Ohnotagain......you ready? :)

Hey Michelle.. It's a brand new year.. and I think it's time we try a taper.. I'm going to try to go to 3 this weekend. I have a 3 day weekend, so this will be perfect. I'm sitting at work right now, the only one here.. About to go home. Thought I'd send this post to see if you're ready!!

Cowgirl Up!

Re: Ohnotagain......you ready? :)

Way to go. How many were you taking before? I have run out but had cut back until the weekend when I had some neck and back pain. Oh well, I will just have to tough it out. I had an opportunity to taper and blew it. I get what I deserve.

Thanks Yoss !!! Good to be back, and good to "see" you all again !!! How is everything going for you? Mexico would be great for your health. Just being able to wake up without worrying about all the pressures of daily life is a great "cure" in itself !!!!! Let me know if you get that prescription !!!

Hugs, Michelle

Re: Ohnotagain......you ready? :)

so far, so good. well, kinda. actually, i did 3 yesterday and then today, i ended up doing another 1 at 5pm. it all has to do with stress for me i think. i was all stressed out and started feeling cruddy, so i thought "oh, i need another mg. so instead of even trying not to take it, i took it. cuz then i was afraid i would be stuck at work with a client feeling cruddy if i didnt take it. i think i will have to have a little more backbone and just get through two whole days of three. ill start tomorrow.
oh yeah, and today i started taking my chantix to quit smoking. ive been promising my kids that jan 23rd was the day and i cant back out. i really really want to quit smoking. so far, ive smoked less today. i have one week to still smoke, then bam!, next wed i stop altogether. wish me luck with that too
let me know how today went for you brandi.

talk soon !!!

hugs, michelle

Re: Ohnotagain......you ready? :)

Hey Michelle..

I have to admit.. I haven't done 3 yet. I always feel like I have to have that whole 2 mg pill in the evening.. and I know that I don't. So today is the day. I'm doing 3 and that's all there is to it. I'm not going back to the Dr that prescribed it to me, so I have to taper with what I have left. So.. it's do or die for me. I just have to buck up.. lol So I'll be rooting for you and vice versa.. we'll make it thru together!!

Re: Ohnotagain......you ready? :)

Awwww c'mon.... You two are two of the strongest hotties I 'know' - you can do this.....BOTH of you can. Sure it's tough - but again, so are you - so stop worrying about it and and follow Nike's advice and JUST DO IT!! LOL.... (I know, listen to me, right? I lasted a wholllllle SIX WEEKS on Sub....ugh...)

I also think it's awesome that you're both doin it 'together'. It kinda gives ya's that extra little 'umpffff' to do it - and continue doing it.... LoL - maybe with a tad bit of fear of not wanting to let the other down....

So keep it up Gal - I am rottin' for both of you 110%!!!!

Re: Ohnotagain......you ready? :)

Michelle,
The evening started out bad, but got better. My Mom made me a hot bath w/ candles & music.. ( I know what you're thinking... you have a husband???) But that's another story in itself. So that helped relax me more. Still did 4 today.. but am going to try really hard to do 3 tomorrow..
keep me posted!!

Re: Ohnotagain......you ready? :)

LOL I should clarify. I have a husband, but he's not thoughtful enough to fix a bath or do anything like that.. so my Mama had to do it.. that's what I meant in it being another story.. (maybe the marriage board? lol)

I am going to shock you.. I think I'm doing 2 today. At least that's what I'm shooting for. I took my 2 yesterday morning, and that evening as I took the other 2 (oops..) that I really think I could've went without them. So, trying 2 for the day.. In the middle of the night I may have to get up and take a mg. But I'm shooting for it.

I'm here with ya, girlie!! Keep me posted!

Brandi
