    Today is day 38, why is today so hard? I have taken a walk, shovelled snow. done dishes, working full time so can’t go to far, and I can’t stop thinking about it. Do I need to find new ways to distract myself? 
    I will fight it, I will try to keep busy, I WILL WIN!!

    Hi justmeagain,

    Congratulations on 38 days smoke free! Sorry to hear that you are struggling. Try not to be so hard on yourself. You are doing the best that you can, and you have some good, solid strategies in place to keep yourself distracted. Quitting smoking is a major life change and you are learning how to live your life without cigarettes. 

    You have shown incredible strength and commitment so far. Just think of how many cigarettes you have said NO to! You WILL WIN!!!

    Warm regards,
    Karen, Quit Coach
