24 hours smoke free. Finally got through all the excuses and took control. I did buy some nicotine gum. 4 pieces yesterday.
Its strange when smoking is such a part of your life:
- When you are stressed
- When you work
- when you hurt
- when you need to think
- when you fear
- when you succeed
- when you fail
- when you have fun
- when you are miserable
Smoking runs through everything like that, at least for me. So its a major change. At times in the last 24 hours, I just don't know what to do with my hands or my thoughts, when I can't pick up a cancer stick to consider them.
But its working. I feel better, more in control of me, of something I can control rather than trying to control all the things I can't.
Benefits I can see I am healthier and I save a ton of money. Benefits I can't see. I have taken action on an addiction in my life, and am doing something about it.
