Secret's Out!

So, it is exactly 7 days since I started the clock ticking for my secret.

7 days of bad tempers, bouts of weeping, snapping and insomnia.

These are depression symptoms, but what I did exacerbated them all to the max....!

At 10pm last Sunday, I stubbed out (hopefully) my last cigarette.



I didn't want anyone to know for the first week, because I knew I would probably fall off the wagon. The only people who knew were work (well, they had to because of the mood swings - and they would've noticed anyway!) and one blogger friend.

The clock will remain as a measure of my abstinence......

oh my god that so explains it all!

i also know how very hard this is... but so worth it. and very soon you will begin to feel all the benefits.
sleeping better. no hangovers (or a lot less at least), you'll be more supple and less stiff in the mornings and you'll be able to taste and smell and not feel guilty about yourself.
wonderful.
keep it up. we are all very proud of you. be proud of yourself. and take one day at a time.

brilliant sweets :)

Popping through for Click & Comment Monday.

Wishing you luck on the quitting smoking thing, too. I know how difficult it is to stop. One of these days I'll find my inspiration to do so.
