day 7

It is amazing to me that this week has gone so fast. We all know that as we age, time speeds by but it seems a good thing while we are quitting.

Yesterday was slightly rougher now today seems easier. That's what makes quitting doable. During the rough times we can tell ourselves that soon it will be easier and we will feel grateful that we didn't give in. I pray that I keep feeling this way but today I won't smoke. I heard someone say in an AA meeting that today he will stay sober, tomorrow he will get drunk but not today. Then when he wakes up tomorrow, it is today again and the process starts over. Sounds like a doable concept.

I still have chest tightness with occasions of shortness of breath even while at rest. As long as I feel like this, I don't want to smoke. God doing for me what I can't do for myself but I do hope it gets better over time.

I can't imagine having a successful quit without this site. I recommend it whenever I talk to anyone that says they want to quit but I've never seen anyone take advantage of it. Maybe they are not really wanting to quit yet.

Hoping everyone has a wonderful Sunday!
