After almost 7 yrs of being nicotine free last night for some reason I walked into a store and a guy was smoking. Usually the smell stinks and I can't stand it. But last night it smelt good!
I couldn't figure out why then I remembered a post from John the the cigerette companies do this on ppurpose! They will add chocolete or some other smell to lure us addicts to thier products!
I couldn't believe it! But then I remembered I'm an addict and I will always look for a reason to smoke. I'm just greatful I remembered that. Thanks John and Joel
this is so helpful, right now, at this moment. when I've come this far and try not to think about how far I have to go...a "seemingly" long time. I just don't want to be disappointed in myself again--at least, not for going back to smoking. so, no hiding from craves, no hiding from all of me...and each day becomes a day of pride while I watch the "relapse disappointment" slowly fade into the mists of the past.amcanuck ( GOLD ) wrote: I decided a while ago that when I feel an urge to smoke ,I would give that my undivided attention. At first ,I would distract myself with other things.Now ,I face the thoughts dead on. I picture myself smoking and I remember what a let down the last one was. Then I forsee my dissapointment in myself. Then,by the time Im done doing all this in my mind,the desire has passed and I feel good.I know Im stronger than I ever thought I could be. So yes I embrace those craves because I think if you dont you will never be prepared for the bigger ones,the ones that are so tricky that you almost fortget how far you`ve come and that maybe if you could quit once you could do it again.I am getting fewer craves now ,sometimes most of a day will go by without a thought to smoking,and that is why when I do think about it I try to go through the whole process of relaspe in my mind,including the aftermath.amcanuck
