One Thing I Have Learned

It is really, REALLY stupid to try and give up smoking AND soda AND any food that may be fattening on the same week that your *ahem* 'hormonal cycle' does it's thing.

Really, it is.

I have never felt more weepy/worthless/jittery/cranky/frustrated/angry/tired in my life. At least, if I did I have since blocked it from my memory.

I am hanging on, though. Mr. Barefoot is ready to leave me, and the kids run in fear whenever I peek my little nose out of the bedroom, but I am hanging on.

Maybe I will take up boozing to replace all the rest of my addictions, huh? *eyebrow waggle* At least then I wouldn't be fussing over this nasty crud I keep coughing up....

Better out than in Barefoot!

Oh, sweetie, that crud is just your lungs starting to repair themselves. Give them a chance!!

Deb said...

Hang on Barefoot! :) And since my biggest vice is boozing ;) I cannot condemn it as an alternative.

You are going to be just fine. Pick yourself up and come over and collect an award for you. Maybe it will cheer you up!

Oh BG!!!!! I'm sorry to hear you're having such a rough time of it. But, you're DOING GREAT!!! I mean, SERIOUSLY!!! And as somebody else said, that crud is coming out of lungs that are trying to get healthy again. My hubby coughed like that for almost a month after he quit, but he sounds SO much better now, not weezing when he exherts himself, not hacking every morning and coughing up crud on a daily basis.....

I don't know what it is to break through a nicotine addiction, but you've got my thoughts & prayers & best wishes.

OMG! It's been over a week now! Go Barefoot!!! Rah, rah, rah!!

Fr. Peter Doodes said...

I am getting worried Barefoot... where has the 'Quitmeter' gone?

Kati said...

Hey BG!!! I'm with Peter, hope the Quit-o-meter will be back soon, and that YOU're doing ok. (Ok, I hope hubby and kids are doing ok as well..... *wink*)

Wishing you a fantastic weekend and coming week.
