No Smoking Day

Slow, steady, with shield raised... smoking was so last month!

I think as of 1530h today, Rooooooooooooom Upgraaaaaaaaaaade! So I'm showing up a few hours early. Congrats to everyone not smoking today or making the decision to quit. Still on a bumpy road, but I am one twelfth of the way down it towards the penthouse. Hoping this stretch is a bit easier than the last. My anger is few and far between now. Craves are strongest at work still. I have made it through a few drinking nights with my smoking buddy, so that trigger is diminished now. Plagued by random sore throats, head-aches, an ever expanding belly, coughing up stuff randomly at inopportune times, dread and mourning. So, I am not fully sure things are getting better as of yet, but I am becoming more aware of what is going on and more practiced in saying NO. I will not smoke today. I will breathe for me.

I will not smoke today. This mantra has been keeping me strong. Bored, angry, depressed, saddened... Nothing is making me crack. I will go to sleep smoke free again tonight. Congratulations to everyone not smoking today... Good luck to the new quitters and good job to the ones still going. We are all awesome.
