Re: My free smoke days

OMG, don't give up, Gladys!!! You've come so far.

I had a few real anxiety-filled days right around day 40. Never in my life felt anything like that. Somehow I got through it and didn't smoke. You can, too! Just remind yourself how far you've come, how you don't want to have to do this again. Smoking is not an option.

Don't forget how many years, how many puffs, how many times you felt anxious, sad, happy or angry about something. What did you do? You lit up. Well, that's not an option anymore, is it? IMO, it's natural and "normal" that we go a little haywire when we're not lighting up anymore. You WILL get through it. And you know what? You WILL get through the next bump in the road, whether it's anxiety, sadness, fear ... whatever it is, you WILL get through it.

Smoking will not fix what you're feeling, and you know that's true. You will end up feeling guilty and like a failure on top of what you're feeling right now.

Take deep breaths. Treat yourself to something nice. Anything to get your mind off the anxiety.

How about this to get some feel-good feelings:

Go to a calendar and count out loud each day you've not smoked. Take your time and really think about all those days. All that money saved. All that life saved. That monkey's off your back now. And he will try anything to get you to put him back on. Do not let him win!!!!

One day at a time. Just get through today.

Then don't, take time for yourself go to bed and bring in a good book to read and let them battle it out. So glad to hear that you have not smoked, proud of you
