Diary entry - Smoking

Diary entry for Dec. 9, 2023
I can feel my baby growing inside me. Sheís a constant reminder of the incredible journey I'm on. Joseph and I spent a quiet evening together, just enjoying each other's company. The love we share is so profound, and I find myself grateful for it every day.
I stopped smoking for the sake of my baby, and I know it was the right thing to do. Still, there are moments, especially after making love to Joseph, where I long for the comfort of a single cigarette. It's like a ghost from my past, whispering in my ear, tempting me to indulge just this once.
Writing down how hard it is to resist helps. Iím just thankful that alcohol and drugs havenít been a strong temptation during this time. Perhaps Joseph is my new addiction. He's like that thought.

Author's Note
Sometimes my diary helps me deal with day to day challenges. The photo is edited from one a past lover took. Oh, how I miss being slim.
