Keep on knitting...


Helps keep me from thinking about bad habits. This is the progress since yesterday...I have been knitting in between running errands(in MY car, since we never smoked in there, and I really want to stay away from anything that has to do with cigarettes...this is only the third day of quitting, and it is HARD...but I will not go back!!!)and will be knitting into the wee hours tonight, I feel sure...I have not been able to sleep very well, and boy will it be hard to get back to school on Monday!!! But, it will be sooo good to help with my NEW and improved self!!

I've been "nicotine-free" since December 22, 2003.

I "started quitting" probably 9 years ago when I found out I was pregnant. I "tried" to quit, but didn't really want to. My doctor and husband talked me down to smoking 4 a day, if I wasn't ready to stop. At the time, this was considered a "safe, if you 'had-to' amount"... Wow, that's complicated. Anyway...After 6 years of not smoking in the house, or at work, or in my car, I figured... there's no room in my life for this. I am done. Plus, cancer scares me. I don't want to die like that... Sorry, its just how I feel.

Anyway, days before the mildest winter we ever had, (meaning I could go outside and smoke without even getting cold) I decided I was done. I didn't need, want, or like it anymore. I didn't tell anyone, because quite frankly they were sick and tired of hearing me say I was done smoking, and did it cold turkey, on my own...

Best thing I have ever done for myself! Be greedy, do it for yourself and love yourself because you were greedy for you.


Hugs and high fives,
Michele

Keep up the good work on the quitting smoking! You can do it! I quit 4 years 2 months ago and it's SO worth the trouble. You will feel great, you won't smell, your house won't smell, your knitting won't smell. I don't know you other than your blog, but I am so proud of you!!! This is a big challenge, but you can do it. All my best wishes, KK!

Sis,
Can't wait to see more of this sweater! I wanna knit one of these hoodies too... I'm thinking brown tweed would be nice! Can't wait to nab the pattern from you! Hope school and the kicked habit aren't too stressful these days, love!
