ok.. so i have quit before (obviously not for very long) but all the times i have quit in the past it wasn't this hard...

why is it THIS time... i am struggling??? have i "cheated"?? (as my husband puts it) and i can honestly say NO!!! and please don't get me wrong i am VERY proud of myself for not slipping... but have i wanted to??? uh... YEAH!!!! let's see... i am a stay at home mom of 2 1/2 year old (almost 3 year old) TRIPLET boys!!!!

i barely get out of the house (except for the occasional trip to the grocery store)
my going outside for a smoke was my own "time out" and now that i don't have that i feel like i'm gonna go bananas!!! i asked my husband today if he thought i was getting meaner... cause it sure seems like i am... and he says "no, you're doing great".... i don't feel like it!!!

and it's weird... cause it's not like i think about smoking every minute... but towards the end of the day... when my boys are at their "most active" (for lack of a better term) that's when it hits me... my doc put me on wellbutrin and it has helped ease the "urge" for the most part.... and i am trying my absolute hardest not to substitute food for smoking (even though i have had my fair share of chocolate chip cookies in the past few days)

someone please tell me i'm not crazy!!! that what i am feeling is "normal" and expected.... or... if i am loopy... please tell me!!!

ok.... i'm gonna go have a cookie now... LOL!!! i look forward to hearing what ya'll have to say!!! i need to hear it from people who know what i'm going thru!!!

aloha!
