Description

 

I was born in 1973, so depending on when you read this, my age could be different. I started smoking when I was 11yrs old (which is like 19 where i am from) I smoked until July 10th 2010- I quit because I wanted freedom. I want to say that I cared about my health but that is not honest. I wanted freedom from smoking!! I was chained to cigarettes and could not enjoy anything without the worry of  "can I smoke there"  I quit using nicorette this time. This quit is my 1000000 quit, and my last. Never quit quitting!!!

Accepting Love

Posted by comfortablynumb313 Mar 10, 2011

Many of us have worked too hard to make relationships work; sometimes those relationships didn't have a chance because the other person was unavailable or refused to participate.

To compensate for the other person's unavailability, we worked too hard. We may have done all or most of the work. Doing all the work in a relationship is not loving, giving, or caring. It is self-defeating and relationship defeating. It creates the illusion of a relationship when in fact there may be no relationship. It enables the other person to be irresponsible for his or her share. Because that does not meet our needs, we ultimately feel victimized.

We can learn to participate a reasonable amount, and then let the relationship find its own life. Are we doing all the calling? Are we doing all the initiating? Are we doing all the giving? Are we the one talking about feelings and striving for intimacy?

Are we doing all the waiting, the hoping, and the work?

We can let go. If the relationship is meant to be, it will be, and it will become what it is meant to be. We do not help that process by trying to control it. We do not help ourselves, the other person, or the relationship by trying to force it or by doing all the work.

Let it be. Wait and see. Stop worrying about making it happen. See what happens and strive to understand if that is what you want.

Today, I will stop doing all the work in my relationships. I will give myself and the other person the gift of requiring both people to participate. I do not have to do all the work; I need only do my share.

Peace, Lisa

GREED!

Posted by comfortablynumb313 Mar 8, 2011

In my recovery I must still deal with that compulsive side of my nature
that always wants more.

I forget to be grateful for what I have. I ruin relationships because I
have a code of behavior that I expect from others but not myself! I miss
the fun of the moment because I am preoccupied with what I am
missing elsewhere. I miss the comfort of my own home as I fantasize
about country mansions owned by millionaires. Always I want more ---
and yet in my own experience more has always been less.

Today I work hard on a spiritual program of gratitude. I have a
checklist of things I need to be grateful for; I work on my disease of
greed by talking about it.

Thank You for that part of me that must remain "poor".

Peace, Lisa

The local council could not afford a speed camera, so they put up a sign saying:
Slow down Old People's Home.  - It had no effect.
At the next meeting the decided to play on the paternal instincts and put up a sign:
Danger - Children at Play.  - No discernable reduction in traffic speed.
Then the chairman had a brain-wave and suggested they try a sign with:
Nudist Colony.  - As a result of the Nudist Colony notice, white vans and lorries crawl thought the village.

Peace, Lisa 238 days smoke free!!!
