Ok so it has been forever since I have Blogged....I find myself back at the smoking again I went from September 2007 until one month ago....So much has happened....I always go back to the one thing I think I can count on....the stress factor always when people in my life are messing up ...I fall everytime...I don't even know how to get back I have 7 days of Chantix...should I start back on it I took it for a few months and was able to wean myself off....I feel like such a failure....I'm taking medication to lose weight...and depression, thryoid, cholestrol and now do I put Chantix on top of doctor says it's ok...I'm to afraid to even all of you who are still making it....

8 weeks +

Hey Everyone....It's been a while since I have checked in.....Things are going ok....I have had a severe ear infection in both ears....I have never had ear infections in my life....I started playing in my mind it is because I quit smoking....boy that stinking thinking will sure try to get you when you are down...Yes I have been down for over a week...two antibiotics later and lots of prayer I'm starting to feel somewhat better...I have been having smoking dreams and craving cigarettes so bad...but I haven't given in...I refuse to be controlled by those nasty things anymore.....The meter reads 8 weeks+ that's awesome....but it hasn't been that easy as at the beginning, but I have cut back on the Chantix to the 1mg a day......hopefully I will be able to get off it soon....Getting ready for Thanksgiving as everyone else is....We sure have alot to be Thankful for this matter what our circumstances are, there is always something to be Thankful for.
God Bless you All

Almost a Month

Wow 3 weeks and 3 days that is almost a month...It's hard to believe.....Haven't blogged in awhile...thought I would sit down and put something on here....Just got home from a 10 shift...things have been going good...I'm loving these ten hours...more of the three days off...I went to my doctor the other day for the results of my blood work....My cholesterol is down some and my weight is down 7 pounds...are you getting...I have been munching like crazy....but since quitting smoking I have been walking more on the treadmill....when the ankle is I feel Happy....I made the big mistake of going to Wal-Mart the other day....I noticed they have Halloween candy every where...I did really good at not buying very much...but then as I was heading to the check-out there right in front of me were POPCORN BALLS!!! oh no not again...every year I buy them....I would like to say that I buy them to give out but that would be a lie...I had my oldest daughter with me and she just looked at me and smiled...go ahead mom it's only once a year....OH my Gosh I bought 2 then I get home and hide a box under my who am I hiding them from ...myself...I'm the only one that usually eats I keep one box in the kitchen...and here I go not just one but 2 or 3 in a setting...good thing they are only 100 calories....I guess I could have picked up worse habits...but once a year isn't bad right? I get home from work last night and there is only one left in the box of 20...I probably consumed at least 15 of I decide to have a late night snack ...after the one I find my self sneaking in the bedroom where my husband is soundly sleeping ....snoring :)....trying to feel in the dark for that other box of popcorn balls...walla I grabbed it and got out of there..and you know the rest....but enough of this...I'm so glad that it's popcorn balls I'm sneaking and not I have now finished my two popcorn balls and will go get ready for bed...Hopefully everyone will have a wonderful smoke-free day tomorrow
