Re: 1st Day of 40 Days Water Fast
Thank you! You're always so helpful! But James, I read somewhere that smoking while fasting can be very dangerous, isn't that true? I can't even stand the smell of it right now.. and you were right! I did get pimples.. I'm amazed, I usually never get it, not even when I was 13-15 and everybody else had their face full of pimples. I used to get it when I was religiously fasting, before Christmas.. but it only lasted a few days and they looked just like they do now.. They're not red or anything like that, I actually didn't notice I had them before I stepped into a very bright light.. is there anyone else who gets pimples while fasting? Why did I get it now?
James, I'm so sorry to hear that your parents didn't support you. You went on a fast anyway so they should have shared their experience with you.. it would have been so much easier for you.. and thank you for your recommendation. I will try it. I haven't fasted for very long so I don't have many tips for you but today for example, I felt very dizzy and I thought that maybe it's because I don't drink enough water.. because I don't like the taste of it at all right now.. so I just forced myself to drink it.. and I felt better.
I think that there are so many people who abuse food. They eat because they're bored or because they are sad.. I do that too:)) It's awful! but today I started to get really good ideas of what I can eat after I break my fast.. and it's very healthy too! but at the same time it makes me feel like I'm obsessed with food. I just hope the cravings will fade after awhile, it's really hard for me to keep thinking of food..
tomorrow is day 5! and then I only have 5 more days to day 10.. and then.. only 30 left :)) I'm getting closer! Thank you again, are you thinking about starting a fast again too?
