    Not sure I can handle this

    God!
    Or GAWD! LOL... that's my company's name... Gina's Affordable Web Design.

    Shit. I thought I was doing quite well.. with a few (more than usual) AF days... but my better half and me deciding to quit smoking TODAY, 2 HUGE long letters from his ex in the past 10 days, I'm not sure I can DO THIS!

    Dammit.
    I WANT to do everything at once, you know? No drink, no smoke, exercise (God knows I need it now), help HIM, feel confident myself.. etc...

    Dammit.
    I don't think I'm doing it.

    sunshine,

    It sounds like you're trying to do an awful lot at once. Hmmm a web designer. I just designed my site. I bet you're a pretty smart person. Can do it all? Try not to put too much pressure on yourself, ok? I love your company's name, too cute! Hang in there. I can chat, too, if you'd like.

    sunny it is tough to do it all at once i am quitting both nic and al at the same time aghhh! but i am on the patch and have gone 6 mos. af before so i thought i would give up both a whirl. it is tough though but the best thing to do is try to stay busy and maybe the gym will help with that dowtime where we all have the worst cravings. just my two cents for what its worth by the way on day 3 and have not hit the gym yet to be honest it is the toughest to fit into my schedule good luck keep shinin sunny

    Sunshine you are doing great under the circumstances. That is what we are like all or nothing principle! you are AL free that is all that matters right now you dont need to drink right now. Do some relaxation / meditation works a treat.

    You can handle it. The thing is do you want to place so much pressure on yourself?

    Quitting drinking and smoking works very well for many. I consider that 'all or nothing'. It is a lot of work and is exhausting to say the least.

    You can be supportive of your BF, but maybe he needs to address these emails from his ex on his own. I am not sure of the story there. But it really is up to him to deal with it.

    If you guys are quitting together; then all the better. Look at it as a positive!! Support, understanding - great!

    Starting an exercise regime can start off slow. When things come together and you feel stronger with the AF and not smoking; then you can progress.

    I guess what I am saying is that you don't need to conquer all of this in one day. You are setting yourself up for way too much stress and risk falling back into your old ways.

    You have all of my support Sunshine but, maybe it is just to much for to quite both at the same exact time... can you wait on the cigs and stay AF for a while....sounds like there to many things going on at once...

    GG, I know how hard it is to do it all. al, exercise, smokes....I'd pick two and add another in a month. They are all worthy and I bet if you picked al and exercise, the smoking would happen easily. It can work, many have done it, so can you!!

    Great start! nat

    BTW, love your new signature, LMAO ....fat/lean
