I'm posting here, but I am unsure of this quit. My chest hurts and I am coughing a lot, but I still don't WANT to quit, but I know I should quit. To be quite honest, I'm in a heap of self-pity that seems to be never ending. I feel better for a bit and then go back to a sad spot. I've talked to my doc. Perhaps postpartum. We'll see how things go...just posting for today. Haven't smoked in several hours, but just unsure of how I'll feel tomorrow morning. Oh well, I know its all part of the journey. xo

Hi Alex,  how are you feeling today?

Hey Youdi, I'm feeling encouraged today.  So far, I have not smoked a cigarette.  I read some of the article that ModAndrea sent and then dove a little deeper into the quit smoking toolbox.  I know that I don't want to smoke.  I was buying into the junkie thinking.  What a mess.  I allowed that resentment towards my aunt to throw me way off.  Now I feel like I'm back on solid ground.  I want to keep this quit.  I'm a little over 24 hrs in.  We'll see.  I know I just have this moment, but I'll take it.  I need to be here for my baby girl.  I want to help her go prom dress shopping and be there for her wedding and hopefully her children.  Thank you so much for checking on me.  I really appreciate your support.  xo

Great going Alex thumbsup,  think of keeping yourself away from smoking just for one day at a time, play with baby, sleep early , eat candies, watch movies, do anything to keep yourself away from having a puff...

Yay!  I just ate some multi grain chips.  They were crunchy and delicious.  :)

Nice :) .... how are you doing today??

So today, I smoked.  Ugh.  I couldn't resist the temptation.  There were several people outside of the place I went this morning.  And the excuse is "at least it isn't 'x' you know".  Will renew my quit tomorrow.  Dang this addiction is strong.  

I will say this though.  I didn't go buy a pack.  So I am happy about that.  :D
