Day six, I'm attempting to find a new "normal" seems like this dumb smoking thing hits most aspects of my life, even though I am on the patch. I have had been fortunate in more hours at work, which has helped keep me busy. Things are kind of distant between my husband and I, not bad, just distant for now. I have moments of anger and other moments of sadness. I constantly try to not eat, which creates it's own strangeness, and I've been working out, but not as much as I would like. I'm sure I'm just being a little hard on myself, but don't really know how to not be. And a part of me isn't interested in dealing with emotions that come up from not smoking. The gray rainy days of January are not helping.
I'm going to continue to be an ex-smoker, just wish things would fall into some sort of normalcy sooner than later, (haven't ever been the patient type).
I do have much to be thankful for and am trying to focus on that. I have to say working out does help.
Thank you for listening\reading.
