A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

Hey ya'll did you miss us?  My computer was down for a week and AT&T came today.   This was my only available day this week.  Needed a new Modem.  He said the other one shorted out?  I don't care as long as it didn't cost me anything.  LOL  Well now I'm up and running and I'm sure I have a lot of catching up to do. So it will take awhile because I have really busy weeks a head of me.

Well..............the good news.  The last 4 weeks I have gone to "Quit Smoking Now" Classes.  Twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Very good class.  They give you free patches to wear.  Well, our quit date was January 21st  and I have not had a Cigarette since the 20th!  I'm sorry but I am so proud of myself.  This is probably my 5th time trying to stop in the last 6 months.  I just pray each day I have the strength to go on!

Anyway I have missed everyone of you, especially my Doodles.

I'm with you, up smoking was hard, I'm NOT giving up my coffee too!  Grace, you're doing great!!  I have to tell you that when I quit I waited until my husband left town for a week and did it while he was gone.  He was never a smoker, but I didn't want his input! :)  I really admire you for being able to stand strong with a smoker in the house!  Keep it up!! :)

I'm really determined this time.  I'm starting week #3.  I just found out today that one of the girls in my class owns a Labradoodle.  We're going to bring pictures on Thursday.  I told her about the community and told her she would really enjoy it.  So I hope she joins.

Isn't it amazing how those two go together Debra?  I quit drinking over six years ago but it took me a long time to quit the smoking. So worth it! Grace, I also found that my coffee drinking has gone way down. Apparently once the nicotine is out of your system, you can become more sensitized to caffeine. I sure did and found any coffee I drank after the morning was keeping me awake at night.

Yes it will Grace, hang in there you're doing great!!! My son told me to indulge in anything else!  I just passed a month smoke free and it got really good recently. So you've got a great doodle cheering squad!

Thanks Bruce. That'll work for me. LOL.
Hey Dianne and Dulcie.....there you are. We missed you too.
O.K. I just finished my 2nd week of not smoking. The all time worse is the morning when I'm having my coffee and reading the paper. I use to smoke a 1/2 pack then. This too shall pass.

Hang in there, Grace!  Been there, done that, so I understand the journey!   A funny little trick the hypnotist who helped me told me to try - keep a little baggy of baking soda near by.  When you get one of those killing urges, dip your finger in the baking soda and then put it in your mouth.  Weird, but it seemed to work - don't know why!  Have missed you guys!

Did you hear about the vandals that cut a hole in the nudist camp fence ?  The police are looking into it.

(has nothing to do with smoking, but gives you other things to think about !!)

We are here for you, Grace!!! Couldn't be prouder of you for quitting.
When it gets hard, picture all of us cheering you on!
