I woke up this morning with a bit of a headache! My first thought was that the 4 1/2 hours of sleep was not enough! Then I came in a fired up my computer! I understood right away that sleep had nothing to do with my headache! It was right in front of my eyes! My quit clock said I had 257 days! This is the much feared 258 day headache! And we all know there are only two options! I had to choose whether to suffer through it or go buy cigarettes! Once again I choose to suffer! Of course as the day progressed and I suffered in silence, I could not help but remember all the suffering I have gone through since I began this quit! There were those two cardiac episode that I had because of my quit! There was that incident a few days back where the ground collapsed under my foot! Because of my quit I twisted my knee, my ankle, and my hip! If I had just had a cigarette surely I would not have been in pain! And then there was the time---wait--wait---wait a minute!!!! This had nothing to my quit! It is the everyday aches and pains of life! I had the same things when I smoked! I just did not have a quit to blame them on!
Relax people! Your quit is not going to turn you into a pain free, worry free person. It will make your life better in the long run! But not perfect! You already know all this. But the nicodemon!!! That little ******* keeps telling you that if you smoke all your problems will be solved! Just like they were last time you smoked! Do not let him blow that smoke up your skirt! It is the same kind of lie that kept you hooked for (fill in the blank)________ years!
Respect yourself and respect your quit! Life will never be perfect, but it is much better smoke free!!!
