Anyone Out There¿¿?????
Prairie.... hey lady... you still around?
Hoping all is okay with you.
I am here and hanging on. Talk me down .
See your other thread.;-)
smoking is NOT going to help any of those frustrations.
All it does is add another layer of "suck".
uou know this.
Would it make you feel "ahhhhh" for a second? Nope.
This far into your quit, you would be like a preteen trying a cig for the first time. GROSS. Sweaty, dizzy, stinky.
Smoking NEVER solved a problem in your life, any more than it could eradicate a source of frustration. It has NO FREAKING POWER. And certainly no power over determined badass women like us!
Now. Go draw a bath, or stick your head in the freezer, eat some cake or something sour or spicy. Sing. Cuss. Yell. Go to bed.
do whatever you need to do to pass this day.
I promise, you'll make it.
NOPE, NOPE, NOPE!!!! Not one puff ever! Hang in there
There is NO reason to smoke. Breathe. Get busy, with your hands, clean a closet, a drawer. shred papers with your hands. Breathe sing, laugh. You have come to far to turn around now. It will pass, just breathe and let it go. Suck on a lemon, straw, chew toothpick, drink water. Read.
Write down why you want to quit and keep it with you. Whats in your tool kit. Coloring Book?, Crossword Puzzle, Game, Chewing Gum, Licorice, cinnamon sticks, cough drops, tea, chipped ice? Book. Think how great it is not to smoke. NOPE will keep you free no matter what. This will pass.
Hey Prairie, how are you doing? I just read your post. Thoughts are with you.
PRAIRIEROSELADY I was probably asleep or trying to be when you wrote this. Hope that things settled down, I am really proud of you for coming here and blogging HELP, that is a huge step forward. We all had moments that were real challenges, we are all stronger for getting through them.
I have to work today so I won't be around until later, if then. Some Saturdays, I collapse when I get home, we shall see about this day.
Little tablet is acting up. Old and probably wearing out. I was trying take daily pledge behind minihorses. Just now. Tablet is bouncing all over place. Feel like Satan is on 1 shoulder and guardian Angel on the other.....Pray for me and know I am here but responding may not be possible very soon . Hanging tough but exhausted from the stress. Prairie
God's grace and this site saved me last night. TY
Glad to hear you are hanging in. I know it can be hard. Deep breaths.
And your STRENGTH!!! Xox
Happy is just the bad tablet, hugs!
"Feel like Satan is on 1 shoulder and guardian Angel on the other....." Stick with the Angel. Listen to the Angel. The Angel is simply the best of you, loving you, hoping for you. Satan is the easy way, the old way. Satan wants the worst for you, pretending to give you the best while giving you the worst.
Go to Relapse Prevention Put "relapse traps" in the search bar. You don't have to obey the urge. You don't have to be a victim. DO NOT RETURN TO GO. You don't have to start over. Just stay on the path and keep going. You don't want the old you. You're stronger than she was.
Sorry I didn't see this when you posted it. I have been there. And you were right to come to the site and post. Unfortunately we all get caught up in our lives and don't always check the site as often as we should. I hope you made it through your crisis and reading through the comments I see that you did. I am so glad! Every minute is precious! Everyday is precious! But never underestimate the power of nicotine. If you know you are going to be tempted, arrange to be busy or stay away from places. I wish you the best.
