Hey everyone, haven’t been on in a while life has gotten pretty crazy. Hope everyone is doing well. So, I’m about 5 months in and every day it seems to be getting more difficult. Obviously there is extra stress right now. I’m potentially getting laid off, there is very little chance for peace with the kids being home etc. So I’m sure that all this stress isn’t helping. However, I find myself...
Having a tough day. I had applied for a loan to consolidate some of my debt but it got declined. To top it off, having another argument with my fiancé. Having a bit of an urge to drive to the store and get a pack😔
Hey everyone! I notice that there are a number of people here, like me, who seem to be in that crucial first month of a quit. How is everybody doing? What are some positives you’re seeing? What are some of your struggles?
