Sorry for not being very active lately; my life has been full of sadness. No need for any details, because I recognize the blessings in my life, and how much luckier than others I am, in many respects. It just seems many reasons to be sad have assaulted me all at once.
And you would be guessing right, if thinking smoking had been on my mind way more often than let's say, last year this time of the year.
Someone here asked, and we all commented, "does EX work?". And I am here to say yes it does, and I am the living proof at 792 DOF (has been 2 years on March).
Because I learned here smoking is an addiction not a habit, I learned how my addict brain will make me think of it as the solution to all stress, sadness, depression, happiness, relaxation! I know that, I learned it here and I know despite the thought of smoking poking at me daily, I know it is not the answer to my sadness.
So I just don't smoke.
Because I know I want to be an EX, and I know there is no such thing like just one, so if I pick up just one, it will take me a while, if ever, to become an EX again.
And I do not want that for myself, so I just don't smoke, and life goes on.
