Yup, still not smoking and yup, still bored to tears. 1-1/2 week and this sling will be gone. I know I won't be building bridges or climbing rock walls at that time, but it will be nice to be able to drive. At least the weather is nice and I can go outside to walk or read or whatever.
I think I am over my smoking urge when I sit on my front porch. I can even sit out there now with my sister on the porch swing and smoking. It's not my favorite thing to do, but I can do it. My neighbor told me yesterday that other people smoking doesn't bother her much at all, if any, and she's been quit for a bunch of years. That gives me hope that I won't continue to be grossed out. But the good new is that I can sit on my glider on my porch and that's that. So many bridges to cross!
I lost a pound last week, so that's a step in the right direction. I try to move every day, but some days, I'm just a cranky lump on a log. This too will pass! What I'm not doing is drowning my grumpiness in cigarettes and I haven't much thought about it.
To all the newbies out there, sorry I haven't been here to cheer you on. I will be! If it wasn't for the people here, I' not sure I would have remained accountable to myself enough to keep the quit going. It's SO worth it.
I hope everyone is having a beautiful beginning to another smoke-free week with me!
