Made it threw a stressful situation!!!!

Why I let a man get to me and almost give up my quit! But this time I managed to overcome it and not smoke! I felt pretty darn proud of myself too!

First he got on my nerves, guess that's why I haven't married in almost 9 years of being divorced and don't think I will again, hee hee! But he seems to push my buttons and make my anxiety go threw the roof but I thought, ok Michelle he is not worth you blowing your quit as he was the reason for Saturday night but not this time.

Then my youngest child fixing to graduate decides that she is going to an after school class cause the teacher made her mad...hmmm my boss makes me mad but shoot I have to go to work to pay the bills!

So between the both of the situations I was ready to throw in the towel, but instead, I gathered myself, got my shorts and tennis shoes on and jumped on the treadmill for 30 mins again. Did some walking and then some running and felt totally better when I got off! Made supper another good healthy supper and went outside and watered the garden! Then I planted myself on my bed and watched TV!

So, slowly but surely I will learn how to deal with stressful situations and not give in the evil cigs!

Michelle ,

I am so proud of you:D

what a real test that was and to not smoke -go out and get exercise .

you overcame the huge urge -and when I read posts like yours it so, so helps me. thanks hun. keep going and thank you.xx


Dealing with stress 'normally' is a valuable lesson, and makes you realise that in reality stress happens anyway, its part of modern life even though we wish it wasn't so. So smoking would not have helped the stress, it just masks it a a bit and the you end up stressed AND a smoker too.

Keep that stress managed, you'll do just fine.
