Today is the first day of my quit – – – no matter if I’m posting Day 1 or Day 1001.
What do I mean by this? …… It’s simple.
In the beginning what are we thinking about the most? Probably posting the number of days we’ve been quit, right? And that’s all great as we go through the hell of taking it one day at a time .. fighting the withdraws, the craves, the urges and the temptations of our addiction.
During these days we might be taking it moment by moment to get through to the next hour. Our quit days start to build confidence within us. We strive to make 100, 200, 300 days along side our quit brothers and sisters. We relish at the milestones we’ve accomplished …… and we should!
Yet it’s during this time …
when life begins to knock on the door of reality. We slowly start to take each day we’re quit for granted. We feel invincible. Some might even feel that since we’ve been quit a certain number of days, months and yes even years that one dip won’t hurt. We must fight against that urge and by doing so means saying to yourself, “Not today, my friend, today I’m quit.”
I believe some of us forget how and why we got to this point to begin with.
We got here by taking it one day at a time.
Not a month at a time, nor a year at a time.
Not even a forever ….. but one day … just today.
