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!)
