It’s that time of the morning

Morning all,

17 hours in now and also first thing in the morning which is my favourite time to go for a cig. To try and avert this, I’ve made a lovely coffee and am standing up while drinking it - coupled with deep breathing exercises.

Any other ideas would be welcomed 😁

Good morning Tommy, It sounds like you already are beating your addiction. Enjoy your coffee, then perhaps have a short walk to make full use of those breathing exercises.

Hold your head high and think to yourself " I dont smoke anymore"

remember NOPE!

xxxx Have a good day. :)

Well done tommy!! Any change of routine is a tremendous help. If you're really stuck,cut out the coffee for a while.................difficult,I know. I only drink tea at home,for a coffee I go to a bar (Italy).XXX

Good work Tommy. This was me yesterday and I got through it. Lots of walking around and mixing up my habits, e.g after food I would go outside and smoke, now I walk around the block or read an article on my phone, good luck!

Thank you. Yeah it’s making me very hot and antsy not being able to smoke at the moment and I’m hoping the changes in routine will help alleviate this sooner rather than later 😂

Well done tommy, keep changing up your routine and keep going👍🏼

The deep breathing exercises got me out of lots of difficult situations, they really do work. Keep busy and distract yourself. Slowly and surely you will get there🚭✅xx

Thanks so much x
