Still Craving But Doing the DESTRACTION Thing...

Well, it is 6:21 PM and I am still working my way through my desire to smoke. Just because I want to do something, doesn't mean I HAVE to do it. I mean, if I felt like robbing a bank, would I do it? NO! I would think it through and realize that a felony and jail time were not really consequences I wanted to deal with. I have to think of cigarettes in the same way. I do not want to have to quit again...I would rather use the strategies I have learned and just not smoke even if I do feel like it. Since I knew I was on shaky ground, I have kept myself busy by hanging out with non-smokers. My friends boyfriend came in from Hawaii so I went over there to hang out. It was nice to visit and besides, no one there smokes. My friends complimented me on how good I looked and told me they were really proud of me for not smoking. I also went to an appointment and that was another place I could not smoke, even if I wanted to. I walked into the house and the house REEKED of cigarettes and I asked my sister if she had smoked in the house. She said "no" and I just went upstairs so the smell did not trigger anything else. I know I can get through this! Thanks for the supportive messages! I really appreciate the help.

You are doing great, Mz Diva. So much of it for me has been getting my head in the right spot to make it through, and you seem to be doing the same. Awesome!
