Day One...thoughts

Blog Post created by NeverGiveUpQuitting on Aug 13, 2019

I'm going to use this as a tool to document what is going on in my head. Sometimes I'll write everything at once and others I'll enter one thought...go away...and then another thought. No plan - just randomness. 

 

9:03 a.m. Today is the day. I'm sick of:

  •    spending money on smoking
  •    looking for my lighter
  •    sticking cigs and lighters down my top (so I don't lose them)
  •    smelling like that
  •    having my mouth taste like this
  •    wondering if I have cancer
  •    having to go outside in the heat, rain, and cold

 

I listened to a hypnotist as I was falling asleep last night. I woke up and didn't *need* a smoke. I smoked but just out of habit and I knew it. I have one smoke left in my purse.

 

Today I'm picking up Chantix. I have a list of other tools:

  • pick up chantix
  • call about acupunture
  • read/post here
  • read/listen to things about not smoking on the web

 

It just occurred to me that I should smoke. It's not a gut-wrenching craving but more of a thought. Yeah you should smoke now type of thing. What was going through my head was that I should go through my emails at work. Procrastination, party of one? Yup. Here we go. 

 

I may as well just quit today.
