That certainly sounds tough to deal with Steely but I'm glad you made it through smoke-free..

Yep, I did Red.

If I'd acted on the urge I would feel worse than I do already. It's the only thing that prevented me.

Tomorrow would arrive and I'd have to write Day 1 in my column. Or would probably have continued to smoke.

Chchchchchchanges!

I'm so sorry about your daughter, Steely. Please hang in there and don't smoke. Yesterday something happened and crushed me. I'm literally swollen from all the crying.

Day 1. You're right, it only feels worse.

Keep it going, Steely. You've made it past the hard part.

Your daughter's problems are not your fault. You know it's no one's fault. I hope she reaches the compliance stage sooner rather than later.

Klio, sorry about the tears.

Steely, please keep going. 🙏 I'm sorry, I feel like I let both of us down. It was one painful lapse. I'm back, not starting up smoking again.

You haven't let us down Klio. It's a really difficult habit to quit, particularly when under pressure.

We started this journey together, but alone Klio. And we never surrender.

A lapse, not a relapse Klio.

Onwards we push. 💪💞😎

Your post helped me a lot Bimini. ❤️

So afraid today she might harm herself. But I don't have any control over that either.

She improves rapidly following medication. Next week, I hope.

There are protocols (civil rights) that the hospital has to follow.... a good thing, I know. But in the meantime .....

Thanks Bimini.

Day 22

We both know it's not really about the numbers Klio. It's about not smoking today, and a desire to keep it that way. 🤓

Hope to see you here today my friend. 💞

I really crave the sun lately. Usually, the sitting area in our yard gets full shade in the afternoon and through the evening, and it always bothered me. Today, I dragged the chair out into a different corner of the yard, where I could feel the warm sun rays and watch the sunset in serenity. This sunny corner was always here, why did I never see it before?

'Tis better to crave the sun,
than to crave the smoke
of rancid lung.

Help, I've lost my mind. 😜

2681 no chew QLAMFEDD. More tobacco does no more good then more alcohol. All you accomplish is you get to start all over with day ONE. I was determined with tobacco and I'm determined with alcohol to never have another day one.
