Checking In

Blog Post created by Jerica_82 on May 31, 2018

Hi, everyone.  Just thought I'd check in as I haven't been on here in a while.  I have 131 DOF now.  I'm pleased with my progress but i'd be lying if i said there werent days when I really felt the urge for a "break".  I've stayed strong though.  Thank You, Lord! I knew that this summer would be a test of strength and some days it definitely is when my kids are fighting and I just long for that few minutes to myself.  I've got a teenager and a toddler plus 2 kids in-between them and, as people say, I've got my hands full.  I still take a minute or two for myself but I do things that don't cause me the anxiety and shame that smoking did.  We've got a garden growing in our back yard and I enjoy yard work (sounds crazy, huh?) so using our yard for something productive as opposed to my old hiding spot for smoking is a nice change. Lol.  I try not to think about smoking often and if I do think about it, I associate with something dumb I did in the past, not an option in the present time or future.  Everyone here probably understands what Im trying to say. =)  I have a lot of catching up to do on here but I do hope everyone is doing great!
