It is pretty cool not to have to open all the doors and windows and spray down the house and wash loads of stinky clothes and blankets and over-Febreeze everything and hose myself down with perfume every. ten. minutes (especially when it's cold)! It's profoundly noticeable that I have so much extra time and energy now that I'm not doing all of that stupid work to cover and deny smoking! I have a three page-long list of to-dos. And seven more days of vacation. Steady as she goes...
A monk once said to me when I asked how to achieve happiness, "Little, little, little." (slowly, piecemeal, steady, notice the small successes)
I hear her voice in my head a lot these last few days. Little, little, little.
I'm sure others can relate. Just thought I'd put this on the table...new found time. A benefit of not smoking.
