Sophie and I went out for a walk tonight and ended up running back because of the lightening (I have this fear of being struck by lightening) and the storm blowing in. Once we were safe inside what did I do? Of course I went and grabbed my camera.
Tonight as Sophie and I were running back to our apartment I realized that just 3 days ago I probably wouldn't have been able to run as fast as I did. I still wasn't real fast, but I at least was able to run without running out of breathe.
It really is amazing what just 2 days of not smoking has done for the good. I am smelling things that I probably have not been smelling for years. I wonder if this is what pregnant women go through? Food is tasting so much better. If you have ever smoked pot you know that food always tastes sooo good after smoking a joint. Well, it's like I am discovering the new and wonderful taste of food. Even my salad at lunch tastes really good.
Now if I could just get over being so irritated and having no patience. I literally thought I was going to kill the guy in the office next to me today. All he was doing was using the vacuum, but it was driving me nuts. It seems that my hearing seems to be more sensitive as well. Is this normal???? Any loud noises just drive me crazy.
I am still working on realizing that life will still be fun as a non-smoker. When I think about things in the future, I get this panic feeling wondering how I will be since I will not be smoking. For example: usually I am thrilled that it's the weekend, but tonight I am thinking "what will I do this weekend?" It's not like all I did was smoke on the weekends, but it's so hard changing a huge part of my life. But like I tell my clients everyday, I am just going to take it one moment at a time.
And I appreciate all of you hanging in there while most of my posts are about quitting smoking. Hopefully I will soon be able to focus on something other then the fact that I am not smoking.
Hey, I just heard on the news that we are expecting snow this weekend? Yea, that could get my focus off of not smoking. :)
