Hello all. Hope all is well with you. I wonder if any of you out there have experienced the following paradox:
While a smoker, I felt like a rat in a cage, knowing that I didn't have the time/money/energy/motivation to take my life to the next level. I knew I needed to quit to gain these things back!
Since quitting, I have indeed gotten my mojo back. However, at times, it is almost too much for me to handle. I am moving every second, feel like there is an overwhleming amount to do, not enough hours in a day. It's ironic, of course, because I am doing MORE than I was before (as a smoker), but now feel like a rat on a treadmill!
I'm a type A (as I suppose many smokers are) and I think one of the things I 'used' smoking for was to block some of the perfectionism, the constant feeling that I am falling behind.
Any comment welcome!
