Big Step (taken with many baby steps!)

Tomorrow begins my first day as a non-smoker. You may have noticed I've changed my quit date. I will be still living with two smokers and I decided not to place the pressure on myself for my first day of quitting, so I postponed it for Monday, December 10th.
I'm hoping to have a good start to quitting because I will sleep for 7 hours and then my work day begins at 6:00 am and I won't be done till 9:00 pm, so that's 15 hours of being busy! So, if I combine my sleep & work hours, that's a total of 22 hours of being smoke free!! Yee-haw!!! Won't that be an awesome start!
I'm not oblivious to the fact that it's still going to be a bumpy ride! But I do have friends & family who are behind me, supporting me all the way!

"As a single footstep will not make a path on the
earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in
the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again
and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think
over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate
our lives."

- Henry David Thoreau

I was thinking of you today. I know it's your starting date and I'm wondering how you are doing. You can do this. No, sugar coating will be hard, but I know you are strong and will succeed. Love ya sis!

Oh and I LOVE that saying you put in your last entry's words are very true.
