1 Week Down...A Whole Lot More to GO!!

Update - tomorrow, January 8th will be 7 whole days.  1 WEEK!  It doesn't feel like its been a week, its feels like its been 2 or 3 days since I last smoked.  The cravings are really only bad for me after I eat, when I'm bored, or right after Drew goes to bed.  Those were always my "scheduled" smoke breaks (other than the being bored one).  Other than that, I'm fine during the day.  I have to admit, I thought that this time around would be much harder since I didn't have the motivation behind quitting like I did the last time (when I was pregnant and for my own sanity, HAD to quit - failure was not an option).

Tony is doing well, hes had a few hiccups, but overall he is doing awesome in my opinion.  He can't wear the patch at night because it keeps him from sleeping well, so his cravings are pretty bad in the mornings, but hes suffering with the same "schedule" smoke cravings as I am.  I think he is making it much easier for me this time because we are doing this together - I don't have to smell his smoky clothing, etc and try not to indulge - which was the hardest part for me last time.

I am proud of both of us for this accomplishment.  I know one week isn't a huge milestone, but the fact that we were both dedicated to our efforts for an entire week says a ton for me (and him).  WE CAN DO THIS!
