Congratulations as you continue your path to permanent freedom!

Yeah - I especially like the parts: 

"She said to visualize the cravings rolling over me in waves and to understand that these cravings are an indication of my body re-adjusting and healing itself. This was a true light bulb moment for me and directly led to my salvation."

"I found that I started to embrace the challenge of the process of recovery from nicotine addiction. The real fun began when I made a game of it. I analyzed my triggers and devised strategies to deal with them. The joy of seeing my strategies work was powerful reinforcement for me and lifted my self-esteem tremendously."

You can change your experience by changing your mind - it takes less than a second.

Hi Joel,

Maybe easier to write here and then things don’t get lost with the ones you don’t know. So you are 19 days now? That’s fantastic!

Good morning Joel! 
Gald you are feeling happy! I’m feeling pretty good but could have slept more. It is a rainy day here now and that always makes me want to nap. I’m glad I don’t smoke now and am constantly thinking about the next one in the rain.

Yes Lore, i am very glad you are enjoying the freedom from the damn addiction.Here, its the fall and its the most beautiful month of the year. I have classes online and we are actually 4 members doing an integration project in computer networks and security.we might have some drinks in the evening but i am pretty sure i wont smoke again. I dont want those miserable days again. And you like to take small naps? Me too. Its very peaceful.

Yes, naps are the best. I am working this weekend so naps. Took a lot early in my quit and it really helped. Be careful with the drinks. It seems to be the downfall for a lot of folks. I don’t drink really so that is not a connection that was hard for me.

Have a nice day tomorrow!

I’m feeling tired after a long work day. Healthy food is good when not smoking. I pretty much stopped eating sugar when I quit, but didn’t eat too much even when I smoked. I’ve always been a healthy eater, thank goodness. I cook out of necessity and rarely enjoyment. It is a chore I don’t care for. So for me, it is easy to make some eggs with vegetables and maybe some cheese. Tuna sandwich is a favorite of mine too. I like simple food that is to prepare without a lot of added stuff and eat a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit and love dairy products too. Ice cream is considered healthy to me for the calcium! Lol!

Wow.. Thats great.Lore you are a perfect example for having a healthy life. Eggs with vegetables with cheese seem delicious. Can you explain the detailed process of making them. I really dont know cooking.So i will start with easier ones. I do know how to make a cup of coffee and make a bullseye.

I hope you have a great day. By the way its my 21 st day of quitting. Have i achieved any dots or stars? I dont have a paid membership here. I cant post photos or gifs. So i want you to give me dots or stars if i have achieved that will be a motivation for me in this journey.
