I'm exactly seven days in now. Single, broke mom and full time student. 34. It's hard at times because I am so isolated by my situation and smoking was the only thing that kept me from realizing how alone I am. I love my little girl and I did it for her as well as myself. Staying positive most days, but stress keeps mounting. I know smoking wouldn't help. Just feeling the withdrawals and the loss.... but I don't forget the gains!
