You betcha .. I'm a quitter ... and while most of the time this isn't a title I like to express ... this kind of quitting is something that I am VERY PROUD OF!
I can't tell you exactly how many days but it's been at least 3 weeks give a day or two, that I have given up my dear cigarettes. They were dear to me too! You see .. I am a freak cuz I REALLY LIKE TO SMOKE! I like it after a meal, it's my crutch, it's my escape .... and while I think I am awfully considerate to others with regards to my habit .. the straw that broke that camels back was my girls ... when they begged me to stop, and reminded me how horrible of a habit it is, and how it's gonna kill me! Well when my 7 and 6 y/o girls put it that way .. what's a mama to do! They teach in school awfully early .. and thank goodness! This mama decided TO QUIT!
Yes ... while I was definantely "spoken" to by my girls .. I really was ready in more ways than one! I was feeling sluggish, coughing too much, headaches ... just not so good. AND SICK ... my goodness ... was I ever sick (and my latest illness was the jumping stone as it was a nasty chest cold and it hurt to try and smoke) ... so that's it! Let's see if this makes a difference!
I've been handling it pretty good .. yes I went thru SERIOUS BITCH stage .. YES BITCHIER THAN NORMAL TOJO! LOL My poor John having to deal with that! My cravings seem to come when certain thing happen ... which at this point leads to believe they were derived more from habit. I have moments when the habit tries to bite me ... but so far so good! I have been chatted thru some serious ones (thanks friends)!
For now .. day by day .. hour by hour ... minute by minute! I say goodbye to a long relied upon "friend" ... you are gonna be missed ... I hate to admit that but better to be honest about it!
On a positive, I am putting away some moula every two weeks .. and maybe I'll just have to treat myself to something pretty big! WINK! LOL
