Hello my EX Community Family.Happy Sunday everyone...Today with the help of my awesome God above and all of you amazing people on this site this is my 14 day smoke free☺still taking things a day at a time I have my good days and bad days and still fighting the mind set of a smoker but riding out every urge and cravings as it comes...this week I was pretty much home bound I caught that awful cold that has been going around and pretty much kicked my butt this past week but i am at the tail end of it now and feeling much better...i have been reading a lot of books lately and word searches and cross word puzzles are becoming my new friend especially when I can't sleep or get anxious at 3:00 A.M. they come in handy...well that another little up date on how i am doing i hope everyone is doing well and working there program to stay healthy and smoke free I send everyone positive energy good vibes and hugs keep pressing on


I am doing ok hanging in there today is my sixth day smoke free the first 48 hours after were pretty tuff but i am sticking to my guns and not lighting up.I have did my research before this journey of mine began about using any quit smoking aids like the patch or medication like chantix because i have used them before and felt that they were not much help so i decided this time not to use them but i have stocked up on a few other things that i felt would be useful to me to help me stay quit like hard candy regular chewing gum fruits and vegetable sticks like carrots and celery i have also bought a couple of things to keep me busy like word searches cross word puzzles books to read and a note book to write my thoughts and feelings down so one of my biggest triggers is after i eat a meal so now right after i eat i pull out the word searchs and cross word puzzles and work on them for a that is a little up date on my progress thank you my fellow EXers for listening to me i send everyone good positive energy good vibes and hugs....six days of freedom☺
