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.
ColoradoMike, Rassister, Cindi, Claire, and Kusho50,
I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d like to, but I’m so glad to be a part of this group and so happy we’re here. I hope some of the others who were with us join us here soon. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to everyone.
Marge, Debbie Steinman, SueP, and ModSue,
I haven’t been able to post on here since the post about feeling antsy/nervous. I did however see your responses. I’m sorry my own response has taken so long. Thank you though for the congratulations at 3 weeks, the useful information you provided me and the helpful tips. I took it all to heart. I still have my moments, no denying that, but I’m handling them a bit better than before. Thank you all so much for your help, encouragement and for the information. It’s almost 1 month, goodness. Anyway, it was and continues to be a big help. Thanks again. :)
I am so glad you are hanging in there. This is a tough process for sure. Take it one day at t time and get to bed smoke free.
I love your profile picture. It is a reminder of how you will soar free once from this terrible addiction. You can do this.
I love that picture of the side mirror you posted and I’m still smiling from reading it. I hadn’t thought of my picture that way, but what you said puts it in a whole new light. I like that idea too. Thank you! I have to admit, I used so many of your ideas and suggestions to get here. I hope you don’t mind but, I think I’m going to copy that picture to remind myself of what it says. Have a great day.
You are welcome to anything I post:)) I had that picture and one other pinned to the wall that leads my basement for the whole first year. That way I had to look at them every day. I still keep the one below on that wall because it helps me to sort thing things out and not be double-minded,
