How do you deal with the cravings and urges? I know we all know the usual tips (drink water, chew something, go for a walk etc) - is there anything our of the "ordinary" or special any of you have found works for you?
I found a technique that works for me so far. When I get the "thought of one" I found that looking at a picture of my son (if he is not around!) helps a lot as I could not justify giving in to the crave to him or justify smoking full stop - so I have sevral pictures in my handbag, at the office, as screensavers on my blackberry - everywhere - I then engage in a mental dialogue with him rather than with the voice. I does not always entirely get rid of the thought but really helps in my determination to wait until it passes.
