALL MINE!!
That's awesome Cindy. Good for you. My doctor put me on potassium and lasics? for 10 days and wants me to weigh myself once a day and see what happens. So we will see.
so happy for you. I can feel your determination coming through my computer screen. I am happy we have our new home. It sort of feels like all of us built it together with our hard work and determination. We need to make sure nobody falls out of the windows now! I am so grateful to everybody I’ve come to meet in the February group. They were instrumental in keeping me focused and determined at the very beginning. We could not have done this without the support of the MODS and all the long term quitters who checked in on us when we were stumbling around like drunk sailors. So, I will set the table and supply the drinks. I hope somebody in this house is a good cook because we have quite a few cooks in the February home:). Here’s to another smoke free day. I hope that by tomorrow I am able to navigate my way back to our new home. I found Marge this morning and was able to post but had a heck of a time finding my way back tonight.
I see you said you have a hard time finding this thread. I have the link to our group here below. Maybe you could could copy the link into word .
Happy you went to the doctor. Now he knows and you will be monitored! I hope he gave you some positive reinforcement for not smoking!!! You are doing great and every day we don’t smoke we are winning. Keep us posted on how your ankles are doing.
I will try to do that. Still working on the dots and stars :((
Go March Warriors 2018!!
Sorry for being out in left field for the past couple of weeks. I think everything has settled down on my end. Thanks for reaching out during a stressful time. I really appreciate it. Made it thru without smoking and not really thinking a whole lot about it...for that I am thankful.
Glad to hear you are doing well. You should be proud of yourself! Can you believe we are almost to the 4 week mark.
Okay it's midnight and I just woke up from a weird dream. I turn on the tv and its on some movie channel and yet again there is Dennis Quaid smoking. Why is it that no matter the movie everyone is smoking. Is that a conspiracy to make smoking more glamorous?
Idk, maybe we just take more notice of it now. I remember, let’s just say several years ago, when smoking wasn’t as frowned upon as it is today, so there are a lot of the older movies that feature smoking, that is not to say we don’t still see it, but I don’t think it’s quite as common now as it was then. If the movie is really bothering you though maybe you can find something else on to watch that interest you, or try going back to sleep. Either way I hope you have a good rest of your night.
