Me Time, Revisited

Friday nights seem to be the last hold out that are still kind of tough for me to not smoke. Just like last Friday night, I have a hard time realizing that even though it's the weekend and, therefore, "me time," that no longer includes being allowed to suck on poison. It's not impossibly horrible, so the Chantix is still doing its thing, and I'm still sticking to cooperating, but it is noticeably tougher than other nights - probably all in the mindset. The good news is that in the middle of our Ugly Betty marathon (I've seen them all, consider a favorite show for a million reasons, finally convinced Tom to watch them all, too, and in less than a week we're almost done with the first season so that I can get all jaw dropping about the finale again and wish it was time for fall and season 2), Tom took a break, and I took a little nap. Zero urges or cravings while napping... I'm adding naps to my list of things to do instead of smoking, but at work I probably have to stick with things like the drinking water and breathing ways of coping.

Some more good news: no nausea from the Chantix tonight, and I woke up from my nap feeling better and back to not really wanting to smoke, just really wanting to watch our last two episodes of Ugly Betty (have I mentioned that I love that show?) and then more Kyle XY (also have watched from start all the way up to current since just before quitting smoking - been a busy girl).


  1. I watched a couple episodes of Ugly Betty and it definetly seems like a show I would like. I will have to rent it when it comes out on DVD.

    My first Saturday morning has proved pretty tough for me.

  2. Weekends can be a different kind of challenge, and for me they are still tougher. Still, I think it's easier than last weekend, so it gets better. Hang in there!
