More positive now!

Posted by Christine13 Jan 26, 2016

Hello, I am working on day 8 of freedom today.  Last week was tough but you all pulled me through it.

Yesterday and today have been a lot better.  Talking with my councillor helps too.  I finally feel like I have a great chance at succeeding.  Before this I've always sabotaged my quits, but not any more!  I am giving myself permission to finally put this behind me one day at a time!  I am starting to believe in the new me.

It takes practice every day to learn new techniques and tools not to return to smoking.  I am getting there.

I realize that patience with myself is key.  I look forward to being smoke free for good this time.  No going back.

Thanks everyone for all your support.


I've been fighting with myself all day yesterday and today to stay quit.  I have no stress the last couple of days so that's not it.  Thank goodness for that!  All day long I've fought with myself not to walk and buy cigs.  I know it will get better and then I will be so glad I didn't go.  I really want to continue to be free of the cigs.  It's just hard on me right now.  Nothing worthwhile was ever easy I guess.  I want this to be the last time I ever go through this and to make it through to the other side.  You all inspire me so much with your awesome quits.  I have delayed and delayed going to the store.  I will focus on making it through today.  I will deal with tomorrow - tomorrow.  Thanks for letting me vent. 


A New Approach

Posted by Christine13 Jan 15, 2016

Hello - I just wanted to say I started therapy with a councilor on Wednesday of this week.  She is very helpful.  I have figured out a few things to do for comfort for myself when I'm stressed instead of smoking. Up until now I have kept failing at this.  I've done a ton of reading from the sites suggested and will do more.  Thanks so much to all of you for your support.  I will make time in my day to come here and reply to blogs and read other's pages.  I always try to bite off more than I can chew at one time, like dieting at the same time as quitting.  It doesn't work that way for me.  One thing at a time for me.........I can loose the weight later.  I will try and stay as positive as I can!  Thanks so much everyone!
