Hello, my dear friends:
Well, it's Sunday morning and I have been able to refrain from smoking thus far. I don't see myself smoking for the rest of this day or for many days to come, if possible. I watched my friend as she smoked and I didn't like the smell nor did I like the lingering odour of the cigarette in the air or even on my own clothes.
Your kind words and support have really kept me going because I can write this and know I am being honest and strong. Each and every hint was helpful to remember, if not to use.
I was particularly successful in remembering that I can have power over what my hands are doing.
And most importantly, I can come home from this weekend away and be truthful to my husband and 'smoking' sponsor, that I was smoke free.
