A couple months ago, ahem eternity, *facial grimace, I decided I was going to give up the diet pop…well, actually pop in general and more specifically, fake sugar. I fear that the fake sugar, carbonation and whatever else is in pop is not doing me any good. It was horrible. My name is Nina and I am an addict. I had the typical addict cravings but each time I just said no. I replaced my pop consumption with bottled water. I noticed a couple of days ago and again just now (which inspired me to share) that cold water smoothly slides down my throat and feels good. I don’t get the same feeling from a glass of water with ice…once I started focusing on the soft, smooth feel of it trickling down my throat, I started enjoying it….it’s taken me a couple of months to get here…unlike
August was the 14 year mark since I have smoked cigarettes. I have no idea how I really quit other than something was more important to me that my 2 pack a day puffing. But the horrible fact of the matter, I occasionally still have a strong desire to smoke. Mostly when I think of relaxing…case in point, driving down the street in Siesta Key, Florida, I glanced up at balconies on condos and thought – that would be awesome to sit out there on a cool night watching the sunset and smoking a cigarette……WHAT? WHY DO I KEEP HAVING THESE THOUGHTS.
That’s my sharing for the day.
Until next time….
