I know what you are going through. A year and a half ago I was
hospitalized for Pancreatitis, and my liver was shutting down. I was on the verge of
dying from Alcoholism. After 8 days in the hospital and tubes coming out of
every area in my body I was told that I could never drink again. I was so bad
durring my drinking time that I couldn't walk down stairs, I litterally had to
go down on my butt, So to be able to sit there and not have the shakes was a
gigantic monkey off my back.
I also was a smoker, and in the time that I was in Rehab, I put
myself in outpatient rehab, even though I am and have been resolt on never
touching alcohol again, I wanted to have information on how to live a productive
life without it. I was told on a regular basis that I needed to quit smoking. I
felt I have given up enough, that I needed one joy. Well fast forward to
now. I quit caffine-worst headaches EVER. Do not do this unless you enjoy head
splitting headaches, and now I quit smoking. it has been 3 months and boy oh
boy I still have awesome urges to smoke, but everyday gets a little better, I
used the patches for 2 months and they did help curb, now my worry is eating
too much LOL. I swear you can't win LOL. I wish you all the best, I suggest
that you try the patches!! I know it is hard, but think of your daughter who
loves you, that should help the urge, cause she wants you to LIVE!!
Best of Luck!!!=o)

HANG IN THERE- keep your purpose as to why it is so important to quit
smoking- you finally have the life you want and deserve to live it without
being on an oxygen tank. pablos grandma lived on an oxygen tank the last
years of her life bc of emphysema.
ademas, be compassionate with yourself, a lot of anger will come up now
because everytime you had a cigarette you pushed that anger down for YEARS
AND YEARS, so maybe you can look into releasing ways. quien sabe, you need
to figure it out for yourself but it is soooooo worth it.
My friend Diana came the other day. She was so anti-smoking that when she
left it was all I could to to not look for a cigarette.
I am taking 15 pills a day to stop smoking. My husband finds me lunar. I am
floating in the air. We think I should stop taking so many pills but we
don´t know how to do it.
