Although I have not posted on the site for a few days, I have logged in and commented on others and of course made sure I pledged every day. I guess there was not a whole lot in the way to report recently. But today I celebrate 40 days without nicotine, 40 days without a cigarette. I know that really isn't a "milestone" as in 2 weeks, 1 month, etc, but it's a huge deal to me (don't ask me why, I can't explain it to myself let alone anyone else)....In the time that I have not smoked, Noah had built an ark (and my friends / family in TX could use one right now)...I'm not sure what exactly went through his head at that time, but for me, some days it seemed to take forever to get to this point and some days I can't believe it's been this long already. I used to think that taking things "one day a time" was a cliche, but it truly works...I have only been focused on not smoking today, not worrying about what happened yesterday and not worrying about what will happen tomorrow....just today. It's amazing how much life has happened in the last 40 days. There have been some down days with bad news but most really have been up days. Just wanted to share my feeling before I get busy with my Saturday of cleaning / yard work etc.... Have a great weekend everyone!
