Hi honey, I'm home!

I noticed email sent at the old one was returned.  I'll get with Sparky and add your new one to my list.  That way I can forward you all the disgusting and revolting email my coworkers send to me!

I slipped.....and I'm starting over...

Good for you!  I also notice my cravings increase in the evening hours when I was used to relaxing with a cigarette in hand.  I'm still searching for ways to stay busy.  I have been reading some.  Last night I went to bed at 7:30 and slept until 5 this morning.  I think I needed the rest.  I feel so refreshed this morning.  I live so far from town that by the time I get home from work, dinner, etc.   I have no desire to drive back into town for any activity.  Need to think of things to do around the house...there's plenty I need to do, but I need to find something I want to do.  Ideas?  Glad you're hanging with us GP!

going .. going ...

Hi lil!  Sounds like a rough night.  I was holding my breath while I read your post and was able to sigh in relief when I got to your last few sentences.  Sounds like you recognise and acknowledge those stressors and see them for just what they are---fuel for junkie thinking. You sound pretty normal to me.  In fact, you put into words the exact same thoughts that run through my head several times a day....  Keep strong.  It'll get better.

HELP! I'M ABOUT TO SNAP!

Where I have I been?  Took a few minutes from work to check in and saw this.....Okay, make sure you log back in and assure us that all is well.  That week under your belt is much to precious to throw away now.  Deep breathing:
In through your nose; out through your pursed lips......  Keep it up....

HELP! I'M ABOUT TO SNAP!

Whew!  See...you pulled through nicely and smoke-free.  When you talk about your assitant I always think of the Microsoft Office Assistant (you know, the little annoying paperclip that pops up and tells you what to do...)  Don't ya wish there were a button you could push to get rid of the real assistant as easily?  Plug some earphones into an ipod and listen to some soothing music for a brief break from reality.  I keep a screen saver of a beach sceen and tune into some relaxation music that has the sound of waves breaking in the background.  Dim the lights and go on a vacation for about ten minutes!

And if squeezing the ball doesn't relieve the tension, you can throw the damn thing at your assistant!

Anyone have a hammock?

I am so there!!!!  Count me in.  Matter of fact I hired a lovely little reggae band from Jamaica to play music for our little vacation.  No, no, mon, none of the wisdom weed for us---we're all non-smokers!

Some Good News....Thought I'd share

Bless you, Mr. Q.  Good thing you quit smoking.  I also have damaged my lungs.  In 2006 I was told I was in the beginning stages of COPD.  I quit, but then started back.  Ended up recently in the hospital with O2 up my nose.  My lung function really sucks.  Hence, this quit.  I smoked 2+ packs a day for 36 years.  Quit smoking now and never, ever, ever go back.  The tissue you have already destroyed will never regenerate, but you can improve your lung function considerably by staying smoke free.  Congrats on 86 days and wishing you a long life of a smoke-free and healthy lifestyle!
