So I've made it to the end of day 8. All the info and feedback I've gotten from this community has been extremely helpful. I'm not one who shares much or asks for help, so this community is just amazing to me. No judgment, such a relief. I was actually suprised by all the encouragement I have been getting from my FB friends and co-workers.
I have to say since I saved about $125 last week I spoiled myself and got myself a cheap 10 in tablet to play games on...to help distract me.
I can't say it enough, how much this community is helping me. Thank you all!
Oh another thing I have taught myself is, you made it "so many days without a smoke, so you know you don't need it".
It was also really good to talk to the owner of the business I work for, and it's not that small of a business, for him to take the time and talk to me today about his previous addiction to chewing tobacco. He told me his story and just said one day at a time. I'm 48, he's a little younger than me. Such a boost though.
Ahhh, feel better just letting anyone know how I'm doing
