Day 20 ...I do not smoke, therefore I am

Thank you all for your support yesterday...it was really helpful.

Just a bad day. And its nothing to do with smoking really. As if that would help. NO, it wouldn't.

I went to a philosophy class once and remember one question...who are we?

Are we our body, or our feelings or our thoughts? We can monitor all of those things so we are not any of them.

We are not our thoughts because "I" am aware of my thoughts...so..... when my thoughts want to smoke "I" can override that because "I" am in control! I do not have to listen to my thoughts.

Think I've had too many mini chocolate rolls!

Anyway feeling so much better today!!

Lots of Love X

Erm, hang on a mo Lizzie, just trying to get my head around this. If I am not my body, feelings and thoughts, then what am I, do I exist and if I do, what is this place:eek: Ooher, I hope you come off those chocolate rolls soon:confused: Feel a bit funny now so going to make some toast, prob is, who or what is going to eat it??

Send the funny farm peeps round to mine asap.
