I saw a member put up a post with this title and then deleted the post. Not sure what it was all about but I thought this string might be of some benefit to whoever the person was.

Hi Joel

That was me trying to pull it up, but I think I messed up and that's the reason I deleted it.I will read up on the thread info again and maybe try another one later

Thanks

This article is another one I've read several times, becuase it especially keeps my mental focus on track.

It really is TOO easy to start romancing that perfect one, and dismissing all the rest that made it to where I could barely breathe at night when I'd lay down in bed, breathing a sigh of relief that I had nothing ELSE to do, no other requirements for energy exertion that I had to huff and puff through and couldn't wait to sit down. This really was HOW bad it WAS for me. And KNOWING as surely as if it's carved in stone that having that perfect one doesn't come without strings..it comes with all the rest of those choking, system clogging gag-a-rettes really keeps me where I want to be. Smoke Free and able to do whatever needs doing in my daily life and then some. When I go to bed now I breathe easily and still have energy left over at the end of the day. Gone are the "I can't wait to get this done and sit down" moments. And I LOVE that.

And I love this article too. Thanks Joel !!!

Blessings,

For any new member or any longer term member who thinks that they are "obsessing about smoking." It is much more likely that you are fixating on a cigarette.

Should you ever find yourself fixating on the thought of smoking, use the experience as a golden opportunity to teach both your conscious and subconscious minds the truth. Don't run from your thoughts, confront them!

Maybe there are others but I can only see two ways for us to put distance between us and a long, intense yet bad relationship - time and truth.
