if you get a chance, treat yourself to a little something special today....anything that will make you smile...a CD, a book, a few fresh flowers, a plant, a new bottle of nail color....anything.

this feeling will pass, but in the meantime, there is no rule that says you can't treat yourself with something of beauty. Even a short walk can do wonders, especially in the spring which is full of the renewal of life. Listen to the birds, look for the new perrenials to poke their heads through the ground, listen to children laugh and remember that you too are healing as well and soon you will be feeling so much better.

The greatest gift you can give yourself is time...time to heal and time to adjust and time to realize that a whole new life is unfolding before your eyes....yours!

Wow...I really needed to read this today! There have been no specific triggers, just that "empty" feeling that my junkie thinks can be filled only with that killer drug, nicotine. I feel reassured knowing that I am still in the process of healing.

Thanks, Linda

I really needed to read this today. I found myself not only craving cigarettes, but overeating to compensate as well. Couldn't really figure out why I was doing this, but have been digging deep, journaling, and getting honest in order to stop this behavior. It was getting pretty depressing. How soon I forgot that this was junkie thinking? Gosh!

Woooh! What a day. Grumpy or what! I was to have the weekend to myself, hubby was heading to our cottage for the weekend. Lo and behold the weather forecast was pouring rain all weekend. He ended up coming back early this morning. So, needless to say I was Ms. Grouchy,Touchie, Out of My Face mood today. Did a lot of reading at FREEDOM. My quit had been relatively easy until this past week and I even went GREEN. Image Go figure. My patience level is very short right now. Image Been doing a lot of deep breathing. I keep telling myself this will pass. Oh, I even yelled out a good scream today. Image Never did that before! There was no one home luckily! One day at a time........Image Phew....NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF.
I needed a good ramble.

Thank you, her grumpiness, this is just what I needed today!!

While I am certainly less and less uncomfortable, I am not really more comfortable yet - you know?!

I continue ONE DAY AT A TIME - and have never faltered on my course to NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF - but do find myself growing impatient sometimes!!!! It is so reassuring to read about the experiences of others who have struggled through this "empty feeling" that has haunted me for the last few days.

Thankfully YQS,

Thanks for this thread...really needed to read this today. I've been on the rollercoaster since I got up this morning...

Took a look at the "savings jar" I started since I quit. I think there's enough in there for a little giftie-something this weekend...
