I am the essence of the serial quitter. But this time, I think it will stick.
Instead of being in it for the long haul. I am in it one day at a time.
It wasn't easy to quit. It never is. I ate a lot of greek yogurt those first few weeks. When I was feeling especially low, I would down a pint of ice cream. I had to take smoking as an option off the table. It doesn't mean I don't think about it, but it doesn't mean that I can divert, distract, and diffuse the craving--one at a time. I sometimes wish I didn't have the physical problems I do have, as without them I can get rid of the weight faster but that is okay for now. That too is one day at a time. But at least for today I am not smoking. I am sleeping better and believe it or not, people are treating me better because I don't smell like a dirty ashtray.
