Good day to you all! This is my very first post of 2019! Yayyy! I have some exciting news, that I can not wait to share! I have finally decided to commit to facing my fears one goal at a time!
I am so proud to announce that today is my 30 day milestone of being Smoke-free! So many things have changed with my body mentally, spiritually, and physically! This has been an absolutely extraordinary journey for me.
A few things I noticed about myself immediately is:
Skin – My skin became so much clearer. Having eczema I was constantly using skin cream to keep my breakouts at bay. Once I tossed the habit for good I recognized the difference.
Time – OMG! I have so much time on my hands, I have to think of things to do to keep my mind off smoking. I definitely have to keep myself occupied because it is an everyday struggle.
Energy – This was a drag at first. It was times I did not want to even get out the bed. As I tackled one day at a time, things became a bit easier. Now, my day starts early in the morning about 5-6 a.m.
Eating – I think about food so much now. I am not a breakfast eater but I have to eat something. My meals are a little heavier it seems so I have to be careful and stick to the gym!
Patience – I have none! I can be very short with my husband and kids. That is something I also need to work on. Sometimes I feel like my husband do stupid shit on purpose, just to get a reaction out of me. That is a whole story! He has stopped smoking as well and has different ways of coping which is the complete opposite.
I work very hard everyday not to smoke. I really don’t miss smoking at all. I believe it is only a mind thing. Although, I can say from experience that it’s easier said than done! Remember never give up on yourself, no matter how hard things may seem! What your perception is, may not be your actual reality.
Please stay tuned! I will also be posting my next goal soon: Going Back to school!
