Good morning ex community. I've been behind the scenes for about a month now trying to figure out to to get back to my journey. I know I can't go back, but I will keep the lessons I learned to help me towards a better future one day at a time. My first challenge other than not smoking (both I believe equally important) is acceptance. I don't believe I truly accept that I am an addict and I was powerless over nicotine. I do see that now, but will go through a deeper acceptance through my journey. I am happy to be back and be free from cigarettes. Last night I took the remainder of a pack and soaked it under water and threw it away with my lighter. I am going to take my life back one day at a time.
All the best,
