Huh, seriously ... who'd have thought that in just 3 1/2 months I'd be this ok without cigarettes. I do on occasion have the odd thought that I'll go smoke while my dinner is simmering or something but aside from that ... nupin'! Very odd ... even when I'm out, with a few beers in me, I'm alright. I made it through the First Ward St Patricks Day parade ... a WHOLE DAY built around drinking beer all day starting at around 10am. People smoking around me ... nope, I did it!

So May 3rd will be 4 months and I will be only a month away from claiming my dinner from Bob & Ralph ... Yahoo!

And you want to hear something crazy (and a little gross) .... I've not smoked approximately 2200 cigarettes ..... 2200!!!!!

Booooooring .......

So am I the most boring non-smoker you've met or what?!? i thought this blog was going to be chock full of posts for a long time! But no, here I am, 8 weeks later ... still not smoking .... still having weird dreams .... but with nothing else of note to talk about. I'm actually back up to where I was when I started but that's ok b/c I'm not tipping the scales 20lbs heavier, so that's good! And I still have strange thoughts of smoking still at times .... I had two in about 3 minutes the other day, it was odd!

So just about 2 months ... in three, I get dinner and I'll be able to really taste and enjoy it! The guys who promised me dinner keep telling me that they're taking me to either McDonalds or Burger King .... but I know they'll think of something slightly better .....

Thanks again to everyone for your love and support! It's really helped me tremendously through this (no so) difficult time!

As motivating as my quitmeter is ... 776 cigarettes not smoked, $203.70 (approx) saved ... yesterday was the kind of day where I missed smoking. Just because of the type of day it was ... I found myself wishing for one a number of times not for the nocotine but the routine of it. A day, cooped up inside, cooking, cleaning ... not smoking.

It definitely still hits me at odd times like that .... but 776 cigarettes not smoked, $203.70 saved

More dreams

I'm starting to get really annoyed with the dreams I have about smoking ... they're just freaky and I wake up feeling guilty even though I shouldn't

But on the upside ... we had our family reunion this past weekend and I found myself outside with my cousin, her husband and father while they were having a smoke .... at one point I found myself on the receiving end of a facefull of smoke and was ok with it.
