I try to wake up with a positive attitude some days are easier than others but I am the type of person that tries to look at the good even in a bad situation because if I look hard enough I usually find something good in the bad, when I was quitting smoking after 40 yrs it  was beyond a shadow of a doubt the hardest thing that I have ever done but I knew even when I was going through some horrendous cravings that they were going to pass that it was going to get easier and believe me when I say there was times that I wanted to throw my hands up in the air and head straight to the grocery store and buy a carton of cigarettes instead of just a pk but I didn't because no matter how rotton a day I was having with the cravings  I read enough here including Dales page on NML that I was prepared to handle whatever came my way. I am not saying it was easy it most certainly wasn't, there was days that if you looked at me, I would've ripped off your face or I might have started blatting like a baby,I had so many emotions that I didn't know what to do with but I also knew from all of my reading that I would come out the other side smiling and also I promised myself the night before I quit smoking that I would never pick up another cigarette as long asI live and I don't break promises to anyone including myself so yay here I am with 670 splendiferous DOF and still counting,if I can do it anybody can so please keep moving forward and stacking up those precious smoke free days because each evening when you're getting ready for bed you can hold your head up high and smile because you have made it through another day WON!!!!!!!
