I woke up and looked at the clock at 6 o'clock and thought no way not yet so I rolled over and eventually fell back asleep until almost 8 . I realize how lucky I am in a way that I'm not working so I can sleep in but in another way if my body parts didn't start falling apart in my mid 40's then I could still be working and still bringing in a pay check to help my husband pay off the bills but unfortunately other than helping him keep the house in order and watching the grandchildren , I really can't do all that much but I can bake , clean , put on a smile , shovel snow carefully and do things that need done the best that I can . I am feeling a little blue today but I will not smoke over my mood because I worked way to hard to get to get to this place that when I do think of a cigarette even when I am really stressed out , I think wow I am so thankful that I don't smoke anymore . Feelings and emotions happen whether we smoke or not so get that right mindset in your quit and realize that no matter what is going on in your life that smoking isn't going to help but it will actually make things so much worse and then you will end up right back to Day One and that would really suck big , quitting smoking is  absolutely difficult to say the least but it's absolutely doable and absolutely worth and it's vital for our health and quality of life . Anything worth having in life takes time and effort and I think our quits are the most important thing in our lives so let's protect it with everything in us because believe it or not , there's definitely life after cigarettes so if you are struggling hang on tight and continue plowing forward!
