Congratulations to all ‘September Ash-Kickers 2018’ on your new quit buddy group name and your permanent new home. 

You’ve made it through to October and will be approaching your first full month smoke free. What a awesome achievement! 

If I may leave a bit of advice.. As you move forward continue to take it day by day. Looking to far ahead can cause added stress and undue anxiety. Stay in the moment. Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute if necessary. Stay strong and stay close. 

Best wishes. 

Denim

Hey Nancy

I am so very sorry to hear what you have been, and still are, going through.  You have really done amazingly well to stay smoke-free so be very proud of yourself.

I am copying this post over to one of my Quit Buddies, Triff, as she has also been going through a similar situation to you but is now coming out the other side.  She may be able to give you some support and I always think it is good to be able to speak to someone with whom we can identify when we are in stressful situations.  She, actually, lives in New Zealand so may not reply until tomorrow.

Here's an article on coping with stress in our quits too:

Never forget that we are all here for you.  The forum is a great place to come to let off steam.  No-one here judges or tires of anyone who wants to rant.  Although our problems are often different, we do all understand how each other feels.

So, I do hope that the court hearing goes well and that you can come to a decision about what action to take now.  I can understand how hard that decision must be but I hope that you do whatever is the very best for you.  You deserve it.

Let us know how things go.

Congratulations on Two Weeks Smoke-free and also for getting through another weekend.  You're right - that is a huge achievement.

Glad that you found our new home and hope to see you around here posting a lot.

Just keep going - it will get better and better - you can do this.

Hi ModSue,

Thank you for your kind words - they are appreciated! 

One hour at a time turns into a day. Baby steps is how I am approaching my life and smoking cessation. I am very proud of what I have done and when those urges hit, I say NOPE - I am not starting over! 

As I said before, I can't change the past, but I am in full control of the future! Well as least as far as smoking/ not smoking goes. 

Nancy
