Thank you girl! Aww a bakery sounds cute!! Okayy I'm down with the cookies. I like to think I make the best chocolate chip with white chocolate chip cookies in the world that's so cool your husband does art! I'm not very artistic at all but I can get down on a paint and sip sesh. Yeah I know that once the icky feeling passes it'll be so much easier to work out!! I already have improved lung function! I know you'll keep doing great in this war. Have a blessed day!

Okay, I feel like I'm "coming down" off some sugar high.  Maybe I am - I haven't eaten very healthy today.  However, I must say I'm not as excited as I was earlier today.  I guess I'm just tired.  I've been shoo'ing away cravings - it constant battle mode today.  Didn't really think about it, but I think I like to smoke in order to procrastinate.  I went to the gas station to get a diet coke and I bought $20 worth of snacks!  LOL!  Well, at least I didn't smoke.  Se la vie!  Bout to eat another Reese's Cup and keep it movin'.  stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

Doing ok today.  Had some strong cravings on the way to work - they hit hard, but didn't last long.  Mostly when drivers were being stupid on the road.  I prayed and meditated this morning - that helped.  I had some WEIRD dreams last night.  Ex-boyfriend, some scene that was a mixture of Bird Box, a kung fu movie, pit bulls, and me running away from something - trying to hide and protect my family.  So strange.  Anyways..................

Glad to be free today.  Going to try to get some more work done today than yesterday - slowly building up my tolerance to the real world again.  I do hope this is my last quit - I can't go thru this again - getting too old to play the game with the nicodemon anymore.

Saving this...

Tell yourself four things: (1) Smoking is no longer an option regardless of what life throws your way; (2) I am worthy of freedom from this addiction; (3) I can. I will. End of story; and (4) I am stronger than this challenge and this challenge is making me stronger.

Just realized a few things...

  1. I have an overwhelming desire to have like 5 years quit today.  Like, I feel good about my quit today, do I have 5 years yet?  Although, I know this is impossible and I just have to do the journey like everyone else - one day at a time.
  2. My sweet tooth is down today - that is excellent.  I may have Reese's Cupped myself out. 
  3. I'm drinking more water - this helps a lot (iced water, through a straw)
  4. I'm working out more - this helps a lot too.

I love reading your journal, Alex.  Pretty much like I could be writing it.  One minute good, next minute iffy and the next, who knows?  BUT you are staying strong and telling Nic to kiss off.  Love it !  Keep kicking butts.

My sweet tooth died a little bit too haha I've been eating watermelon instead. I just think about how I used to go through a lot of perfume and lotion to cover up the smell and now I dont have to do that anymore. I don't want to lose this freedom I really love it. One day at a time!
