    Wednesday, January 27, 2010 | A Positive story

    Even though I am still on oxygen I walked 240 feet without sitting today and I was not that out of breath.  My goal is 500 feet by Feb 10, 2010.  Peggy my therapist said I did well today in spite of my very depressing mood.

    Saturday, February 19, 2011 | A Positive story

    I have not written in my Journal in such a long time I have been feeling guilty about it.  I am reading everyones updates and emails.  If I did not thank you personally I want to take a moment to thank you for all of the birthday wishes that I received. I really had quite the birthday this year.  I decided to deduct 10 years from my age and it worked.  I feel 10 years younger!...

  • I pet a wolf today

    Wednesday, July 17, 2013 | A Positive story

    I went to the wolf sanctuary and yes pet a wolf. He stared at me so I sat down and stared him in the eyes as paced back and forth, then he settled only for a moment to sit. He looked into my heart and could see I was troubled, tantalizing moment I must say, He peed on a tree I got up and hugged a tree. Now off to the zoo to talk to the mgr. to see what fear I can face and pet a elephant or giraff...

  • Trying to practice my program

    Monday, August 4, 2014 | A Positive story

    My Gran has been in a huffy mood because of the 100th Anniversary of WW1 and my Brother is moody when trying to sleep. Then my email stopped working when on Ubuntu. (I'm now on Mac o/s X and it works okay)
    Now I am having the old insane thoughts returning. Now I need to practice breathing exercises.

    It has been 111 days since my last cigarette. It has been a trial to say the least with all things medical and the urges to boot. When do those urges stop? Anyway I have tried to be a good role model for the newbies and not give in. I have persevered and NOT had one cigarette. Yay

  • 4 months smoke free

    Wednesday, June 3, 2015 | A Positive story

    Wow I can't believe I made it to 4 months. No cheating and I certainly could have because my brother still smokes. Usually by now I am ready to give up but not this time. I am good to keep going. I have not used an e cig in weeks. I don't even know how long it's been. Next I am looking at 5 months. Yay
