The Quit Rollercoaster

The early days of a quit can be an emotional rollercoaster; great big peaks followed by deep, dark valleys, followed by more peaks and valleys. But as long as you keep choosing life, the peaks and the valleys will smooth out little by little until you find yourself back on an even keel.

Until then, don’t be too discouraged by the valleys; another peak is just around the bend (by the same token, don’t get too excited by the peaks; another valley is probably just ahead).

The key is to learn to accept whatever’s happening in any given moment as part of the healing process, and as long as you keep choosing life, it will be.
