Hello Everyone, These last several days have been difficult. I have not been feeling well. Besides being VERY tired I have been have some problems with my voice and my throat does not feel right. I don't know if I have some kind of infection, allergies (never had before) or a result of quitting. If anyone has heard of a withdrawal issues involving your voice and throat I would love to hear about it.
I had to count the days for the title of this blog. That was a surprise to me. I thought I would just know it. It seems I haven't been paying attention to the time. The cravings are less than last week. Some this week are pretty strong though. Whenever I feel those urges I come to this site and read others posts and blogs. I do learn a lot from those. I read today about riding the urge like a ocean wave coming into shore. I really liked that. I can actually see it in my mind. I compared it to child labor and watching the strength of the contractions on the monitor, starting low and growing, then peaking and going down.
I will be out of touch this weekend, going camping. Being outside is needed I think. Between the not feeling well and some depression I think some time outside will be great. I really want to feel better though, it is draining me.
