It’s that time of year

Hi Everyone, 

I'm just coming to check in and let you know I am still committed to my quit. I have had some ups and downs but the urge to smoke doesn't sneak in. This is a tough time of year for me as I’m sure it is with others. I struggle to keep myself from getting depressed but it is really hard. Sometimes I want to come here and just rant because I don’t feel like I can talk to my family but I stop myself because I don’t won’t be negative. I am depended on a lot so I try to stay strong. I’ve never been good at expressing my feelings so I would love to create a personal journal that no one can get to. Anyone know a site I could do it on?

On a good note;

I have gained some weight over the past couple years and struggled to take it off but I finally found something that helps. 

my son invited me to try a high intensity workout at a fit body boot camp. I never would have thought that I could handle this kind of exercise but I am happy to say that’s I have stuck with it since May and have participated in weight loss challenges that allowed me to lose about 20 lbs. It has given me new goals and something to work towards. The support i receive from gym members and coaches is much like I have received from everyone here and just shows just what can be done with the support of others.


As always, I’d like to thank you for all your help and support. I wish you all the Happy holidays and a safe,happy new year. I will try to check in more often.
