How do you see your life without the substance?

Day 2 here smokefree…
Just getting ready for my new life…
Feel like i have plenty of time… thats my 1st notice… need to occupy those time gaps with something good as well…
I have some social relations but its not enough…
Work and study for sure … but as today was a day off … it wouldnt fit.
Housework does helps as well…
Walking
Praying
Relaxation …
Thats all i did for today…
Love u guyz…share with me how u spend ur days after recovery??

My first few days I also became extremely aware of the time I’d gained (different substance, same addiction). Like you, I did laundry, cleaned the house, walked the dog. Then all that was done…

This community has been great for me to fill those moments with. Instead of feeding my addiction, I get on here and get my mind right. That being said, my therapist has also told me I need to give my brain a break once in a while. So I’ve been binging on a show I’ve been curious about for years. Also reading more and considering cross stitching.

Hope your day is going well.

Yesterday night and todays morning were not so good… had a few cig after long day clean.
Anyways am back determined to keep going.
Wont let those few cig pull me down
Right now am attending the weekly lecture in my diploma… focused… no smoking in the coffee break for the 1st time. Feels weired.
Still two hours to finish and go home…
Renew my oath and determination for a non smoking day :grinning:
