Even after nearly 11 months of not smoking, sometimes and for no apparent reason, I suddenly find myself thinking about smoking - and even though I have no intention of ever starting smoking again, I wonder if we, as quitters will forever be randomly hit by the thought of smoking and have to deal with it?
Some people think that having smoked at some point in our lives, ex-smokers will always have the tie to nicotine and will have to make the conscious choice for the rest of their lives not to smoke.
I sort of agreed with this and thought it was just something that an ex-smoker had to do. I think we've all heard of or even know the person who quit smoking twenty years ago but could still 'murder a cigarette'.
But then I came across this article and its given me a totally new perspective on the subject and really given me confidence that the answer is - if I change the way I think about it then.... NO, I definitely won't miss smoking forever.
Hopefully it will inspire others - have a read at:
