I have to admit that it does look beautiful but I'd much prefer it was Dec 10th and not April 10th oh well at least we've got a lot less than what was predicted so far anyway and since it's Good Friday Mark is home so it'll be a good movie day but no matter the Weather or anything that's happening in our lives we will remain Smokefree because we don't smoke anymore let's CELEBRATE Freedom from the clutches of the dreaded nicotine poison whether you're on day one or day TEN or one hundred or one thousand or two thousand or whatever each and every Day WON is worth CELEBRATING because we've taken our lives back and that's worth CELEBRATING BUT we must always remain Vigilant and nurture and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE.....

If you want to continue living a Life of Freedom then you must choose to stick with N.O.P.E - Not One Puff Ever ~ N.M.W  - No Matter What because it works when applied on a daily basis it's the only way to remain Smokefree with the right Mindset we can do just about anything we put our minds to and quitting smoking is the gift of LIFE which I consider the one gift that will keep on giving day after day week after week month after month and Lord willing year after year and it starts with a choice.......

This pin below may look like Christmas BUT the words touch me and since we're under a snowfall warning overnight tonight with possibly 14 inches or more of wet heavy snow coming through it's going to look like Christmas BUT it's not going to stay so hey there'll be no smoking because Relapsing isn't even a blimp on my Radar because I don't do that anymore and neither do any of you! N.O.P.E IS KEY to remaining Smokefree .....

George our buddy our pal our friend our Hump Day Camel wants to wish each of you reading this a Stressfree hasslefree BUT most importantly a Smokefree Day we both want all of us here at Ex to be EXtra vigilant especially during these EXtra stressful times as long as we choose to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W then there's absolutely no way any of will FAIL......

we're on river watch right now here's a picture from yesterday that a friend had posted just a 40 minute drive up river from me on the Saint John river hopefully it'll stast moving today....

We've got quite a storm coming through tomorrow night into Friday morning rain ice pellets freezing rain then snow ugh 8 to 12 inches of the white crap is predicted I'm guessing you'll be getting roughly the same too Sootie I'm calling it the robins storm since I finally saw a couple yesterday  anyway hopefully this'll be the last big one..... We can and will get through whatever comes our way and we'll get through it living LIFE on LIFE'S Terms without the crutch of cigarettes....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How about a smile or two?

 

 

We have to take as many deep breaths as we need to and continue to move forward in our precious quits because going back to to that horrid DAY ONE or those early days and weeks of quitting smoking just isn't happening NOT anymore because WE DON'T DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE!!! N.O.P.E N.M.W......

If you're reading this and are on the fence about quitting smoking or maybe you're on Day ONE or day TEN or day 30 or 50 or 100 or 365 or 3,065 or whatever it doesn't matter as long as you quit and stay quit because  right now we're all stressed globally LIFE happens whether we smoke or not BUT LIFE is one hell of a lot more stressful during this pandemic BUT we can can and must make the choice to quit and stay quit because this horrid Coronavirus can be fatal by affecting the lungs and breathing is essential to living!!! Our lives are counting on us to nurture and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE.........

Here's something on the lighter side..........

Please come here and blog HELP if you're struggling with remaining quit these are really stressful times and each day is getting more scary BUT we can and must stick with our precious quits because at least we do have control in remaining Smokefree during these unprecedented times I'm so glad that we are here for each other .....

As difficult as quitting smoking is in those early days and weeks it's also absolutely Doable it's not easy by any stretch of the imagination BUT anything in this life worth having takes time and effort and quitting smoking must be at the top of the list of things to do for your health BUT especially your LIFE which literally depends on you to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W because it works when applied on a daily basis. I remember only too well how horrendous the cravings and moodswings were in my early weeks geesh there were times I'd be laughing one moment and the next I'd be blatting like a baby or I'd feel like screaming and I probably did then I'd feel like tearing my hair out or ripping someone's face off anyone's face it really didn't matter who's face BUT thankfully I knew that as much as I felt like throwing my hands up in the air and jumping in my car to buy a carton of cigarettes instead of just a pack I knew that I'd make it through because of all of the reading that was suggested to me right here on this site anyway to make this a little shorter please just hang on tight to the best gift that you'll ever give yourself which is the gift of LIFE!!!!!

This pin below is eeeeeeeeeewie!!!! 

Another icky pin below ewwwwwwwww!!!!!

Hummmm here's an idea LOL!!!!

Whether we're on Day ONE or day TEN or ONE hundred ONE thousand or TWO thousand it really doesn't matter as long as we choose to stick with our precious QUITS we're living in some scary times right now BUT relapsing isn't the answer whatsoever as difficult as things are we can and must hang on tight to the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE! Our health and most likely our lives literally depends on us to quit and stay quit.....

Our buddy our pal our friend our Hump Day Camel George wants to wish each of you reading this a Stressfree hasslefree BUT most importantly a Smokefree Day hummm I'm finding that George is getting a little brazen now that we're feeling some Spring temps OldBones-Larry with the change of seasons he's acting up! Could you try to rein him in Larry I'd much appreciate it I know with the change of seasons we've all got to be EXtra vigilant so old patterns and memories doesn't raise it's ugly head thinking hummm just one would be okay because that's a downright LIE we must never ever ever allow ourselves to become lazy and complacent and lose the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE even with these unprecedented Times we must choose to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W. because our family our health but especially our lives literally depends on us to quit and stay quit.....

                                                             Are there any bored hair stylists here?

Here's a great way to social distance BUT having a hatchback would be an asset for sure....

I posted this pin below on Sootie's blog BUT I think it's worth a repost.....

If you're new in your quit or you're struggling with remaining quit please know that you can and will get through whatever comes your way and you will get through it Smokefree deep breaths and believe in yourself and with commitment and perseverance you will make it  it won't be easy BUT you will persevere and you will be so glad that you stuck with your precious quit journey......

I knew that it was supposed to start snowing last night but waking up this morning and looking out the window first thing this morning I had to smile at how beautiful everything looks we're supposed to get ice pellets freezing rain and rain throughout the day which will wash alot of this away be safe everyone during this Stressful time and hang on tight to the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the GIFT OF LIFE! Relapsing isn't an option not when breathing is essential to living we must be EXtra vigilant especiall during this pandemic I'm a recovering alcoholic with over 9 years of Sobriety and I'll have 6 years of being Smokefree in July BUT I woke up around 3 o'clock with a drink in one and a smoke in the other WHEW that's a wake up call not to become complacent! We're living in some scary times BUT we must continue to move forward stacking up those precious Days Of Freedom so each evening we can look ourselves in the mirror and say YAY for another Day WON....

How about a little light humor! 

Wow we're definitely in some terrifying times BUT we can and must stick with our precious quits because thankfully we do have complete control over whether we smoke or not so let's continue to move forward stacking up those precious Days Of Freedom so each evening we can look ourselves in the mirror and say YAY for another Day WON! Relapsing isn't an option anymore....committment and perservence along with lots of deep breaths and knowing that we're all here for each other to help each other through these stressful times with our precious quits in tact we can and will remain Smokefree N.M.W.....Believe it.....

We must choose to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W because Life is going to keep on happening whether we relapse or NOT and choosing Not to relapse is the GIFT OF LIFE I'm stressed out and I bet many of you are over this horrifying Coronavirus as much as I'd like to knock some heads together of people that still aren't self isolating I can't BUT I can and am self isolating myself, all of the borders are now closed coming into NB except for the truckers and medical plus essential workers anyway my sons fiancee works at Wal-Mart she served a couple on Wednesday and once the sale was done the wife smiled and said they just came back from Florida and it was good to be home my sons fiancee was stunned and couldn't believe it people are supposed to go directly home and not shop! Anyway It's the law now you can be fined up to $10.000 and or time in jail if you don't comply I'm so sorry that's enough rambling whew deep breaths and let's continue stacking up our precious DOF so each evening we can say YAY for another Day WON...... I need some humor.....

How about pulling up a virtual chair and enjoy a virtual coffee and some breakfast and just breathe.

How about a smile or even a chuckle maybe a little humor will does us good.
