One month smoke free!! Super pumped about this. I stopped taking my pills almost two weeks ago. The cravings have definitely increased - but I remain focused. Along with the increased cravings comes the increased bitchyness/temper!! So I have been trying to resolve this issue especially after a little incident with my cat. It was a Sunday morning and I had made Karter a nice breakfast. I placed it on the table and turned to get Karter in his chair. As I turned around the cat was high tailing it for Karters food. In a state of temperment I picked up the cat and with a couple shakes and a stern voice yelled "Ryder (shake) get (shake) off (shake) the (shake) table (double shake). I then looked over at Karter - his eyes are huge and his mouth is slightly open from the shock and he quietly whispers "Down", which is usually what we tell the cat when she is on the table. I took the cat and placed her in the bathroom, came back to the table and explained "Karter - mommy's behaviour is unacceptable and she deserves a time out".
I guess I was a bit concerned bc Karter is so impressionable and that behaviour is really not right. I am pleased that Karter has not copied my behavior and he just yells "DOWN" at the cat and does not try shaking her.
P.S. No cats were injured.
