From: I Do Not Fear Fear Anymore





Last week I feared many things as I have yet to face many triggers as I am nearly 5 months quit but felt I needed to go full circle to face all my triggers to believe I had this quit under complete control


however this last week has turned that theory on its butt


today for me was many many triggers rolled into one and if I had stopped to think about it or worried about it - it would have been so much worse


last week I faced my `drinking in the sun` It was not hard - it was uncomfortable for a short while as I made it so by the fear of it but actually I can honestly say that it was a doddle in comparison to the fear of anticipation


but - it put me in good stead for today as I was at a festival plenty of tea was flowing ;) I had not once been scared or feared the day I just went with the flow


The day ended very emotional for me as my years of coaching my nieces was in evident that paying it forward works - life had indeed come full circle for them and I had not been more proud, more emotional than tonight for many years


If ever there was a time to turn to the cancer stick(as an excuse) it would have been tonight, for a celebration or a comfort, beer etc etc - but it did not


a hug with my girls was more than enough


keep your quit KYQ and stick to NOPE - it works


today was a good day :)
