Alexandra's Quit Story   Quit Stories and Journals

Started 9/23/15 by alEXsmoker (afrancis333); 47893 views.

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

Ok - I'm going to do it. blush
