For so long I did exactly what Terrie_Quit said not to do in her discussion, "Monday's Promise: Responsibility." I shirked my responsibility for my health and happiness and blamed others for my problems and predicaments. Well, NO MORE! I AM on Day 44 of my new way of living without the use of cigarettes and I couldn't be happier. Actually, on top of that, I've now been completely free of nicotine and off the Welbutrin for about a week now. I have never felt better! I really mean that. Of course, these are not the only things I've done to improve myself. Prayer, meditation and an attitude of gratitude and acceptance of life on life's terms, staying in close contact with good people as well as the energy cultivation practice of Tai Chi/Chi Gong have led me to an overwhelming sense of peace and lasting happiness. I not trying to brag here. These are simply the facts of what has been happening in my life. I have MANY to thank for the condition I find myself in ToDay. Too many to mention here. I do want to say, Thank You to all of you on this site for your wisdom and invaluable support in this incredibly tough process of attaining FREEDOM from the worst addiction I've ever battled...and I've been addicted to virtually everything so that's saying a LOT!) If I come across as being self-righteous, that's not my intent. I just want to help the still-suffering addict in the only way I know how, which is sharing what has worked for me.
Love and Best Wishes to you All on your Journey.
