The last two weeks have brought some major life changes to my little world. It has been an extremely painful time for my family and there have been tears....a lot of tears.
Life changing events happen to most everyone. It hurts, it's unfair, but that's part of life. I'll pull through. I'm here not to complain or to gain sympathy....I'm here to say that not once did I think of smoking my way through this. Not once!!
And that can only mean one thing. Unfortunately, I think I have coping skills! Yep, I think I am emotionally well balanced, healthy, and able to get through life's challenges without a crutch.
Not to say it was pleasant. It wasn't and it still isn't. I've isolated myself quite a bit simply to get through my day without crying. But I will get through my day and I will heal and life will go on.....all without smoking.
I need to start catching up with things here. Bee Jay, I hope all's well! Everyone else, too. But it will take time and I need to continue to be easy on myself for awhile.
I guess I can do this, huh? And if I can do it, so can you =)
