last cig: 2nd Nov.
Reading some other posts, something really obvious just occured to me. You know how you can say something without really feeling it, then suddenly it really hits you?
When I crave a cig it's because something is worrying me, usually work. I have to stare down whatever it is that's causing me to stress, not run away and smoke.
I know for other people smoking might be due to boredom, or social smoking or other triggers, but for me smoking was definitely a way of avoiding things that stressed me out.
So my mantra is forget the cigarette....and get on with life, with all its ups and downs!
