I’ve decided to try something different. I always thought of quitting as such a difficult and negative process. Well, who would want to do that when you’re constantly thinking of it in such a hateful way? So I’ve decided to think of it in a positive manner. I mean, after all, it’s a good thing I’m quitting right?
So, courtesy of Sitting Bull’s post, I’m going to slowly quit, by weaning myself down and concentrating on quitting like a habit. Every day I am going to cut myself down by one cigarette. Today I am going to use as a counting day, to see how many I smoke to use that as a gauge.
Here an update on other stuff as well. My house is still in shambles, but its finally moving along. The majority of our top cabinets are installed, and 90% of the painting is complete. It’s sad to say, but I’ve become adjusted to living like this: using one room as the playroom/kitchen/living room, and our bedrooms being for sleep/storage. The good news is that our new wood laminate floors are going to begin being installed this week, as well as the rest of the cabinets.
I keep telling myself the insanity will be over soon, but it seems like it’s forever and a day away. This is part of the reason I am so reluctant to quit smoking right now. The above normal stress level from all of this and I feel like I’m destined to fail. However, with this new quit plan, I feel less overwhelmed, like its doable, the quitting.
Here goes to day one, and counting!
