It's the Holidays AND Change in Seasons

Blog Post created by Youngatheart.7.4.12 on Dec 14, 2019

If your quit is two years old or less, don't be surprised if you start to think of smoking as the holidays and the seasonal change to winter occur.  We don't have a lot of practice getting past our triggers and associations with the change in  seasons and all that the holiday season brings (family drama may also be added to the mix!).

Don't be alarmed!  It happens to the best of us.  Just understand why it is happening.  Keep in mind that a thought is not a call to action.  If you need to make an excuse and take a break, do it.  Take a walk if you need it.  Take slow/deep breaths if you need them.  Come here and blog if you think it will help.

Just don't smoke.  All the fuss will be over soon!

And your quit will travel into the NEW YEAR,  keeping  in mind that it is another holiday, along with the temptation to drink alcohol - which, if you have been paying attention - you know is not really a good idea.
