I'll be praying for you.

I must admit that we've missed your posts. I'm glad you're back. Take it slowly...

Are you working?

Good luck with quitting smoking! I've heard good things about using wellbutrin, so best of luck. By the way, I like the new picture. I missed the beard!

been there ... well, still there, in a way... have been on meds since 2003, and recently started taking them regularly again. at first I was ashamed to take them, but I realized I was taking the initiative to get on the right track, and that's nothing to be ashamed of. best of luck with everything. take time to do things that make you happy. take small steps, get through one day at a time.

Are you working?

Thanks. Yeah I'm working. I took yesterday off and rested in a hotel, and only did a short run today. I'll be doing another short one in the morning and not sure what I'll do after that. About all I really feel like doing is sleep.

I'm a former smoker. Every time you have a craving, picture a tobacco exec sitting down to a lobster dinner in his mansion while you're sucking air on an oxygen tank LOL. Hey, it helped me!

Also, smokers and their stuff reek -- really bad reek. You don't realize it until you quit. I've been frequenting thrift stores as of late. You can ALWAYS tell when an item came from a smokers home -- the smell, the sticky feeling from the nicotine.

I quit smoking and had a baby. I can tell you that kicking the cigs was far tougher! Get all the help you need -- and don't feel bad about it AT ALL!

Good luck!

I felt the same way when I first had to take them a number of years ago, but it's no different than having to take blood pressure or other meds.

Honestly I should have gone back on them after the car wreck during my 14 month recovery. I've known I've needed them for over a year now, but being hard-headed is just my way I guess.
