Hubby is travelling this week. Have frozen pizza in the oven. No wine to night. My kitties will soon be asking for some one on one play time then off to read my book. TV is not really my thing although I am considering giving it a try again.

I'm relaxing...feet are cold resting my left leg which hasn't healed completely since last July!

I started my new diet today...kinda really hungry but eating healthier.I don't drink and I hate
Coffee Can I order a water or do you have a green tea? Where is the waiter? Seinfeld is on going
To see if I can go into a catatonic state of relaxation.

Mikey, this place is pretty new. It sounds like the service needs some work.

I'd say...I was afraid to ask for a menu.

Hope you all have a great day/evening/night/sleep!!!!

Well that day dragged a little 

 

Interesting news to see the UK government making it law for plain packages for the coffin nails. Not sure that would have made any difference in the slightest when I was smoking but they seem to think it will save lots of lives

I think required membership of this board would save a damn site more lives

That's a great package.  I know at some point, it may not have deterred me.. but thankfully - it does now!! There was a time when that ash-trey of buds may have tempted me too.. but I'm glad that at this point, it just made my nose hurt.  I hope my quit continues to be as such.. but I am arming up, staying close to the boards, and reading up on these things. Thanks for sharing that news, Nelski!! xo

You are doing everything right steph and I know your quit will be successful because of this. It feels like a full time job to start doesn't it but you know its worth every bit of effort as those weeks and months start to stack up

Ahh wow!! I sure hope so. I have relapsed several times lol more than I ever imagined!! It's crazy.. but yes.. I don't want to turn back. I really don't.

And I was wondering about those tickers. I don't know how to program one, for myself. Any pointers?

 

Plus.. I'm hoping to get more momentum about me, before I added one.. and I'm starting to feel it now.  I sure hope so!!

 

And um.. oh yea! Each time I relapsed actually helped me succeed !! I'm amazed at how much I learned, during each failed attempt. I only say that to hopefully maybe encourage someone else, that may read this also. 

Nelski - I really appreciate ya xo

 

I'm surprised at that technique.. but actually, your confidence in me - is actually helping me!! 

I didn't know that could/would happen. 

Everyones encouragement is really helpful to helping me avoid turning back around. It has actually pushed me through many craves.. Wow!! :) lol Cool !
