My Quit Journey Day 3 & 4

Blog Post created by Marigene6266 on Aug 13, 2020

Yesterday was uneventful and I really did not have much to say. I did have one thing to happen that I did not think to much of but it happened again today so I feel I have to shout it out to all. I woke up and did not physically crave a smoke!!!! The craving was still there but it was all psychological; "habit" and I beat it!!!!!!!!!!!! Every time in the past I attempted to quit I still had that physical craving. I honestly feel that is why I was unsuccessful in the past. I have never been this confident, felt this strong in my desire to quit! I know I still have a long way to go and and I am by no means over my addiction but I am starting to believe that I truly got this!!!!!

 

I added a new activity to my day as well, I have started walking again. I used to walk 5-6 miles a day but I typically have to walk alone and became afraid to do so. A part of my health concerns are a bad back and knees (had my tailbone surgically removed about 25 years ago due to a childhood injury) . I'm only walking about a quarter of a mile but adding a few hundred yards with each walk. I've been having to put topical pain medication on my back when I return but I'm not going to give up. It seems to be giving me enough exercise that the evening jitters have not returned over the last two days since I started it. 

 

I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!!!
