I do appear to be doing food substitutions as witnessed by my weight gain but that's ok with me. I will take care of it later and have actually started to be firmer with myself of late.
I have had a few thoughts "of smoking and then quitting in a few months". I dismiss them immediately but they are starting to come into my mind.
Is it maybe because I am "starting to challenge my nicotine substitutions" that junkie rationalizations are appearing?? I don't have any nicotine craves at all.
I do have an unpleasant but necessary action to perform in a few weeks. Usually when I have thoughts of a cigarette I have experienced some feeling of discomfort be it ever so small.
Maybe it is the expectation of feeling uncomfortable that is bringing on the thoughts of resuming smoking? Guess I should try to perceive this task that I must perform as an action that will eventually have a positive outcome.
Read something recently about around three months, addiction comes back with a Masters in psychology. Did that post plant a seed in my mind???
Reading the Law of Addiction is powerful for me so.......
The Law of Addiction
"Administration of a drug to an addict will cause
re-establishment of chemical dependence
upon the addictive substance."
I have been quit for 2 Months, 2 Weeks, 6 Days, 21 hours, 4 minutes and 10 seconds (81 days). I have saved $81.87 by not smoking 1,637 cigarettes. I have saved 5 Days, 16 hours and 25 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 10/04/2009 12:00 AM
