Week One...No Smoking!

Well, it's been a roller coaster of a week, let me tell you!

But, it's worth it. No smoking. After day 3, things just seemed to "chill out"!

I had really thought that I wouldn't make it. Seriously!

Now, it's been a week and I FEEL great! I can actually "taste" things. Not like before I quit smoking. Before I quit, things really kinda tasted the same, ya know?

Now, it's like, when I eat, I taste all the different spices used in the meal. The difference is un-real!

Not to mention that since I quit, I don't get up every morning coughing! I have more energy than I have had in a long, long time. And my skin doesn't look as bad as before.

And, to date, I have saved $42 bucks! Of course, my baby tells me not to think about the money, just what a difference it's made in my health, already.

Along with no smoking, I have replaced my main meals, with Lean Cuisine! Instead of chips, I bought apples, oranges, grapes and salad mixers. I've replaced sodas with Sugar Free flavored water and tea. (I still drink 1 soda a day, at lunch). I've replaced the sugar with Splenda and I use more pepper on regular foods, keeps me from eating all of it that way!

One week ago I could barely walk around the yard without loosing my breath, now, I can. I am sleeping better at night, and I don't feel so depressed. Depressed, yes, I no longer feel depressed! Amazing the side effects smoking has on someone!

Now, on to Week two!

I quit two years ago, and have never been happier! I couldn't do it cold turkey, but Chantix worked for me.

My daughter would tell you she never thought she would see the day I would quit! So, If I can do it so can you.

Hang in there!!!!
