About to start Day 14

Well I am about to complete Day 13.

I went out to a movie for the first time since I quit. For the first time in years I did not think of smoking during the entire movie. (3:10 to Yuma.. good flick)

However, as soon as the credits started rolling and I stood up I was blindsided by a huge smoking trigger. It is kind of funny how the mind works. I just recognized it for what it was... a trigger.. and let it go.

Well Day 14 will start for me in less then 2 hours. I am eager to make it through it and move on to week 3!

  • Morning Jon. Well done you for getting through the filmhttp://img99.exs.cx/img99/8577/yupi3ti.gif

    I'm on day 10 now- double figures. Had a couple of triggers but nothing I couldn,t handle. what keeps me going is that I know the hardest part is over and by giving in now I'd be right back where I started and I don't want to go through it again!

  • Ah what a key point made! I just recognized it for what it was... a trigger.. and let it go. that's pure genius!! many people would benefit from reading that!!!

    Almost halfway through day 13! Today seemed much easier than yesterday. I have decided to stay away from alchohol for awhile because i know it be a huge trigger. I usually like to enjoy a few beers on Sunday while watching the football games. Good luck and keep going!
