Starting out and rewards

Posted in Getting started 11 Mar 2016

Whew, I've finally got started. The hardest part is getting started. We interpret smoking as a reward. It's just not! I'm making a list of things that I want, and each week / month I can take the earned reward. The big reward after one year will be better health and lower risk to health - perhaps I can train for that marathon I always fancied 😆

    Congratulations on getting started. You are right smoking is not a reward and I will never understand why I thought and used it as one. Keep us informed on how that marathon training is going because exercise certainly was a godsend for me and still is. Good luck

    Hey there friend. It's been a while since i've seen any posts or comments. I hope you are busy getting in shape for that marathon and that you have kept off the ciggy's to do so. I just wanted to let you know you are missed and i look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Hello Happiness

    Thanks for touching base with me. Took me a while to find where your message was linked (had deleted it from my phone). I have lost my way like a little lost lamb. I need to find a methodology that works for me - perhaps a psychiatrist, I don't know.
