Day 6

Blog Post created by arobertson337 on Jan 22, 2018

Woke up super early and couldn't go back to sleep. Played my Wizard of Oz game on my phone to keep busy. Then got up, made tea and had breakfast. Weighed myself and have gained 7 pounds this week. I've really got to get back on track. I have been making poor choices by giving myself a "break" since I quit. Got ready to go to my friends' house for football. Had to stop at the store for a birthday card and dessert. Chose a store that I wouldn't buy cigarettes from normally. I think I will have to avoid the other stores for awhile until I get a real handle on my quit. Got to my friends' house and enjoyed a day of football (Go Pats!  ), good food (no beer this time, staying away until I feel more confident in my quit) and good company. Didn't quite get the reaction I was hoping for when I told them I quit. "Oh yeah? Really?" I know they would love it if I quit for good, but maybe they wouldn't be surprised if I failed like all the other times. Plus they're non-smokers, they don't really understand the addiction. I won't see them again for at least another month. By then I will be well into my quit and hopefully can have a drink with them! Got home and winding down the day, looking up videos on YouTube to reinforce my quit. Almost 1 week! Just Keep Swimming!
