Some hope up here... we've had snow in late June some years, and it's at it again now!
I refuse to get angry about it, (Grrr...) 'cause if I do, I lose the Plot, and want a remembered comforter - a ciggie, no surprise there then. So, just about two weeks coming up, and I definitely haven't had too hard a time - YET!
For me, the Ecigs have helped very much, because they have taken the panic out of me.
I know that too will need stop eventually. But, because I'm used to "instant gratification" with the Rollups, I don't think I'll lose that obsession in a few weeks - It's going to take time to learn new ways to live. Lets face it - a 50 year habit is pretty well entrenched in my head!
I think that is going to be one of the YET's, and why people can crave a smoke memory even a long time after stopping. I'm sure the key is - to accept a craving/obsession will happen occasionally, and not let it frighten us to lite-up that first puff again. The memories of our smoking days will never completely go away, (that would be expecting too much surely).
So, I have a lot of new ways of thinking to learn - (might make this smoke free life more interesting... yeah... why not!) I may as well look forward to it, instead of being resentful and sulky. That way of thinking just screw's me up every time.
Thank you to everyone that suggested drinking more water to help with the Headache and the Ecig, I'm sure your'e right. Trouble with me is - I don't like cold drinks, so it will have to be hot water, (Ugg). And as I don't drink alcohol either... I'll maybe try hot Ribena!
Enjoy Sunday good folk, and remember - when that torment of a craving bites... well, it won't last forever. "This too shall pass".
