Humbly Returning

November 30, 2010

I quit last year, Nov 27th.  I found a lot of strength and friendship here.  It is a wonderful site.  I was whole hogged about it.  Then life threw some boulders my way and I crumbled.  I went back to smoking in February.  Our family endured some extremely trying times with this economy.  We are back on our feet, I hope.  I am still without a computer most of the time, but I am smoke free since Nov. 1st, 2010.  I have gained about 20 pounds this last...

It's been 37 days 17 hours and some odd minutes and seconds since I last smoked.  I really feel alot stronger now and really like being a non-smoker.   It is striking all the firsts we have and how they present themselves as challenges.  My husband and I went snowmobiling yesterday.  55 miles in below 0 windchill.  It was weird walking out to my sled not smoking.  Waiting for hubby to start it, not smoking.  Got to the first stop and didn't rip my...

On Notice!

December 25, 2009

 I am putting everyone on notice.  If I make you a friend and you don't respond in three weeks I am going to delete you.  Not that I don't want to help you, but I have a life too.  And I know that this is difficult and I respect everyone who takes this on, But please don't  feel bad if I delete you and you are still going at this.  Let me know!  Love you all!

Life is life

December 25, 2009

It's what we make it for heavens sake.  There will always be someone who felt they were short changed.  I say lets move forward into this consciously.  Who will volunteer to think themselves into 2010?!  Lets' think positively and make our success!  Love you guys!

Time Goes By

December 21, 2009

I love not smoking!  25 days!  I can't believe it soon will be a month!!! I have never made it this far.  Not one puff.  That is the difference.  No more fooling myself that it won't hurt.  That was my downfall.  Even thinking about possibly smoking.  Some of my friends are cracking up.  They are thinking about smoking a lot and getting mad that they can't smoke.  That makes me sad.  One of my friends here blogged about looking...

Three Weeks Down!

December 18, 2009

I feel exponentially better in so many areas.  I cannot believe that there are even facets of my being and my personality I did not know existed.  I am not talking about screaming MIMI coming screaming out of the woodwork at my unsuspecting family either! The cravings are so mild I don't notice them.  I am waiting the big ones to come as I know they will, but it's nice not to have to deal with strong ones very often.  I am on my guard and will protect my quit with...

It Feels So Good!

December 13, 2009

Yesterday the guys in our quit smoking group (we all belong to the same snowmobile club as well as just being friends anyway) put in the rest of the trail signs and met at our house for chili.  When we all got together last week for the White Elephant party, everyone was tense.  I am so glad to say that everyone was relaxed and feeling good about not smoking!!!!  We had conversations flying everywhere about what we have and are experiencing physically, mentally, and emotionally...

Two Weeks And Not a Puff!

December 10, 2009

Yes!  Two whole weeks.  Straight through.  It feels so good!  I am so happy.  It has been so very hard sometimes, but my friends here have kept me thinking and laughing.  I do feel stronger.  I do have more energy.  I do have a lighter mood over all!  I think the poisons really cloud our brains more than we think.  I never knew I would feel this way two weeks ago when I started out.  I was panicked.  It has not been impossible. ...

Day 12

December 8, 2009

is winding down.  We are having a snow storm and my husband and his son are trying to take down our gazebo tent we put up on the deck every year.  It's funny watching them with all the snow on top and snowing to beat the band!!!!  I appreciate them.  I am feeling more comfortable with non smoking me.  I am glad I am not standing outside sucking on a cig.  I like not stinking, my teeth are getting whiter, I am feeling grounded.  I know the poison is leaving...
