Day Two: Can we do this? YES.

Blog Post created by xjamarkx on Mar 21, 2018

I done pretty good this morning not having an urge to smoke. But by this afternoon, I get a craving. An urge. What's it called? Craving or Urge?

 

This is day two. There are sometimes I can remember the taste of it, when I thought they tasted good. Like when you smell something that isn't there.... some people smell roses, some smell coffee.

 

I mentioned my brother on social media, and thanked him for being on me so hard about quitting. He replied, and said, "You got this...". That was so encouraging, just those 3 words.

On a different note, it's snowing outside. Just a few days ago, I had the windows open because it was almost 70 degrees! That's some wacky weather.

I printed out a list of 101 things to do instead of smoking. Someone posted this, I was looking through the posts and saw it. It is helping a lot, gives me ideas on what to do.

 

I'll be coloring today, and putting up my new elephant curtains. We must go to the store to get the fixtures for the curtains, but that won't be a problem. Then finally, my room will look great. It'll look more grown up. I'm almost 34, and I've had a 'childhood'-like room for way too long. I enjoyed it, but it's time to put that stuff away now. I can always remember the way things was, but I believe that even me changing the curtains can encourage my quit. A different view can make a big difference.   I'm excited!
