This is so right on... exactly how I've been feeling just days away from green! It's just too much trouble: I'd have to get dressed, walk across the street in the cold, wet weather, find something to light the thing with, find an ashtray or some sort of substitute, smoke outside in the cold and wet so that my house doesn't get stinky again (all the time and energy it took to clean the walls down the tubes - no way!) and then probably feel nauseus and ashamed and just keep on going right on through the whole pack... outside each time until it got to be too much of a pain and then stinking my house up all over again... all the great strides I've made since stopping smoking with my circulation/pain issues down the tubes... more money spent the rest of the week supplying myself... trying to hide it from everyone who knows I've quit, going outside when the baby's around... then the aggravation of quitting again. Definitely, most assuredly, without a doubt TOO MUCH TROUBLE! I may be going through a stressful time right now with triggers upon triggers piling up around me but ain't no way I'm going to add the trouble of smoking again to my little mess and make it a big mess... Again; just too much trouble.

ImageI love this post. We all know how much trouble it has become for people to grab a smoke somewhere. Sooooo....from Dave's post above.....

"Sure, you want ONE, but do you want twenty," etc. My answer to all that now is, "Nah, it's just too much trouble. One might be okay, but the rest of them--just too much trouble." Inertia has begun to take over and it's just easier NOT to smoke."

Yep, its just too much trouble! Besides, if I went outside to smoke now, I would completely ruin the luscious smell of honeysuckle wafting through the air! Now thats an AAH feeling for you!
One day at a time and NTAP!
