why do cigarettes seem like the answer?

that stupid nagging feeling, that nic demon......as soon as there is an opportunity its there, poking you and enticing you to smoke. I know in my mind that Im not going to give in but the urge at the moment is so strong and Ive not even drank any alcohol. Im so glad Ive given that up too at the moment.

why is it that cigarettes seem like they will make everything ok when I know they wont. nicotine is an evil drug!

I wouldnt give in now, not at this point but just need to come on here and have abit of a rant and im looking forward to waking up in the morning and feeling proud that I got through another crazy craving:mad:

    You rant and rave my little moog-thats fine!!! you are doing fantastic-stay strong remind yourself why you stopped-write down the reasons and stick them on your fridge to remind you-you CAN do this -well done xxxx

  • It is the insidious nature of nicotine addiction, coupled with the decades of associations with smoking.

    When things happened you needed to deal with your craving for nicotine before you dealt with them. As such you formed an association that to deal with the situation you needed to smoke. Breaking the associations is how you gain your freedom but its not an overnight process and it needs some practice.

    But practice makes perfect as the old phrase goes.

  • Moog.... great job, you for hanging in there.... some days are tough and you just get through them..... they lessen, especially after all the physical cravings disappear.... within 2-3 weeks.... I am a month in and had a fabulous day so you see it is not all that too far away for you...... I remember those days though and they do stretch on but you have gone this far, you can go a little further...... imagine a life not having to get a fix every 1-2 hours.... hang in there and great job so far :)
