Well im a wee bit wound up today!! just a little bouncing off the walls!  could it be .... "natural Dopamine"?  I can't quite believe it and I'm almost afraid to say anything but I so want to share this!  Since almost falling off the side of the cliff the other day I am doing great!  I'm having very few craves now. Honestly I was at the end of my own strength and I think the Good Lord did step in!!!!  This is such a crazy addiction!  The only crave I'm getting now is I think of having a cigarette to celebrate NOT wanting a cigarette!! Nutty!  Anyway you guys know I've been a little wobbly all along but things they are a changing. This girl is headed to TDC!  Thank you thank you everyone for your loving support!!! And I just want to say to any and all struggling today. Don't give up. Keep pushing through. We can DO this!!!  Yippie. Getting a real taste of the Freedom feels amazing!!!

Smoking to celebrate quitting? Oh, yes. Been there, thought that. Crazy! And I'm glad that you're seeing through the crazy, too.

You are right in the middle of NML ... so all the reactions you are describing are normal.  The trick is holding on to your quit .. as you start to understand that there will be good days and bad... with good days coming more often.  You also start to understand that you can get through the craves and this helps with the bad days come as you will know if you just glide through you will come out on the other side.

Keep adding the days ... one day at a time.

You are such a "babe"!  TDC for Ann...breaking on through to the other side, break on through, break on through....Remember the Doors singing that song?  They had you in mind Ann.

Congrats & it's good that you're not a spun monkey today huh?  lol

There are good days and bad days. Smoking will not make a bad day better or a good day better. Just get by one day at a time and remember "you don't have to do that any more". Just keep your eye on the prize. FREEDOM!

Ms.J_11-10-2013 836 days ago

Yes what IS a spun monkey. Or do we want to know??

Congratulations, Ann, so incredibly happy that you are feeling this "high"..it's amazing, you are definitely headed to TDC and each one of your days is making you stronger.

I'm not sure about the spun monkey either but I don't think I want to be one.

XOXOXO
