And the Journey Continues....

It's been 8 days since I've quit smoking. I've had one slip, but that seemed to be more of a defiant slip than a craving slip. I have had a few urges, but were easily worked through. This new drug, Chantix, is truly amazing!!
What surprised me was the times I thought I would struggle the most, haven't caused me any problems.
The other night though, I walked out with my husband after supper, and yea, I thought I'd have a drag. HA! That turned the tables on me!!! For the next half hour all I did was cough! It was such an irritating, tickling cough that I just couldn't shake. Let me tell you...that's enough to make me want to stay quit!!!
So, if you think of me, think encouraging thoughts and blow them on the wind to me!!
I WANT this to work.

As the Little Engine said, "I think I can, I think I can!!"
