THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE...................

I am having some pretty rough days lately..... and when the stress hits..... "MY EXfriend Addiction" comes a knockin'.

I have cried...bitten a lemon (ok..devored a lemon)  Stuck my head in the freezer.... been 'quite contrary' (Mary, Mary)  gotten people mad at me... pouted.... and then I changed my mind on how to handle my quit.

I got happy.  I am singing my praises ♪♫♪EVERYDAY♪♪♫   (and I am a horrible singer :)  I tell everyone that I am a QUITTER!  IT IS A POSITIVE... the negatives are gone!

YES... I still get cravings.... STRONG ones sometimes..... but I have learned to not dwell on them.. but to let them go!  As soon as I feel one coming... The first thought in my head is "It's NOT an option"    I equate this to losing my Dear Mom.  Seeing her again... was NOT an option.  She is gone.  I had to accept this and move on in my life.  After all....  It IS my life and I have to be the one to make it what I want it to be.  My Choice!

This may sound like I am minimizing the difficulty of a new quit... I AM NOT.  Mine has been an interesting journey also....filled with ups and downs..... whines and pouts...and TRIUMPHS!

THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE.  THIS IS YOUR BEAUTIFUL LIFE.  LIVE IT SMOKEFREE.
