I have been free for nearly 4 months, in that time i had a few puffs of a cigarette, about 4 weeks ago when i was a tad tipsy. I am very glad I did, in technical stock trading it is called a kiss it goodbye move.
Basically when a stock rises in price and passes a resistance level it usually has a pullback to the resitance level and kisses it goodbye before bouncing back up higher.
I needed that kiss it goodbye retrace of a few puffs. The reason it was so good is that it wasn't nicotine that drew me to it. I had a few puffs and felt no relief, no joy. . . nothing. This psychologically triggered a realisation smoking is pointless for me now.
EVEN THOUGH I had a kiss it goodbye event and know smoking is pointless and do not physically crave cigarettes - I still for some strange reason feel I could still go back to smoking. I have not completely let it go and sometimes think about smoking - not crave it think about it. If I had cigarettes in my house I feel I would be tempted to smoke one now and then. Does anyone else feel like this...
