Today is my 11th successful day of no smoking. I am proud to say, I think very little about smoking, because I dream about it ALL NIGHT LONG....haha that I wake up exhausted from all the smoking I did in my dreams. (very weird). I have however taken up a new habit....EATING!!! and I mean everything...I never had a sweet tooth, but now I have an incredible sweet tooth...Jelly babies, wine gums, chocolate, Hot Chocolate, sheewweee the list goes on. I have now been to the shops and stocked up on food at work. I now have naartjies (South African oranges), grapes, banana's, nuts and raisins, to hopefully eat a bit more health conscious foods. So will see how long it take to devout this amount of food. Hmmmm
However, I am off to book club tonight and this is going to be my first challenge since I have stopped smoking. Book club does involve a lots of books....But...it also involves Wine, Dinner and my awesome friends. At the moment i am taking a few deep breaths, and hitting that devil off my shoulder so that i do not even have to think about it, but it is definitely in the forefront of my mind. I know I wont have even one puff, but I just hate being in that predicament...whereby you have to make a choice!!! You have to make a conscious effort to think about not smoking.
Anyway, I know I will be fine...just sharing my thoughts for now.
Keep up the good work everyone....See you on the other side.
