Even this, just this, is enough

I wish I could say that I was able to completely be free of nicotine.  I am using the patch but I have cut down by 3-5 cigarettes a day for 10 days.  I am feeling some withdrawal symptoms.  Each day, I challenge myself not to smoke at all, but I have not been able to accomplish that.  This accomplishment is alot so far for someone who has never even attempted to quit in the last 20 years.  Somehow I still feel badly about not being able to wholeheartedly quit, but I still tell myself that even this, just this, is enough as I have my sites on freedom and I will get there!  


I changed my quit date to May 11 the date that my Aunt E could not breath anymore from smoking and had to be given morphine until she passed.  This May 11 will be the one year anniversary of her death.  I can't believe I could still smoke after seeing that/watching her go through that!
