Day 12 and I'm Feeling Blue

Blog Post created by missellen on Mar 29, 2018

The energy burst I had the other afternoon, burst and then fled. I am just so tired. 

 

It's grey and rainy today--although warmer. I actually like this weather typically, but today it is more reflective of my mood. 

 

I know a cigarette will not make me feel better--I mean, the dopamine buzz may momentarily, but the ensuring guilt and disappointment won't be worth it.  But, I have had a habit of doing those kinds of things most of my life--the momentary, fleeting sense of feeling "good" or worthwhile would supersede the inevitable crash. I did that with cigarettes, men, drinking, spending money etc.  Well, I managed to get over doing that with men and booze and money, but the cigs held on. So, I still feel that same pull towards them.

 

I just want to go back to bed and turn today off, but alas, things to do, people to see, places to go. Sigh.
