There Goes Another One…

Week that is. I’m sure I saw it woosh by my ear, or was that one of the cats? *sighs*

It’s been 2 weeks since I had a cigarette. Is it getting easier? No, but at least it’s not getting harder lol. I was determined last Monday that I was going to get back to normal. Ha ha ha, yeah, right, it’s not happened. I’m sleeping more, eating more, reading more (books), writing less, and socialising less (online). If it wasn’t for this little bundle I’d probably wouldn’t get dressed!

Albies been my reason for getting up each morning, as I would quite happily just sit in bed all day and read.

So how do I get back on track? I’m finding it really difficult? Should I just have a break from everything and be done with it? So I don’t feel so guilty? But then what if I never get back into it? I’ve got Nano coming up and I need to prep, but I can’t find the motivation. Gawd, this sounds like an IWSG post lol.

Ok, I’ll stop whining, try to focus lol. Wish me luck 🙂

What are your writing plans for the week. Please share, it might get me fired up again 🙂
