As we begin a new season, some of us (even long term quitters) can begin to "romance the cigarette." We remember being in a special place, perhaps with a special person, all was right with the world, and we felt at peace. The memory includes smoking a cigarette because, well, we pretty much always had one in hand, didn't we?
The thing is - that moment had not a thing to do with smoking!! It was a time and place that was special to us, and it included smoking because everything in those days did. BUT - it is the MOMENT, not the cigarette, that we want to recreate.
Go ahead and recreate that moment in a new way. Smoking is NOT required!
