H.A.L.T. is the method I used to quit smoking. Each letter stands for a word, only in my case, I made each letter stand for two words.
H= Honestly Hungry
A=Angry or Anxious
L= Lazy or Lonely
T= Tired or Thirsty
Anyone of these choices is what I used to stop my craving for a cigarette. Was I honestly hungry? Or was I just wanting to stuff my face cuz I couldn't smoke? I would ask myself one of these questions any time the urge to smoke came up. Was I lazy? Lonely? Anxious? I noticed that more often than not, I was just thirsty or tired. I have also noticed that when I am tired, my tolerance for anything irritating goes out the window. Not sleeping well these last two days has me on edge. My husband has Sleep Apnea and has not been using his C-PAP machine the way he is supposed to. Needless to say, that is the reason I haven't been sleeping. I spent the last two nights trying to sleep on the couch. I never knew our couch was sooo uncomfortable. It always feels so cozy when I lay on it in the afternoon. Wonder why it feels so different at night. Hmmm????
Because I am tired, I have been short tempered with him. I need to apologize for being cranky, but he also needs to use that damn machine, so I don't get crabby! I am too irritated and too tired to really care if there is a lesson or a blessing  that I am supposed to notice. Hopefully I can get some sleep tonight.
