10 days, 76 pennies, and still counting!

December 26th, 2011 at 04:00 am

10 days, 76 pennies, and counting. Yesterday held a bit of temptation as I went outside with my sisters a couple of times when they smoked. I couldn't stay out long because I was feeling a little stressed, a cigarette would have been awesome (for about 15 seconds) ,and they'd have given me one if I begged enough. I didn't cave, though. I went back inside and got busy doing something.

76 pennies are in the jar (it doesn't look like so many but trust me, it is), each one representing $1 I haven't spent on cigarettes.

Go, me. Smile

    Thanks, y'all! I really have been fighting thoughts of smoking today, for some reason. This is the first day since I quit that has really been much of a struggle. Why now?? I'm not sure but I think it's partly because work is so very stressful right now and my personal life is a bit stressful, too. Between the two I need 'comfort' and smoking is an old action of comfort for me.

    I haven't done it, though. I'm determined not to!

    Thanks for the continued support. Smile
