I’ve been reading so much here and getting such great support.  No smoke up my skirt answers, but real truths of others experiences echoed by others.  At day 12, I read the 2nd week wasn’t going to be as much better than I thought.  True.  Now I’ve run across a thread about No Mans Land at about 30 days and how hard a passage that could be for a long time.  It’s hard to keep up a good mental attitude when I keep hearing it’s going to possibly get even harder.  I’ve caught a cold so that isn’t helping either.  I’m not looking for miracles, but just reading at some point I will be glad isn’t cutting iit right now.  I’m depressed, tired and crying so much.  I don’t want a cigarette.  I’m just not finding coming here as appealing (?) as I did.  What else will I read with no real light can cling to?  It’s not anyone here’s fault, just my enthusiasm waning faster than I expected.  I’m also alone, literally.  No family, friends.  Just people I pay to spill my guts and am cut off from that because of various reasons for the next 2 weeks.  Can’t volunteer because I am sick.  Have an elderly dog I very worried about.   I watched cancer take my husband for 4 years and while this is not as horrid as that, I’m at a loss of how to do this alone.  This place is great, but it doesn’t replace human contact.  Sorry for making this sound like a plea for therapy, but addiction does need a lot of psych help.  I wish I did have someone here I could gripe to and maybe help me lighten up a bit.  Not that I would, but Anaussiemom said she wanted to bite her husband.  I understand that feeling.  I know if mine were here I’d see some extra motivation.  More time to live with him.  I just want to crawl into bed and not wake up for a very long time.  This quit was not planned.  I had no choice so maybe that is playing into it?  No reading, no planned date, no time to educate myself. Just bam!


I thank everyone of you for putting up with me.
