Day 1

26 Nov

This morning, I woke up and decided reluctantly to give up – to quit. Hang on, it’s a nice quit. I decided to quit smoking – one more time, oh yeah!!! Hence, so far I have:


1. Washed my face with some kind of organic soap made of papaya and glycerine.

2. Drunk green tea.Β 

3. Made myself an omelette sandwich and managed not to burn the house down πŸ˜‰

4. Done half the laundry… Yay!! [I was actually saving this laundry until summer next year]

5. Saved the world!

There… all in a morning’s work. Phew!!! And soΒ begins my promise to take better care of myself… It’s just begun and my heart’s racing already… But I’m not going to rush – I’m going to take baby steps for now and as long as I don’t give up “baby steps” is just fine.

    Well done for taking your first steps. I did it seven – nearly eight – years ago.
