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!

Ok checking in for today.  Today was rough y’all.  I made it, but my anger was off the chain.  My MIL gave my 4 yo prunes today - so she pooped her pants three times.  My 5 mo would NOT calm down until about 20 mins ago.  I did NOT get to take a nap today bc neither one of them took an afternoon nap.  Ahhhh!!!!  

I just journaled, drank some tea, ate four Reese’s cups, and lit a candle.

There is NO WAY a sickarette would make any of this better.

I’m anxious about going to work tomorrow because my boss has been out for a week and I barely got any work done.  I haven’t been able to concentrate as well with cessation going on.  

I’m just full of self pity and anger.  Oh...wait a minute.  I recognize this behavior/feelings.  It’s a trap.

Ok quick, gratitude.

I’m grateful I got to do a craft with my daughter today - we made a love rainbow for God.  I am grateful my infant is no longer getting nicotine while I nurse her.  I am grateful I have another chance to quit.  I’m grateful my lungs are working.  I’m grateful for my relationship with God.  I am grateful for this forum.  I’m grateful for all my quit buddies.  I’m grateful I have two wonderful jobs.  I’m grateful for clean water and I can afford to feed my children.  I’m grateful for my wonderful husband who puts up with all my BS.  I’m grateful for my Zen as F*ck journal.  I’m grateful for honey citron and ginger tea.  I’m grateful for my new jasmine & patchouli candle.  I’m grateful my baby is sleeping.  I’m grateful I’m about to go to sleep smoke free.  Another drop in the bucket folks!  Goodnight !

 OK I just took an early lunch break because I am dying. The self-pity thoughts, the exhaustion, the constant coughing...I’m so over it.
