Kayla Good for you for knowing that smoking won't change anything...even an ex who uses the court sytem to harrass. You don't have any control over other people's actions, only your own. You know that good parenting takes love and limits, so just keep doing it and she will settle down again. Those transitions are hard on both parents and kids. I'm really proud of you!

This post couldn't have come at a better time. I'm dealing with some issues that have sent me into a rage which is why I haven't posted in a few days, and haven't been pleasant to be around. I signed up for anger management to control this rage before the cuban temper gets the best of me and destroys my quit. Once again it's back to court over my daughter and I'm so tired of being broadsided every time he has a visitation with her. It's hard enough being a single mom to a 15 year old without her father not setting any boundaries or showing any responsibility. Anyway great bump and I'll be around just not posting much till I feel better. I'm still hanging in there.

Dennis, I have anger issues as well. I'm doing better now... somehow, though I think it's just by chance and that it's something that began working itself out on its own. (plus some of my health related meds have changed and that probably has a lot to do with it) I've also been thinking of ways to cope with it. For starters - guilt can be a good thing in that it lets you know that you're human, but try not to dwell on it because it will only fester and cause the same to happen again. Also - if you have any health problems that require meds - make sure they aren't helping this along. For instance, I was taking a sleeping pill that is known to cause hormonal fluctuations (Rozeram(sp?)) and though it made me sleep, I spent the entire next day the most agressive SOB on earth! If there isn't anything you know of, then maybe a check up and blood panel are in order? Now that I have my meds straightened out, i've been trying to recognize triggers and feelings. I've only been at this a few days but so far it seems to be related to fear, and feeling helpless. Tonight I got a bit pissy towards my family after my daughter told me that the school did something to her that I felt was very very wrong. I left the situation with my family, and wrote a letter to the principal, and am now hanging out here until I feel better. My head hurts now, but I am calmer. Next time I will try to remove myself before I start getting pissy. I didn't let it escalate this time to an outburst, and i'm calling it a victory overall.

Great post Martha. I've been at this quit for a long time now almost a year and been through the ringer more than once. Lately the anger has been conming out and I think its time to go back to my specialist in addictions who seemed to be able to make it all make sense and instill a little clam and confidence to my shaken ego. Your post has reminded me that there is a solution to my outburst and my wife and I both thank you for being thoughtful enough to post this quote. Any other thoughts would be muchly appreciated. Yours in being smoke free. Dennis :)
Way to go tryagain!! You're doing great...almost a year. I guess one does get over the resentment...it just takes time.

    Cigarettes Not Smoked

Believe it or not, I still have not had a cigarette. Almost a year now. Not long ago a friend that I have not seen in years dropped by. He quit smoking 2-1/2 years ago. He's just like me. He still wants to smoke and still has the craving. I'm not going to say daily cravings because there isn't a day where it goes away. There still isn't a time when I can honestly say I didn't think about it. I am too tired anymore to be filled with rage and resentment. It was nice to see someone like me who still wasn't smoking after more than two years.
