I haven't posted an update for a few days. My laptop basically
died...probably from passive smoking :eek: Good news: my boss
bought me a new laptop: my boss is awesome
So any updates I've made since the weekend have been mostly
aimed in the 'General' forum, trying to guess cryptic songs. I just
can't write much using my phone.
Therefore, please accept my apologies for not supporting your
quits this week as much as I'd wanted to...although I HAVE been
following them all...and you're ALL doing GREAT!!
Its funny. I'm a total newbie. Not only to quitting, but to this forum...
...and yet I feel like I've made so many friends here already!
I can't think of any other forum where like-minded folks would
embrace and readily commit to helping new members so
And it rubs off, doesn't it? I mean...
...my quit dramatically improved as soon as I stopped thinking
about "me me me me" and started caring about how YOUR quits
I've only been a member here for about 20 days, but I see a bunch
of new members joining every day who would KILL to be where
'I am' now. If that's YOU, my message is:
I'm not superhuman -- Far from it. I'm just determined.
I have no willpower -- So I use whatever means I have at my
disposal to stay quit. For me, that's NRT and you guys.
Yes, I have the odd craving -- Although much fewer than in the
first few days. I just try to keep myself busy and ride them out.
It’s not easy -- Overcoming drug addiction never is. Don't beat
yourself up about it. Because it does get EASIER.
If I can do this -- Believe me...YOU can do this!
I'm not promising to stay quit FOREVER, and I wouldn't necessarily
recommend you do either. Forever seems a long way ahead.
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time...
Try to convince yourself to stay quit TODAY...and promise to repeat
that statement tomorrow.
Enoughski. I'm starting to sound like Billy Graham, and no-one likes
a smart-a-r-s-e :eek:
