    And I'm praying it's as peaceful and recharging as I really need it to be. Between kids and FH and quitting smoking, and life in general, I am so done.

    Yeah, it's been almost 4 months that I quit smoking and I still feel like I'm in withdrawals (no, I didn't advertise it, so don't think you missed a post). I'm staying strong, but it's just........I can't describe it. Well, maybe, take your worst depression and multiply by 1000! I'm not going back, so I just have to get through. Put on a few pounds in the process. I'm so large as it is, I wish I could say it doesn't really show, but it really does. :( I've been [putting all my energies into NOT smoking that basic living stuff has gone the wayside, and I'm not good with keeping up with that in the first place. :( :(

    So, hopefully getting away and getting back to nature (going to a camp in Vermont) will rejuvenate my mind and spirit.

    Congrats on being able to quit smoking. That is HUGE!!!! And good for FH for doing so too. :)

    That is my greatest worry, that I'll never get past wanting one for years and years. I kicked sunflower seeds years ago....and I still have my moments. Nail biting is long gone but that's been a good 20 yrs now.

    I hope this vacation is fantastic, especially for you. You deserve to kick back and have a great time.

    Thanks Hound, and you illustrated why I really need one. I Can't get cohesive thought out into words that make sense.

    FH is short for the not so Dear H, or F***ing H, if you will. He gets nothing positive because he gets what he gives - Manure.

    Well congrats on the smoking! I remember when I quit smoking back in 1990. Hate to tell you I restated 6 years later. But that doesnt happen to everyone and I was stupid and mine really happened for several reason...mainly because we caught Cory smoking and I tried that old method of forcing him to smoke an entire pack of nasty, non-filtered cigarettes to make him sick but it meant that I had to light them in order to hand them off and guess who got a bit of nicotine in the process. Didnt cause him to stop and I started back.

    But I do know that the first year or so were the hardest times. I couldnt even look at cigarettes without the urge. I deliberately went no where that allowed smoking, I didnt get in any checkout line where I had to look at them.

    Enjoy your vaca despite fh. Keep busy with fun and relaxing enjoyable activities and you won't want to smoke!

    I am at about three a day and I have to stop as well...have to get some life insurance and don't want the higher premium. It's only three, you'd think it would be a pinch. I think because it's ONLY three, it doesn't seem like a big deal. Sigh.

    Have a nice time, Vermont is so beautiful this time of year!
