Day 31: My name is Sky Girl and I'm a lemon-biter...

Blog Post created by SkyGirl on Oct 27, 2012

Ahahahahah!   Youngatheart said the funniest thing to me last night!  She said she remembered when I was "just a lemon-biting Newbie".  I'm still rolling around laughing over that! 

And it got me thinking...has ANYONE here other than me actually used that technique?  When I first arrived on this site, it seemed like that was one of the common crave-busters that people talked about, along with mints, celery, gum, water, etc. 

But when Young made that comment, it made me realize that I have NEVER heard anyone other than ME talk about actually sinking my teeth into a whole lemon.  Not once, but over and over and over again those first few days. 

I tell ya, folks, it WORKS.  My mouth is puckering up right now as I'm thinking about it.  I will NEVER drink lemonade ever again.  I may not ever squeeze lemon over fish ever again, either.  But it got me through those first days, and it's a technique I sincerely endorse to any of you folks just starting your Quit. 

So, picture this:  We're all sitting in a circle at a support group.  It's my turn to speak.  I stand up, take a big breath, and announce, "My name is Sky Girl...and I'm a lemon-biter"   AAAahahahahahahahhaha.

Btw, I'm still riding my 30-Day Freedom Tricycle around in circles on my patio!.  I think when I get to the 40-Day mark, I'll upgrade to a Freedom Riding Mower.  I have a big Radio Flyer wagon I'm towing behind my Freedom Tricycle if anyone wants to hop in!!!  Day 1, Day 7, Day 14, Day 21, Day 24 1/2, whatever!!!  The Freedom Train is for those  REALLY big landmark days.  But that doesn't mean we can't take a ride, too, eh?

Woo-hoo, I'm pedaling my Freedom Tricycle as fast as I can and the wind is blowing my hair back like a Heidi Klum fashion advertisement, Baby!  Have a great day, everyone.  (East Coasters, put on your rainboots!)
