My dirty little secret

Stress. I've been under a lot of it. Our basement is going into it's 5th month of renovation, then there was last month's relationship problems, dog worries, and to top it all off, I went off Lexapro. (Bad timing on that one.)

I can now safely confess, last month I cracked. The night before my French bulldog, Norman, was to have his surgery, I had a cigarette...ok, 2 cigarettes.

From there, it was all downhill. It only took a couple of days to be back to being a full-fledged smoker.

After being smoke-free for 2 years & 7 months, it was one of the dumbest things I've ever done. I noticed a major change in my health, and the smell is as bad as it ever was.

I told myself that I would quit when the construction was done, but I changed my mind...in a good way.

I hauled my ass to Costco for the nicotine patch, and as of today,
I am a non-smoker.

Good for you, Lizzy. The only thing that matters is that you quit again.

Bad, getting back on the tobacco, but GOOD getting back off it as quickly as you did. Take care!!
