Dear Wee Letters


Dear Wee                                                                                                                                                                                                Your bio said that you used to smoke.
I quit about 2 months ago and feel like I have done fairly well.
I have however, transferred my addiction to food and as a result I am gaining a lot of weight.
I seem to be replacing cigarettes with food and way too much of it.
I feel like my new addiction is something that will eventually have a serious effect on my health (if it isn’t already) and I wondered if you experienced the same thing and/or what you might suggest.
Thank you,
Debbie

Debbie,
First of all let me congratulate you on taking charge of your life.
When I quit, yes I craved sugar. I carried toothpicks everywhere and having something in my mouth to replace the cigarette seemed to help. Thus, simulating the physical act of smoking. I also chewed a lot of gum and yes, and I ate a lot of hard candy.
However, toothpicks and hard candy will never do the harm to my body that smoking did.
Since you’ve already demonstrated you are a powerful person by quitting, Stop claiming you have a food addiction. You simple want food to replace your nicotine. Don’t give food the power of an addiction.
When you want something to eat try telling yourself, I won’t eat for the next hour. You can do anything for an hour. Compliment yourself at the end of the hour. Repeat as needed
I am sending you my article on How to Quit Smoking and again I congratulate you on empowering yourself.

I am a 33 yr old mother of 2.
My boyfriend and I have lived together for about 2 years, and it seems like I just can’t get ahead.
I took a job that I love and I am finally making some money.
I love my boyfriend very much, but he has had probably 10-12 different jobs since we have been together and doesn’t seem to make enough to help out with any of the bills.
He treats me good so I hate to criticize him and I don’t know how to approach him about his lack of work ethic without hurting his feelings.
How do you think I should handle this?
Thanks,
Connie
Connie,
Congratulations for recognizing the problem and taking charge of your life.
Usually in new relationships we all put our best foot forward. So you might ask yourself, if this is his best effort what might you expect in 5 or 10 years?                                                                                                                                                  Accept that you will never change another persons behavior. You do have the power to change your life. So continue empowering yourself as you’ve done by writing for help.                                                                                                                Sit down and write 5 behaviors you are willing to accept from him and continue in the relationship. Then write 5 behaviors that are unacceptable. Then write what action you need to take. Not what he needs to do – What you need to do.                                                                                                                                                                  Relationships are a two way street and always evolving. You have the power to decide what you are willing to accept and to say “No” the things that are unacceptable.                                                                                                                                    I’m sending you my article “No Is a Complete Sentence”                                                                                                           Please Visit   http://changeyourlifebookstore.com and http://booksbywee.com
