I wish I could remember what I was thinking in this picture because from the look on my face it was something pretty serious and I seem to have so much confidence.
Thank you all for your encouraging comments about me quitting smoking. Today was a lot easier then yesterday, but I am still having major cravings for a cigarette. It doesn't seem as bad as yesterday so that is good. The evenings seem to be the hardest, but I am working hard at keeping myself busy during these hours.
One thing that I have noticed is how raw my emotions are. I am thinking about things that I have not thought about in a while and everything just seems so real and well, raw. There are certain things going on in my life that I know I need to change and it seemed a lot easier to ignore when I was smoking.
One of the things I have been thinking about is how I have allowed others to treat me. I truly believe that we show others how to treat us and it's hard accepting (and changing) the fact that I have allowed others to continue to walk over me.
I think quitting smoking is step one in regaining my confidence again.
Day 2 of Round 2 is almost done.
