Marilyn.H.July.14.14. 's blog this morning got me thinking. We CAN, in some measure, choose how difficult our quits will be. Go with the flow, educate yourself so you understand what is happening, and accept the symptoms of withdrawal each day. Have a plan what you will do when it gets difficult and follow it. Work at it in the early days. Know that it is going to take awhile - and be secure in the knowledge that all the lousy days are going to pass. Look forward to the end of the journey, secure in the knowledge that the uncomfortable parts will end, and it will be worth all the effort it has taken.
