Hey everyone sorry I have been mia for awhile. I was so sick! I’m still battling a cough with some congestion but I’m way better then before. I hope everyone is doing good and holding onto their quit!!! I will write more later! Love and hugs
Hey everyone. Sorry I have been MIA. I’m a hot mess over here. I spent all day yesterday crying in horrible pain with a severe sinus infection, I am still coughing which kills me because my head hurts so bad. I wish these antibiotics would work already. This is my second round too. I don’t mean to come in here and complain but I can’t help it. My doctor said to let the meds run their course so i am. I hope everyone else is in good health and had a decent nights sleep. I will try to pop in later.
As I sit here and look back on all the years I was a smoker, it's hard to remember sometimes. I look at myself in pictures and cannot believe I was a smoker for so many years. The day I quit was one of the best days in my life. I could not have given myself a better gift then the gift of a longer life. I know quitting isn't easy. I will never sugar coat it for anyone. I always want to be honest with anyone who is quitting. I will tell you this, every single craving you fight off, every single irritated and frustrated moment you have will be worth it. Because one day you will be the one sitting back looking at pictures almost 4 years down the road and looking at yourself and thinking how impossible it was that you were once a smoker. Keep your head held high!! You have this!!! You WILL beat the nicobeast !!! I am ALWAYS here for ANYONE needing a friend!!!
Good Morning ☀️I am off to the doctor at 10am eastern time. I hope he gives me a stronger antibiotic. I hope everyone had a decent nights sleeps. How is everyone doing with their quit? Remember to always have faith I yourself ok! Be your own cheerleader and always remember we are all here supporting and cheering you on too!! Have a great day and remember N.O.P.E
I feel like crud. I started to develop a fever overnight and it’s been bouncing all day. I’m on antibiotics and it’s just not helping. I think I have to call my doctor tomorrow. I know a fever can be normal when you have bronchitis but I would feel better talking with my doctor. So how is everyone else doing?? I hope everyone has had a good day so far. Love and hugs Lisa
It’s rainy here this morning. It’s also gloomy. But I Love days like this sometimes. The rain washes away all the muck from the roads and sidewalks and helps all the plants and trees and flowers grow. The gloom is fine too. Gloomy days help us to appreciate the sunny days. I hope everyone is having a good day!!!
Hi everyone!!! I hope everyone has had a decent day so far. I have just been relaxing up till now. My hubby and I will be heading out soon to go shopping for groceries. If anyone needs me I’m here off and on. Love and hugs Lisa
I wanted to pop in and see how everyone was doing tonight. I hope you all had a great day. I think I’m going to turn in early tonight. It has been a long day. Keep your heads up and your eye on the prize, your quit! Love and Hugs everyone!
Good morning to all my fellow exers! I hope you all were able to sleep last night. I slept off and on due to this horrible cough and now headache. I’m calling my doctor here in a few minutes. I just wanted to say that if you woke up feeling frustrated or feeling like you can’t do this, your wrong. You CAN do this! You made it to today and if today is your first quit day, You got this!!! We are all here because we took it one day at a time or even one moment at a time. That’s right, one moment. Because at times that’s how far I could go. We are all here for you!!! You are never alone!!
I hope you all have a good day, be gentle to yourselves.
As i lay here about to fall asleep, I wanted to pop I and say Congratulations to all of us on another day of being smoke free!! Whether it’s day 1,2 or day 522!!! Every day is a commitment to your health! Hold on to your quit, it is the most precious gift you could ever give yourselves!! Good night everyone!!!
Hey all Im just checking in and hoping everyone has had a good day so far. I’m still feeling yucky. So I’m off to lay down and watch some House Hunters International. If anyone needs me, I’m here and will check my messages off and on. Love and Hugs
Good morning! I hope everyone was able to sleep well or at least sleep for a bit if your having troubles. Remember to tell yourself each day as you wake that today is going to be a good day, No matter what! Remember to claim your quit each day! You are worth it!!! And if you feel like you just can’t, get in here and talk to someone! That’s what we are all here for. To help. Love and hugs!
It’s going to be a long night here. My daughter was able to be seen today for her congested cough but they weren’t able to fit me in. So I will most likely be up all night, coughing! But it is what it is.
Anyone have any helpful tips on calming a cough? I hope everyone is healthy and happy tonight!
It has been a long time since I last wrote a blog post. I sure hope everyone is doing great!!! There are times when I look in the mirror and still cannot believe that I did it! That I overcame my addiction to cigarettes. I am truly blessed to have found this website back when I started my journey to be smoke free. Everyone here was a huge factor in helping me and cheering me on. I really hope I can be of some help to someone who needs a friend. I hope everyone has a beautiful day today. I’m off to a doctors appointment for my daughter and I. We both have differing degrees of a cough. Love and hugs to all!!!
