I live on the West Coast of North America and it gets stormy! Where I live, if I want a smoke, I have go outside. NOT ANY MORE. Over the last week, including ToDay, I have made a point of acknowledging how great it is to be able to stay indoors when I'm home, rather than NEEDING to go out into the rain and wind, EVERY HOUR or so in order to relieve that anxious and tense feeling that builds up after the previous dose of nicotine peters off. Yes, it's the little things that add so much to raise the quality of life from bearable to enjoyable, and sometimes even blissful. I thought having a cigarette would do this. Maybe sometimes it did, but the vast majority of the time, I really didn't like it at all. I fact, over the past couple of years, I hated being slave to this addiction. Now, I love being peaceful, and peace and hate are in direct conflict with each other, which is why I'm so very pleased to be free from my dependency on tobacco thus far. Thank you all for supporting me in my quit.
