“Sexy Underpants Man” has been with me, my silent partner, since December 31st, 2013 when I made the decision to quit smoking, and foil the plans of the insidious “Doctor Nicotine”.
It is now March 14th – and 73 days later and I feel I’ve turned the corner. BUT, here’s the thing. “Doctor Nicotine” has been relentless in his desperation to keep me under his control, and I have to say, at some level he has still got me, if only just a little. I am presented with an opportunity to smoke every day and sometimes, for that split second, I consider it, that’s how powerful he is… But I’m lucky, because no matter where I am, no matter how low I feel, “Sexy Underpants Man” is there beside me!
Do I fight a daily struggle not to smoke? No, it’s not really that hard anymore, but it is still there! 73 days later and I still want to smoke!
I don’t do it.
I have never succumbed to it.
Update on the weight. I haven’t reached my goal of 145lbs, I managed to make it to 140, but now I’m stuck at 135. I still have a little work to do, but I’m 10lbs heavier and maintaining that, so that’s amazing!
