I think I stand corrected, a slip is NOT OK. Tough love, but I think Storm is more correct than my newbie perspective. Either way, it's done, move forward knowing people care.

A Busy Day Planned

October 22, 2014

Today is day 6, #5 was a bit tough, but this morning I feel all powerful.  My newfound Ex family is significantly responsible for helping me see and feel the freedom so clearly. I'm still waking up with a nasty taste in my mouth and craving that morning cigg with my coffee. The craving was much less this morning.

Four hundred eighty-nine days, it seems kind of crazy. I remember day 1 thinking how in the world will I ever make it to no man's land, let alone past it?

day 18 - had a slip

Bowled well tonight!

Yay!  I bowled "good" (better than the guys!) and we won three games. A couple of folks came in smelling like smoke. Was nice to know I didn't. :-). Blessings. One day at a time. ❤
