I Can't Believe I Forgot To Mention This!

Recommended Posts

Guest Robin Winter

I can't believe I didn't mention this in my last rant, but I guess it's a good thing that I'm to a point where it's not the foremost thought in my mind.

I finally quit smoking!!! And with all the nasty garbage going on in my life right now, I think it shows just how committed to quitting I really am, because I haven't touched a cigarette even once in the almost two months since I put them down.

I won't say it's been easy though. My wife still smokes, and half the people I work with smoke, so I get to smell it all day every day, but this time I think I really was ready, because even though I've had some physical withdrawal cravings, and still do, I haven't actually *wanted* one, and that's always where I got in trouble in the past.

On that note, for any of you who really want to quit but are having a really difficult time, I found some good pages that might help. They focus on killing the habit before actually stopping the smoking, which is supposed to be a much healthier way to do it and has a much higher success rate.

I'm fairly sure these people are selling a service, but they have free information available that might be just what you need for a foundation to quit. I found some of it was helpful for me.

Congratulations Shilo!

That is one of the hardest things anyone can ever do, so glad that you no longer want them.

Thanks for the helpful links as well.

You just keep going and you will be amazed where you will end up - hopefully where you were heading in the first place.

Love ya,

Sally

Excellent Shilo, and congrats girl. It is not easy for sure. You will have to treat yourself to something nice, now that you have some extra moola.

I quit in 96', after more than 2 decades of the Marlboro man.

Hugs

Wonderful news! Quitting a true addiction - nicotine - is terribly hard. I quit pipe smoking 29 years ago - and I still crave it after certain meals and when relaxing with friends that are smoking. Fortunately, not as many people my age smoke anymore.

GRAND!

      Hi, Although the basis of my meditation come from a book on Buddism the spiritual aspect of my life is based around being thankful for what I have and for the people I know and to participate with that which is around me the basis of which is understanding and practicing love. i like Buddism a lot but prefer if people use their own words when conveying something.  If I had the determination and attention span to read the Quoran and find a Master I would say I would align myself with Sufism but that's not going to happen so I have to be content being an Abrahamist with Big Book leanings. This is not my own words but sort of in fact. Love God (your version) and treat others with kindness and love:) The rest is commentary. Reading this made things easy for me. In light of the simplicity I feel that spirituality should not possess an inaccessible quality to it.  Why I like Sufism is the belief that "love is the highest station of the soul."

      Hi ,  thanks for the warm welcome

      Hi Gwen, thanks for the warm welcome. I do have a balanced life but it’s especially because it helps me to get through the dysphoric days. I try to work a lot and do relaxing things to be confronted less with the dysphoria.   I love Godiva chocolate. Lindt chocolate from Switzerland is not bad either but I prefer my Belgian chocolates. We have a Leonidas on every corner here. Do you have Leonidas chocolate in the USA?

      Thanks so much. Your message feels very welcoming  I don’t have a lot of  supportive people so thanks for offering me a place to share my feelings.

      AWW, I love that question, so sweet my dog is called “ Noisette “ which is French for “ walnut / nut “ . He is 4 years old, kinda small but very fat. His race is a mix of a mops and a bulldog.  I love him. He can be grumpy but he’s lovely

      The whole issue was not about the ability of trans to serve just like its not about the ability of immigrants to do good work. It is about Trump appeasing his base so that he can stay in power as long as possible so he can keep passing the things he really cares about and those are the things that make his money. It's a shame there are so many bigots in this country that is making it possible.

      Very well put. The journey for many is hard and long. Hopefully as time goes by it becomes easier for many.

      I would add Transgender Date to the list. While I am MTF the site does a good job of catering to everyone. They do a great job of breaking down the identities instead of just grouping everyone together. There is a vast community there so finding someone there is definitely a good chance of finding someone. There is also a lot of discussion on the site which is focused more on just dating. That may provide a good outlet for your friend as well.
