Almost through No Man’s Land

I’ve been very scarce lately.  No reason, other than life just getting in the way.  I’ve been trucking along and doing ok.  But out of nowhere tonight, I got cravings REALLY bad.  Fortunately, I will not act on them.  But the cravings were strong.  Thankfully they’re dissipating.  But it could just be a response to the way things have been going in life lately.  I’ve been crazy busy at my fulltime job...I worked two difficult shifts at my part-time job 2 nights in a row back to back.  I’m not doing so great in the love department, and am trying to focus on being happy yeah there’s a lot going on.  I’m not going to go back to smoking I guess I’m unlearning old coping patterns.  In the past when stuff got crazy like this, I’d just light up.  So I’m breaking those old thinking patterns and trying new ways of coping.  In the morning, I’ll go to the gym.  I’ll get back to work, and will get rest this week.  Slowly life will fall back into place.  Guess I just needed to come here to write this all down.  Anyway, onward I go.  The light at the end of rigs tunnel is getting bigger and brighter.  So I keep moving.  Anyways good night and I’ll write again, soon.
