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.
