Today is Day 37 not smoking. I’m the grand scheme of things, it’s nothing. But things are a lot easier now than on Day 1. I haven’t had any cravings today. I didn’t have any this weekend either. That is big considering I did something that use to trigger me big time: writing. I didn’t even think about smoking even though I was tense. To write, I simply write as much as I can, then take a break when I get writer’s block.
I am nervous about school. I know it will be very stressful. In the past, I used addictive activities to cope with stress. No doubt I will do the same thing this time. I try not to obsess about it. I won’t be in school until January, and I can only work my recovery program today.
