I’m up in the middle of the night again. I’ve been quit for 32 days. Could I still be having withdrawal symptoms?
I spent sometime yesterday walking at a new place Fernald Preserve. As I was walking I started o think about my quit in relation to the land I was walking upon Fernald was a Uranium Processing Facility for the United States Nuclear weapons program during the Cold War. It was closed in 1989 after 37 years of operation. 37 years of slowly… Show more

Jen, Congratulations, take a deep clean breath and celebrate. Unlike you I did get a a lot out of Mr. Carr's book, but not what was excepted I am sure. You see I got hope. I received the right to give myself permission to do what many in my family could not, I quit smoking. I was able to read the story of a man who walked away from a 5 pack…

I take deep breaths and tell my mind it's my body having another one of it's childish fits for taking away the cigarettes. This morning it was exceptionally hard. This is… Show more
