My Journey to Quit Smoking: Week 7

Week 7: October 31st – November 6th (Days 43 – 49)

Day 43: Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

Happy Halloween! 👻

Today we got all dressed up and went to the Fall Festival at our little church! We had a blast! My older daughter and I painted faces, my husband helped with some of the games, and my younger daughter ran around playing games and collecting candy.

I smoked my pipe 8 times today.

Day 44: Thursday, November 1st, 2018

One of my soul sisters, her husband, and their kiddos came down for a visit today! We had a lot of fun hanging out with them! Maybe a little too much fun! Lol My soul sister and I stayed up until 2 a.m. and we drank 3 bottles of wine! Oh my! There were lots of laughs shared between us though, so it was a good night.

I smoked my pipe 12 times today.

Day 45: Friday, November 2nd, 2018

My Aunt Lee Ann came down for a visit today, so my husband and I joined her, my momma, and my brother for supper at the casino. We ate until we were stuffed and then played some games at the casino. It was a lot of fun!

Day 46: Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

I was supposed to wake up early and set up my Harvest Moon products at the Fill the Sleigh event today, but I woke up late. So, my husband and I loaded up the kiddos and attended the event as customers today. It was super windy, so I’m kind of glad I didn’t set up. I do believe my tent and products would have been blown away if I had! Anyway, we didn’t stay long because of the wind. We just grabbed some lunch from one of the food trucks, ate in my vehicle, ran a few errands, and headed home.

My two older nieces came over to stay the night, so we had a lot of fun hanging out with them!

My Aunt Lee Ann wanted to do a family game night tonight, so we all brought over snacks foods to my brother’s house. I love family game nights! We all had a blast!

Day 47: Sunday, November 4th, 2018

We all slept in today and just chillaxed.

My oldest niece and I drank coffee and talked. She loves coffee just as much as I do and she always has the most interesting things to talk about!

My younger niece and daughters enjoyed the day by walking all around our tiny town, my son and his girlfriend just watched movies all day, and my husband played his game.

Day 48: Monday, November 5th, 2018

Today was a busy day, but a good day! We had to go to town to get a grill guard put on my husband’s brand new pick-up truck, so we went out to eat for lunch and grabbed some groceries while we were there. Then we headed home to put away the groceries, do some chores, and eat supper.

This evening we went up to my younger niece’s basketball game, which was a really good game! They lost, but they sure played hard.

I ended the night with a live Facebook video about my Harvest Moon business and watched a few episodes of “Medium”.

Day 49: Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

Today was a busy day! I made some elderberry syrup, rebottled some of my tinctures, and got some jars ready to store some of my new herbs. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but it definitely kept me busy!

Since today was election day, my mom and I planned a little watch party at my brother’s house. On the way over to my brother’s house my husband and I stopped to vote. My husband was able to vote, but I was not. Apparently my drivers license has expired and I could not find my voter’s ID card. I think this is the first time I have not voted since I turned 18 years old! I was sad, to say the least. The watch party was a lot of fun anyway! ❤️

My goals for this next week are: to pull out my herbs and try some recipes to help curb my cravings, use my smoking blend to replace some of the pipefuls of tobacco, and get down to smoking my pipe 5 or 6 times a day!

I’m so ready to quit, y’all! I just want to continue to wean myself though. I am so scared of the withdrawal symptoms people have when they quit cold turkey. I do not want to lash out or be angry all the time, especially since I have my three kiddos at home with me 24/7. I know it’s going to happen, I just have to have patience. 😊
