Happy 4th, yeah i know. I had a stressful call this morning, a property i manage, a guy got his van broken into and all his tools stolen, im thinking thats it im going to the convenience store to buy a pack, cause im used to dealing w everything w a cig. I did not, but it did not go well when i got there, yelling etc. I have since turned my phone off for today, im gonna stick to original plan and bike ride to lake. 

I know its hard in the evening for me as well, but am dealing w it with doing other things instead, a walk around the neighborhood, take in the nice flower smells in the morning..

Hopping  on to this quit train with ya'll for the umpteenth time.    I chose July 4th because it's a date I will remember and If I reach 1 year-god willing- there will be fireworks!!  so here I go again.  Everyone says the first three days are the worst but for me it's day 4.  I see some old friends here so I am not alone. 

 Good luck everyone.   Here we go.

Hi there, Deanne,

I'm glad you came back, sweetie. You know that we will always have your back no matter how many times you might slip. The most important thing is that you're here purple_heart

See you on the NOPE page,

Have a great smoke free day,

Kitty cat

Welcome back. Yes I remember you posting in the past. I am on day 3, i biked yesterday to our beautiful lake here in Chicago, they have done such an excellent job keeping our lakefront as a park space.. miles and miles of it, and i a world that has so many rules, you can go swimming at many spots here without lifeguards which is awesome, at your own risk. Water was awesome. I would say 99.9 % of the people on the lake were not smoking, at least they weren't smoking cigarettes, lol. Its hard to quit and have a ton of stress on top of it in the beginning, I had slipped back in April and have tried quitting like 20 times since then. I believe its better on the no smoking side.

I think maybe one of the big reasons for my slip was not rewarding myself for being quit after January, up until then i was buying myself something, and then i stopped. So that may be a big reason., and junkie thinking

Hi Overdoz,

Had a social day today, went and visited my Dad and then went out to my step mothers family for lunch, quite pleasant, no thoughts of smoking.

Kind regards


Hi Turtles,

On Day 5 early days yet, do you drink water? I have been drinking quite a bit, it does take away the smoking urge I find, Hows the holiday, are you walking on the beach?

Kind regards


I couldn't imagine smoking weed, cigarettes are bad enough and I'm not going there, 

Breathing deep


Welcome aboard Deanne

Kind regards
