Today is a new day , I don’t need to use today. I have been to the doctor’s office today and had a great talk with the P A that has been seeing me. She has told me that physically I’m doing very well. We also talked about my outpatient program , as she has opened my eyes to a different point of view . I now realize the difficulty these instructors and counselors have. It has to be very arduous to try to teach to an audience that has no will to learn . Maybe the participation is low because of the lack to learn by the persons ordered there to begin with.The negative people I was in contact with were a bigger influence on me that I could have imagined. As i look back at my blog I find as I shut the past out more and more the stronger I get. The power I have received from putting the past behind me is magnificent. Tomorrow will be the 4th week chantix mark, as I have been 21 days without smoking cigarettes. I do have to say in all honesty , I don’t think I would quit them both again at the same time. I am feeling better from this as well as the positive influences in my life at the present. Friends have been telling me I even look healthier and younger , so I put this picture together to look at and see. I am astounded at the difference ( maybe I’m the only one that can tell ) but there’s a huge difference from the top pics to the bottom which are very current. The top left pic was taken 3 years ago in the mist of a drug and alcohol binge. The top right picture was taken 2 months ago in a full-blown drug rampage. The two bottom pictures were taken within the last week while the center was a few weeks after my arrival to N Y .
People we think we know therefore we do, there’s a lot of this in the world as I was probably its biggest reprobate. I have a lot to learn on this subject as I think most of us do, but being in this society , its hard to do. That’s what I thought and you know the key is keeping positive , positive people ,The people who I’m in the closest contact with are going to determine my actions , to a curtain extent. I do have my second Friday group meeting tomorrow as I will embrace this with a much more open mind than before. I’m feeling optimistic everyone and look forward for tomorrows embrace………
