Oh, Tee, I just read your most recent journal and sorry your daughter still in active use. When I was 28, I was in a behavioral unit a short while and met a woman who was addicted to heroin/coke...speedballs, I believe they're called. Oh brother, I thought I could *save* this girl, but never doing anything like that myself or ever being around it, I didn't realize she was using straight out of rehab. I was so dumb about the marks on the backs of her hands. I managed a year with this girl until I simply couldn't take the stress and worry anymore (or her showing up at my work filthy from being on the streets). So that was just a *friend* so I can just imagine how worrying it is when it's your own child. My heart goes out to you. Warm Hugs.
Thank you for everything! Thanks for thinking of me, Tee. Things are just terrible actually. Nothing has changed and I'm home alone all day then all night so very lonely. I hope life is improving for you. Take good care of You! ♥
Hey there, just saw your last journal entry on my Home page. I went thru terrible hot flashes at first, too. Still have them, I Am 51, so normal I guess, but nothing like when I first quit. I was also very wired at first due to the increase in oxygen. I've seen others speak of dreams when using any kind of NRT so all normal. Congrats on Day12. Well done!
Great job, Tee! Hey, honey, I copied and pasted a couple comments from Joel off of whyquit.com which is a website many of us on the smoking forum (original one) have found helpful. The journal is titled "whyquit.com Comments from Joel." They address the thoughts about smoking as well as the anger and frustration we USED TO (wink wink) bury by smoking. Day 4 for you already! Proud of you for taking care of You!!
