Living Life without Smoking

Blog Post created by MichelleDiane on Feb 6, 2018

Hello to everyone.  I haven't been that visible lately, but have been on at least two times a day.  Life is in full force and I find myself thinking about smoking less and being busy more.  That is a wonderful feeling.  I still struggle during some parts of the day, morning being the biggest time.  I also realize that I don't drink my normal two cups of coffee in the morning.  I have decided that is okay.  If I am creating a new norm than drinking my one cup is part of that.  No big deal.  I am so happy to see people hitting their triple digits.  I continues to give me hope that this can be done and that I will do that.  I still am vigilant and recognize the moments that I will need to have a deterrent available whether it is a cold water waiting for me, a fresh stick of gum, my phone to play a quick game of solitaire, or some other activity that I can do.  Work is very busy and find that I am happiest when I have made it through the day without major challenges.  It gives me the strength to work through the times that are rough.  Thanks to all in this community for the continued inspiration, success that are shared, and education.  I hope to never stop learning how to live life to the fullest.
