Day 9 of My Journey to Quit Smoking 💚

Day 9: September 27th, 2018

5:56 a.m.

I woke up around 4:30 a.m. so I can start preparing myself for #thefives. What is #thefives you ask?

#theFives is simple:

Pray for one hour at 5am, 5 days a week (Monday-Friday), for 5 weeks.

Believe Boldly provides early morning prayer accountability, via technology, in a small group setting for the length of each 5 weeks. By using the GroupMe app, we place you in a group and provide you with all the tools you need to begin a conversation with God. The rest is up to you!

I am beyond excited about this group! Next year I will share all of the information about this group with y’all earlier, just in case any of y’all would like to join!

Anyway, I have my little note (to remind myself to make my herbal tea) attached to my little tea pot, so I will not forget today! Today is going to be such a great day, I can just feel it! I’ll talk to y’all later.

9:13 a.m. I did some cleaning, cooked breakfast, and I’m fixing to infuse some herbs into some delicious oils. I’ve smoked 7 cigarettes so far. Not good, but not bad. I will be making my herbal tea in a few minutes. So I guess you could say today is going good! I’ll check back in a little later!

11:00 a.m. I have smoked 9 flipping cigarettes. Good grief! I would say it’s definitely time to take a nap! I have decided to go to Wal-Mart later, when I will be going to town anyway! Haha! Momma is tired. I got the oils infusing though and I decided to wait for my herbal tea since I plan to take a nap. Anyway, I’ll check in again later.

3:08 p.m. My nap was amazing! For the first hour or two I was tossing and turning, but the other two hours I slept really good. It was nice. Now I’m up and I’m drinking coffee. So, of course, I’m smoking a cigarette. Anyway, I plan to make my herbal tea soon. I’m gonna need it. Oh yeah, check this out! My book + workbook arrived for my #thefives group! I’ll talk to y’all later.

10:12 p.m. I’ve smoked 16 cigarettes and I FINALLY drank a cup of herbal tea! I didn’t add the chamomile this time, since my sleeping supplement has chamomile in it, but at least I got to drink one cup of my herbal tea today!

I was just too busy napping, eating supper, and getting everybody ready for the Mixed Martial Arts belt test this afternoon/evening to remember to make my herbal tea. It’s better late than never I guess! Haha. Anyhow, both of my daughters earned their orange belts! Woot! Woot! I’m so proud of them! We celebrated with Braums Ice Cream afterwards! Haha, sugar cravings. Well guys and gals, I think I’ll get off of here for the night. I hope y’all have sweet dreams and God bless. ❤️
