At 9:00 PM PST tonight, I will have made it to 50 days.  I feel so good about this, and I have felt great in this quit.  I am moving slowly through No Man’s Land, taking it one step at a time and protecting my quit and holding tight to it.  Despite the craziness of this pandemic, and uncertainty about whether or not I will have to go on unemployment, (if I do hopefully it will be temporary), I am staying strong and confident with this quit.  I try to get on every day to do the daily pledge, I am doing the patch and wellbutrin (only 3 more weeks on the patch), and i’m doing quit smoking meditations that i find on youtube at night.  Which by the way help SO much.  

what is different about this quit?  I tell myself every morning when i wake up that I love myself more than the poison I was ingesting for so long.  And life is much better as a non-smoker.  I feel better, i look better, i’m sleeping better, and my lungs are healing.  This is the best thing i have done for myself in years.  To all the newbies reading this:  don’t give up.  It is so worth it.  And if I can do it, anyone can.  Stay strong everyone!!!!
