Quit - Day 3 - Trying New Things

Blog Post created by SwimmingKate on Jul 10, 2018

So, it’s Day 3...I’m using NRT, so my cravings aren’t as intense as without, but I’m realizing how smoke-centric my thinking and therefore routine is.   Finding ways to fill the time is causing me to try new things.  Right now I’m at the park on my lunch break.  This is not something that I would normally do.  I moved to SLC from NY about a year and a half ago and therefore I’m not walking as much.  In NY I would walk through parks all the time (usually they are the most pleasant, coolest, and quickest route from one place to another. I didn’t realize how much I missed it.  I actually had to Google Map my way here because I didn’t know where the closest park to my office was.  Parks are so central to everything in NY.

Well, and just like that life gets in the way. Got a call from my wife in the middle of writing the above, and I had to rush home to take her to the hospital to see her uncle.  He’s been in heart failure for a year and was rushed to the hospital this morning because his heart stopped. He’s on life support and I’m hoping that I got her there in time to see him before he passes.
