Quit 10 days ago
I’m at work today it’s the second day of being smoke free. My manager knows I’m having a tough time with quitting smoking. He  said hey I don’t have a smoke for you but you can go do this instead and he laughed at me.. wtf ? Why would you do that. Just made things so much worse for me.

    Nobody's going to make it much easier for you for awhile. Things may be said that rub you the wrong way, rise above it and do this thing. Stay focused on not smoking and your reasons why, let the other stuff go. Compared to the demon you are taking down, all the rest is unimportant. Have an awesome weekend, keep smiling through the chaos girl!

    Katie,  you are able to take anything that anybody throws at you.  As Greg said rise above it and just turn a blind eye to anything your boss may say about your quit.  Remember you're in control here, not anyone else and so far you've fought off the nicodemon for 3 days, be proud of yourself and believe in the power that you have over anything else.  You're doing amazing, hugs, Lucille.

    Katie, you are doing amazing. You have worked very hard to reach this day. Keep moving forward and don't let anyone or anything discouraged you from staying smoke-free. You have 3 days smoke-free behind you, that is so wonderful. Congratulations and keep up the awesome work!
