Is ok to cry. It has been 90 days since I light up my last cigarette . It has been very emotional at times. The process of living without smoking. There are times that I think I am not going to make it but there is time when I am so proud of myself and keeping positive that I am going to get there where I want to be being free. I have been afraid of the days, the hours being afraid of failure being afraid of the process of feeling sad and cry for any reason. Quitting has being a process of letting go something call my best friend. A friend that was taking my health my money and my time. So IS OK TO CRY. When my emotions can be hold any more I just let it out . And I keep telling myself I am not going to smoke. I smoke for 40 years 3 to 6 cigarette per day. It has taking some time to get used to not to smoke specially in the morning or when I will just drive on my work Van I am glad I sold it. My very bad days I am strong and just have to say NOP I am not going to smoke, So today I said Freedom from Smoking and with the Higher Power I will make it to the Mile Stone
Remember, it is not really the stress, frustration or even the craving that causes us to keep using nicotine again, but rather our lack of serenity and courage to deal with the craving. Help comes from your Higher Power, from the group, and from your own healthy inner self! May God be with you now!
Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
