Day 2

I forgot how hard day 2 is when you quit smoking.

My emotions are all over the place. Last night when I was walking Sophie I just started crying. I wonder if this is what it's like when you are pregnant?

I am trying really hard not to eat more then normal because I don't want to gain any weight. But I still find myself snacking. I woke up last night at 4:30am and normally I would have a cigarette. Last night I had two pieces of pepperoni instead.

I have a horrible cough this time. I can feel the crud coming up out of my lungs. It is not fun or pleasant.

Thank you for all your encouraging words. They really do help and I often think of this quitting smoking as a race and all of you standing on the sidelines cheering me on. I really do have the best blogger friends and I am thankful for each of you.

At 2:30pm I will be with my sweetheart again. I am sure I will forget all about those damn cigarettes when I am in her arms again.

Going to be ok Caroline.....you CAN do it. Keep a container in the fridge with veggies cut up and ready for those munchie times. Also Quaker makes little packages of munchie things that only contain 90 calories per pack. Must be available there, you guys get all the good stuff before we, across the border, do.
