My Nephew who is 15 was suddenly struck with terrible jaundice , and after several scary days of tests he has been told he has auto immune hepatitis....chronic illness with treatment of prednisone (hormonal steroids) and will be monitored and watched and tested for life ...he has also been put on the live transplant list :just in case:..
...Good news is it was found early in his life and can be treated...bad news is his mother is a active addict and alcoholic who is also anorexic...........she is fighting for sobrity again in the face of this news , but based on the past I am not hopeful she can.....
My daughter had her 2nd surgery in 2 years for endometriosis and cysts in the ovaries.....our hope is they will not grow back......she has been suffering terribly in the past few month especially , with the pain. She will be 23 in a couple of weeks and hoping to start college in the Fall . I pray this opertation was the answer for her. I has been 6 long years of mostly pain for my girl..........
I am at her place right now and battling smoking HARD...she smokes in her place and usually would not smoke around me but since she can hardly move right now there is not much I can do ...it smells terrible and good all at the same time!! I have walked her dog many times , stepped out on the balcony , guzzled water and reviewed all the reasons I am not going to consider smoking.......a good choice last night was to NOT bring that bottle of wine with me....I would have been a goner...
I forgot to look at my stats before I started this post but I am going to make that 5 month mark next week without having taken one single puff.............I will say I am looking forward to going home later today and getting away from the smoke smell and temptation right there!!!
NOPE and DFS continue to be my mottos LOL
Have a great weekend

Hello my friend. How scary and difficult for you right now. I can sure understand how you would be so badly tempted. You are doing all the right things, so keep doing them, k? You can ride out this wave until you hit your home shores. I believe in your ability to dog paddle! lol

Don't give in, have faith...HAND IT OVER TO YOUR HIGHER POWER right now!! It always helps me in my many many struggles and many moments of weakness. There will always be life stuff and you can always find excuses to cave and smoke...but you can CHOOSE not to smoke too!! You will be thankful for this day of not smoking, tomorrow and the next day and the next! hollyo

Today is the best day to not smoke!
It looks like you know the triggers and are heading them off. Stay strong. You are worth it. The first two weeks of your quit will be the hardest thing you do in your life unless you must quit again. Not one puff! --Janet--
you have done well, dont throw it away now my friend!
If your daughter quit smoking it would reduce the cysts and such. I know because mine has virtually disappeared since I quit smoking!
Just a thought there.
Keep walking the dog, the puppy will love ya for it. Keep stepping outside to smell the clean air. Keep drinking the water you will lose a few extra pounds in the process of all three of these. Call it your diet plan, and accept it until you leave. When you get home wash all of your stuff even the clean stuff so you dont smell the rank smoke, and be goddang proud of yourself for not smoking.
