Last week, I wrote a blog post and lost the whole lot, which was really annoying as part of the reason that I am doing this is to chart my progress and to be able to look back and see how far I have come. Anyway, no matter as the progress continues.
I am now in Week 17 and I am so chuffed and pleased with myself.
I am no longer go outside to smoke when at work but I do go out anyway, to stretch my legs. I also take a book with me if it is during lunch and have taken to walking down the road and back up again while reading my book. It must look a bit odd but I don't really care. I always have my e-stick with me but don't always feel the need to use it. I think part of me is rebelling against the organisation I work for, because they love to see people tied to their desks and locked into staring at a computer screen and another part of me is looking for a replacement for the e-stick. I feel blessed that it has helped me to give up smoking but I would like a time to come where I don't feel that I need it anymore.
In my head, I think I am constantly looking for a way to really detach myself from this need that smoking once filled. Well they say that it takes 21 days for a new habit to form and as I clearly have some space to fill I guess I will look at what I can do to fill that space. A positive habit, of course. At the moment it is reading a book which interestingly is called, Straight and Crooked Thinking and there is definitely an awful lot of thinking going on which brings me to a close for this particular blog, as my thinking and typing could go on and on and on, right now...............
