I'm not sure I can keep the daily thing going...but for now. Day 7 begins. I went to a meeting last night. This was one in my home town, and I had not been there before. I found it and went in... It surprising how fast an hour goes by. I was absorbed in each story. It was the typical what I was like what happened and how I am now type thing. It could get really boring but it hasn't yet. My next step is to find a womens group. So that is what I am looking for now. The meetings help. When I came home from work I freaked out on my son. Yelling how he never follows through with anything and yada yada on and on. I realized what I was doing so I went on a walk. I came back and collected myself enough to get the kids and head to my moms and have dinner. I went to the meeting and came back with a full grateful heart. I believe in the last 6 years I forgot where I came from. I have seriously come a long way. I want to reach out and get a sponser and try to get out from underneath the cigarette issue. If it is in Gods plan (wich I think I am aligning with) I will do the footwork. Now that sounds a bit over zelous. So let me come back with. Just for today I will hit a meeting and not smoke. :) Just today no long term meeting every minute sponsor live and breathe AA thing. I am just going to a meeting today and thats it. I know I will be better off if I ease into this.
Ok long winded there NOw I am off to work. (URGGG driving without a ciggarette on the way to work double URGGGG) This too will pass.

**I also had my car detailed so it no longer smells lke smoke the BF paid for it ! :)
Love,
Jane

Just got back from a meeting. I took a 24 hour chip and a hug. Then proceeded to try to tell the group that I was there for quitting smoking. I ended up sounded like I was terminally unique and had no other problems. An old timer handed me a pamphlet about insisting that you have an alcohol problem to be there. THen everyone's shares turned in to how when they came to the rooms they didn't think they had a problem. It probably was what I needed to hear. But it made me laugh. Because in all my cigarette induced fog I just sounded like an idiot. All I wanted to say was that I didn't want any numbers for people who smoked. Wich I don't know why I thought that anyway. It's like my brain is on permanent "don't smoke" tape recorder so that is what comes out of my mouth as well. LOL! I am a dork. But all things aside I am glad I went and probably got brought down a few notches. Humbled. Now they all think that I am "unique" maybe I am.. and I am of good naturedness about it. I know I am 100% powerless over whats on my back right now. Thank God I have some place to go where everyone knows exactly how that feels. I'll take another 24 smoke free hours.
heart,
jane

Day 7 again. I am starting over but not from scratch. I am starting over with experience. Hope that doesn't work against me. I didn't start smoking a ton again, but a puff here and a puff there and eventually one a day or half a day. The bigger deal is that I try to hide it. I dont know what is with that behavior but it is sneaky s***. A subtle foe if you will. I didn't mean to start quitting again but I got dry socket after a tooth pulled. I see all the insanity seeping back into my life. Funny- maybe that I woudl say that about a cigarette when I have much bigger fish to fry. But again its sneaky and I dont know where one thing ends and the other begins. Just for today and the last 7 days i haven't smoked i have chewed a couple of pieces of nicontine gum. ya even with the dental stuff. I never said I was smart. I am struggling and have had terrible insomnia, but honestly I get insomnia anyways so it may or may not have anythign to do with the nicotine. Here we go again. Please god let it be the last time
