Hanging in there

Blog Post created by constanceclum on Aug 18, 2019

I'm at the end of 3 weeks of freedom, and I am so grateful! But the past week seems the hardest. The craves are gone, but this persistent "empty" feeling in my chest is wearing my down. I am continuing to use all the tools I have been using

(i.e. deep breathing, constant fluids, staying busy and staying close to this site) and, whenever I think of smoking, I know that's not really what I want. It's not the answer to any problem, and I don't want to stop before the miracle. I just pray (and I'm also using prayer that I think is the real answer to all my problems) that next week will give me the break I needd before entering NML.


I've slept better the past 2 nights which is a vast improvement. And I've forced myself to slow down which is helping my mental health. I think I just need a boost from you Exer's to get the motivation and excitement flowing again.


Hope all of you are having a nice, relaxing, smoke-free w/e.
