Day 4 - Last Night = No Fun.

So last night was terribly hard for me. My sister-in-law and nephew were in town staying the night last night so we could have a small birthday party for him today at our house. Let's just say that my timing to quit smoking wasn't the greatest when it comes to having company over. The volume was so loud in the house and everything was just going crazy - I had to get out.

I left the house to go pick up dinner for everyone - I was planning on going with someone. I decided that I needed time to myself. Long story short...I still didn't smoke. I so wanted to make that turn into the gas station and buy a pack of smokes...but I've made it this far and I'm not going to let a few extra people in my house stop me from quitting this nasty habit.

Alas - It's been 70 hours, 27 minutes since I last had a drag off a cigarette. This is getting harder I think - my throat is starting to flare up, my eyes are burning, my focus is gone...but I will NOT give up.

I'm doing this for myself, my beautiful wife AND my precious boys at home! I will persevere.

Talk to you soon!
