Dinner at home and Quitting again

January 27th, 2011 at 11:46 am

I made dinner at home last night. I made a hamburger helper. I had the hamburger in the freezer and the helper was $1 at DG. Made some garlic bread to go with it and dinner was served. My son now has food to eat tonight. (I don't eat hamburger meat, but my kids do so we end up with a good amount of leftovers.) I am enjoying cooking. Even though our schedules rarely line up to eat together, I at least know there is something there to be eaten. Lets hope I can keep it up. I did have to throw away the first thing of hamburger meat because the cats got into it and ate half of it. my daughter forgot to put the meat back in the microwave, which is where we hide things we don't want the cats to eat. Frustrating, but at least we had some more in the freezer.

I am trying to quit smoking...again. The last time I went almost 2 months before I started again. I had my last cigarette yesterday morning. Let me explain...I don't believe that I am actually addicted to the nicotene. I have always been able to go without having a cigarette for many days. Mainly it is when I am bored that I smoke. So the key is to keep myself busy and then I won't be tempted to smoke. The worst time is when I am work. I also treated having a cigarette as a kind of break to get me away from my desk for a minute. So right now I am very close to going to get a pack of cigarettes. Heres the thing though, a co-workers husband was just diagnosed with cancer and as far as I know he never smoked or dipped or anything. I also have another friend going through chemo for non hodgens lymphoma. I don't want to end up like either one of them. I also like being with my daughter. I have never admitted toher that I smoke, but I am sure she has figured it out. So when I would have to run to the store, I would make her stay home so I could smoke a cigarette. I enjoy asking her to go with me now. Just alot of reasons to quit and quit for good. Wish me luck.

Sorry for rambling. Like I said, I am bored at work right now.

    Congrats on cooking dinner at home...garlic bread makes a meal seem great! I know, I am having the family over tonight for a fairly plain dinner and have added g bread!

    You can do it! Just keep reminding yourself of why you want to quit. Maybe put what you'd spend each week on them into a fun fund.
