D.E.B.S - Decide Educate Believe Succeed ~ it's definetly hair pulling and feeling like your crawling out of your skin at times with moodswings and lack of sleep thrown in PLUS feeling like you want to rip someone's face off anyone's face it really doesn't  matter who's face BUT I doubt you'll actually do it  as much as I wanted to at times I didn't, as horrendous as those early days and weeks of quitting smoking ARE they're also very Doable BUT you must be willing determined and totally committed to succeed then there's absolutely no way you will FAIL! Once you've made it through the rough patches and into that good place in your quit THEN none of US must allow ourselves to become lazy and complacent instead let's always remember and N.E.F - Never Ever Forget how horrid it was because going back to another Day ONE would totally suck big time BUT each and every Day WON is a GIFT of LIFE!  

 

 

On a lighter note

I'm wondering when it's time to go back normal do we really want to go back to the way it was? I'm beginning to wonder if that normal really was normal hummm! I think there needs to be more love and compassion in this World and it has to begin with our world leaders because they have to give a damn if they want the rest of us to, hate AND racism shouldn't be flaunted BY anyone especially those in power ALL LIVES MATTER! My God this world is falling apart around us geesh I'm flabbergasted AND on that note I'll stop AND say that N.M.W - No Matter What ~ we can AND will perservere through these stressful times BY sticking with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W ~ because that's the only way to remain Smokefree.....

There is still so much good in this World AND I really pray that we'll start to see alot of more soon the sooner the better......

I'm late BUT I'm here and best of all I'm Smokefree and although I had a hectic evening and a busy start to the day I know that by sticking with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W ~ I'll continue living a Smokefree Life which is the gift of LIFE PLUS our lives literally depends on us to look after ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us.....

Life is full of ups and downs and can and will definitely kick us in the teeth at times and it's most likely going to happen when we least EXpect it plus life is going to happen whether we smoke or not so let's continue to make the CHOICE  to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W. so we can be around to enjoy the little things in LIFE that's actually the the big things in LIFE and the best part is quitting smoking and remaining quit is absolutely DOABLE definetly not easy by any stretch of the imagination in those early weeks BUT with commitment and perseverance it's very DOABLE....

N.O.P.E and vigilance are KEY to remaining Smokefree and besides relapsing isn't an option anymore NOT when our lives literally depends on to quit and stay quit LIFE is going to happen whether we smoke or not so let's NOT allow ourselves to to screw up a perfectly beautiful quit because whatever is happening is going to happen so we might just as well stick with our previous QUITS....

 

We're finally getting Summer weather here in Carleton County N.B BUT of course that means temps in the 30s on the Celcius side or the low 90s°F BUT I'm not going to complain especially after the13 inches of the white crap that we got on Mothers day besides we've got the air conditioner ready to rock and roll AND I'm so ready for Summer, I'm going to enjoy it in spite of the humidity and the horrid Covid 19 pandemic which unfortunately we haven't got any control over other than wearing masks and social distancing BUT we've got complete control over our quits because as long as we choose to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W then we'll continue to reap the benefits of Freedom.....

I'd like to wish each of you reading this a Stressfree hasslefree BUT most importantly a Smokefree Day always stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W because it guarantees a Smokefree Life.......

On behalf of Canada I'd like to wish my American friends a safe Memorial day....

Here's a few of Marks babies in the greenhouse hopefully we're done with the heavy frost because these tomato plants need to be outside this week we'll keep a listen to the weather just in case we'll need to cover them.....

Good Sunday morning everyone it was a cold night at 30°F brrr thankfully Mark covered what he's got planted the tomato plants are safe in the greenhouse they'll go out next weekend hopefully the nights will start to warm up BUT we're used to frost in May and God forbid we've had the odd frost in June BUT life happens whether we smoke or not so let's continue to move forward stacking up those precious DOF - Days Of Freedom so each evening we can look ourselves in the mirror and say YAY for another Day WON we MUST NOT let life kick us in the teeth to the point where we let our guard down and think just ONE would be OK!!! N.O.P.E AND VIGILANCE ARE KEY TO A SMOKEFREE LIFE And besides relapsing isn't an option anymore.....

Anything in this life worth having takes time and effort and quitting smoking should be at the top of the list of things to do so we can be around to enjoy the little things in LIFE that's actually the the big things in LIFE! I know beyond a shadow of a doubt how horrendous it was in my early days and weeks of quitting smoking BUT with commitment and perseverance I made it through and so can anyone and everyone BUT it's most definetly not easy by any stretch of the imagination BUT boy oh boy it's so worth itto be Free.....here's a picture I snapped of my 11 year old grandson this morning snoring away we're now in phase 3 in NB so I've got him for the weekend  I woke up at 6 and looked over at him I've got 2 single beds in my room Mark and I started sleeping in separate rooms way back when I had jaw surgery he was worried about smacking me in the mouth in his sleep and we just got in the habit of it, I think we sleep better anyway. I've got a batch of bread on this morning earlier than usual LOL   sticking with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W guarantees us a lifetime of Freedom.....

I was looking through some old pics of the grandchildren wow where has the time gone!!!!

Vigilance is key to remaining Smokefree

In order to to reach that AHA Moment you have to get the UMPH which you will BUT only by continuing to perservere through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and moodswings and lack of sleep going back to another Day ONE isn't an option anymore NOT when your life AND all of our lives literally depends on us to nurture and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the GIFT OF LIFE AND the best thing is as difficult as quitting smoking is it's also very Doable and totally worth it to be Free..... No more yuckies (cigarettes) N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W works..... Only Days WON will do......


N.O.P.E. means N.O.P.E. N.M.W. in order to live a Smokefree Life, the cravings and moodswings and lack of sleep can feel almost overpowering at times BUT you can and must perservere through the horrid rough patches in order to get to that good place in your quit where you realize how much better life is as an EX Smoker Non Smoker or EXer it doesn't matter what you call it as long as you are vigilant and stick with your awesome quit journey......

Our quits must be our #1 priority so we can live a life of Freedom.......

 

No Matter What day it is or no matter what's going on in our lives we've got to make the choice to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W so we can continue living a Smokefree Life because our lives literally depends on us to nurture and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE....

This bottom pin would be awesome because it takes me 2 and half hours to mow the lawn with a gas push mower BUT then again I need to be thankful that I'm still able to plus it's great exercise ......

I remember only too well how horrendous it was in those early days and weeks of quitting smoking BUT thankfully I found this community and although I was lurking in the shadows in the early days I was also reading everything I could find right here on this site which strengthened my resolve to kick the nicotine poison to the curb permanently it wasn't easy by any stretch of the imagination for some reason and I have no clue why BUT I got away from the site for a few days and on my 18th day I was ready to jump in my car and buy a carton of cigarettes SCREW just the pk BUT thankfully I remembered and got on line and finally commented on something I believe it was moody_9-18-13 told me to write a blog and say a little about myself and so I did and here I am on 2136 days WON! There were days I felt like I was literally crawling out of my own skin so I'd come here for support PLUS there were times that I wanted to tear my hair out or rip someone's face off anyone's face it really didn't matter who's face so I'd come here. I'm so thankful that there's LIFE after Cigarettes because it's worth all of the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and moodswings and lack of sleep to get to that good place in your quit where you realize how much better life is as an EX Smoker Non Smoker or EXer it doesn't matter what you call it as long as you choose to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W......

Deep breaths and believe in yourself because you can and will succeed in living a life of Freedom......

I'm dragging my butt this morning so I'll just wish each of you reading this a Stressfree hasslefree BUT most importantly a Smokefree Day AND let's always remember and N.E.F - Never Ever Forget ~ that as long as we all choose to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance N.M.W then there's absolutely no way any of will FAIL there's always going to be days that we'll feel like what the HELL Aaah surely just ONE would be OK BUT that's a downright LIE that's where N.O.P.E AND VIGILANCE COMES IN!!!!

Don't let the change of seasons or this horrid Coronavirus or anything else that's happening in life screw up a perfectly beautiful quit! N.O.P.E and vigilance works when applied on a daily basis PLUS relapsing isn't an option anymore because we don't do that anymore....
