Well, although I had a dream that was VERY vivid and I woke up wanting a cigarette so badly, I was smoking in the dream, I am 2 WEEKS smokefree!!!
Supposedly, when you have a dream about something and it is so vivid, you wake up with it and think that it was real, that is like telling something goodbye. Don't know if that is true, but, I could almost taste that cigarette when I woke up. And am having real cravings today, but, I will survive and keep going forward LOL

I was quit for 5 years and I had dreams about smoking the entire time. It was really weird. But the worst thing was seeing someone smoking in a movie. They always make it look so good in movies. I had to get up and leave a couple of movies when I was first quit because I couldn't handle it. But 2 weeks is amazing, TG! I hope you do something really nice for yourself with the money you're saving every day by not smoking!!

Frankly, I don't know if this goes under "Celebrations" or "Venting" - I got my first of 3 or 4 Whisper Lasers today (about 1 hour ago or so) and while I am on my way to new and improved skin this doesn't really feel like a "sunburn" either OK, maybe that sunburn I had one time when I lived on Guam and I had to soak my lips in ice water and keep cool things on my face.

The REALLY good news is it IS after all Valentine's Day and the color of the day is red - and it will be that little splash of color every black dress needs At least we are going somewhere where it doesn't really matter anyway.

(one small vent - I hate that burnt smell - don't know if it's skin or hair)

Aidan rode his bike without training wheels for the first time today!!! He was so excited and proud of himself. He's so jazzed about riding on two wheels that he forgets to steer and because he's concentrating so hard.
