using the onscreen keyboard is painfully slow but since i HAVE MORE PATIENCE these days i wanted to document my progress on this wonderful journey.
~Over 2000 sickorettes not smoked
~i weigh the same today as i did on Day 1.
~no longer need anti-anxiety med (certainly did need it while learning my new job).
~work in a fast-paced, highly fluid, physically-demanding environment and am doing ok. i enjoy my team and am accepted and liked by coworkers and management. l feel good when i leave work. Don't need that "stress-
relieving ' smoke. Amazing I'm doing a job i never thought i could do---at 69 yrs old!
~i like myself more. Not in the rather arrogant (actually self-defensive) way of my closet-smoking days, but more a quiet self-assurance borne from self-respect. Feels good!
~Greater tolerance/Less judgement of others and self. Less social anxiety, more acceptance. Less frustration, more perseverance.
~Depression replaced by gratitude and hope.
I've been working on my spiritual life as well as my quit...they seem to go hand-in-hand at least for me....both are lifelong endeavors....
Well it's taken me a half-hour to write this and i must move on.....
thank you from the bottom of my heart.....couldn't have done it
without you! XOXOXOXOXOXO
