The ground was covered in white first thing this morning BUT now it's raining so it's pretty much gone for now at least, I found out this morning that the Covid case is in my 11 year old grandson Masons class which is grade 6 ugh so 2 weeks of self isolation for him and all of his class I guess! We're in a rural area here so it didn't take too long to find out who the student is and that her parents also have Covid BUT  I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that relapsing just isn't an option not anymore I've got 2,324 Smokefree days and I'm going to continue stacking them up besides we all know that breathing is essential to living and if we can't breathe then it's lights out and I'm hoping to be around for awhile with the best quality of LIFE possible.......I want all of us to be around for as long as possible to enjoy the little things in LIFE that's actually the the big things in LIFE and as long as we choose to stick with N.O.P.E ~Not One Puff Ever  and vigilance N.M.W ~ No Matter What then we'll continue to reap the benefits of a Smokefree Life!!!!!

I just received a phone call from Public Health because I'm on my daughter's contact list for the school they couldn't reach Mandy so public health called me to get Mandy to call them because her son Mason my 11 year old grandson was in contact with someone with Covid from his school my heart was racing when the health nurse told me, he's got to self isolate I finally got a hold of Mandy and told her to call the health nurse so she find out more details. I'm so sorry that I'm rambling!!!! If I was still smoking I'd be chainsmoking right now and it wouldn't change a blessed thing EXcept I'd probably have a worse headache than I do already..... This picture was taken on Halloween he was being silly.

 

Once we make up our minds and our day ONE of our quit arrives and we make through DAY WON then we must choose to stick with N.O.P.E ~ Not One Puff Ever and Vigilance ~ N.M.W ~ No Matter What ~ we must trust and believe in ourselves because there's so much more in our lives than the damned Cancer Sticks ~ we can and will make it through to that good place BUT after decades of smoking it's bound to take time to relearn life without the smokes BUT it's worth every bit of the cravings and moodswings and lack of sleep to be Free......Oops I better get moving and punch the bread down I've got a dozen loaves to put in the pans hopefully I'll have enough dough for a pan of rolls too! It's wonderful not having to stop every 15 minutes for a yucky break (smoke break) because I don't do that anymore and neither do you right!!!!! LIFE really is Grand without a Cigarette in Hand YAY for Smokefree living and YAY for each and every Day WON! ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

looking back to my day WON and those early days and weeks of quitting smoking which at times the cravings and moodswings were almost unbearable notice I said almost Even with deep breaths I still could've tore my hair out or ripped someone's face off anyone's face it really didn't matter whose face BUT thankfully from all of the reading that I did right here on this site I knew with commitment and perseverance I would make it through and so will you BUT it does take time to relearn life without the crutch of cigarettes...Our quits are worth so much more than the damned Cancer Sticks......

it was 11°F at 6 am brrr BUT it's supposed to warm up overnight and possibly reach 50 degrees tomorrow we've all been having the roller coaster weather from one Extreme to the other kinda like the early stages of our quits with the moodswings and so on BUT eventually that gets much much better with time under our belts hummm with both we can get frustrated and scream or go with the flow because N.M.W ~ No Matter What ~ smoking just isn't an option anymore.....I'm going to get busy making a homemade chicken soup and a pan of biscuits or maybe dumplings or maybe both BUT whatever I decide relapsing won't be part of the equation because smoking  isn't the answer to anything......

On the lighter side

Our lives literally depends on us to quit smoking and to stick with it ~ N.M.W ~ No Matter What ~ Breathing is essential to living because if we can't breathe then it's lights out! 

Oops our buddy our pal our friend our Hump day camel George is giving me the evil eye because I forgot to mention him sorry about that George life is hectic at times BUT relapsing isn't the answer EVER! George wants to wish each of you reading this a Stressfree hasslefree BUT most importantly a Smokefree Day because our QUITS is a MUST so we can be around to enjoy the little things in LIFE that's actually the big things in LIFE.....

Once we've wised up and quit smoking then we've got to leave the smokes in the past where they belong because we don't do that anymore our lives should be so much better without the disgusting yuckies (cigarettes)......

Sticking with ~ N.O.P.E ~ Not One Puff Ever and vigilance N.M.W ~ No Matter What is vital to our quality of life because breathing is essential to living! Vigilance is key to remaining Smokefree!!!!

On the lighter side on this Monday morning!

In order to to live LIFE on LIFE'S Terms without the crutch of cigarettes we must choose to stick with our precious quits 

 it's our choice whether we screw it up or continue living a Smokefree Life! ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Finding this awesome community was Exactly what I needed to succeed in quitting smoking looking back I don't believe that I had the confidence in myself BUT wowser after reading everything I could find right here on this site it really strengthened my resolve to succeed, it certainly wasn't easy BUT finding out that I have copd frightened me into realizing that I wasn't invincible and I didn't want to be sitting in a Drs office and be told to go home and get my affairs in order that there's nothing that can be done all because I waited to long to quit smoking! As difficult as it is, it's also very Doable PLUS our lives are worth so much more than the damned Cancer Sticks!!!!! ~ N.O.P.E ~ Not One Puff Ever ~ N.M.W ~ No Matter What ~ works ~ Vigilance is key to remaining Smokefree and besides relapsing isn't an option anymore RIGHT!!!!

Keeping our minds as well as our hands occupied in the early stages of our quits really helps to keep the cravings at bay BUT it also helps in pretty much all aspects of our lives especially during these EXtra stressful times with the Covid 19 pandemic BUT no matter what is happening we can and MUST stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance because it's absolutely Doable and it's vital to our quality of life because breathing is essential to living and if we can't breathe nothing else matters! 

Friday the 13th is just another day BUT it's another Day to be WON.....

2020 is one Hell of a year BUT thankfully with commitment and perseverance we'll get through it just like we do with our precious QUITS one day at a time or hour minute or even a second at a time.......

The longer we're quit the easier it gets BUT we MUST stick with N.O.P.E ~ Not One Puff Ever and Vigilance N.M.W ~ No Matter What ~ because it works when applied on a daily basis PLUS it's absolutely worth it to be Free......
