Tomorrow I'm going to be 60 days smoke free. I must say I am humbly proud that I've managed to stay off the puffs and any form of nicotene. As for eating, that is another topic altogether. I need comfort food now and again. I also need comfort in general but I guess that is a basic human need which I somehow tied to smoking in the past. Recently I've managed to hold back the weight gain a bit by eating things that don't blow me up. That way I can eat more and am actually eating less if you know what I mean. Of course I'm not perfect and I drank too much beer on Friday but am glad to say I did not light up. I did open the door of the smoking room in the pub to speak to someone and am glad to say I closed it again. LOL!
My wife still smokes on the patio and together with her female friends they litter the area with smoke and ash trays. I can't really say anything much because to do so would make me a hypocrite, since I was doing that too not so long ago. Its easy to forgive her and her friends because I am not jealous they are smoking and feel sorry for them.
My daughter made a joke when I complained about the smokers, saying that its payback time for me!! I know that secretly my daughter is really happy that I've quit. She used to ask me to quit so many times in the past but she has not done recently because I figured that she gave up all hope.
I'm going to slow bike for a while after I get off this blog. I'm going to buy an isotonic lemon drink and enjoy sipping it every 10 minutes of light exercise.
Just like you all, I'm going to learn to live without cigarettes and get used to doing other things in the place of sucking on an awful hot burning tobacco filled paper cylinder. I need to unlearn one day at a time. I know that some people have said its real easy and they don't think about ciggies anymore but for me I think I need to work at continually de-programming myself to ensure that my foundation gets stronger as time goes by.
I want my wife to quit but I'm not going to use the fact that she still smokes as a reason to interfere with my own quit!
