2 days, without a single cigarette!!!! Woo Hoo! I tell you this is one of the hardest things I have done in a long time. My thoughts are scattered to the four winds, and I am unable to concentrate for long periods of time. I know however, that I can and will do this.
One of the few things that keeps pestering me more than anything is my unconscious habit of reaching for the pocket I kept my cigarettes in. It’s almost like I need the security of something in that dam pocket. So I stated carrying chewing gum in that pocket. You would be amazed at how much that little tiny detail seems to comfort my thoughts.
I am also eating everything in sight. If it’s not nailed down, it’s fair game as food or snack. Yesterday, I ate three packages of sunflower seeds, two bowls of soup four sandwiches, three hotdogs, two bags of potato chips, a whole lot of venison jerky, and six oranges. That’s not even counting my regular breakfast lunch and dinner. Thank god I have a high metabolism.
I just need to figure out how to settle my thoughts, and think along a straight line again.
