September, the start of fall, the crisp autumn air, the changing of the leaves. As for myself, this is the first fall that I'm experiencing as a nonsmoker. I find myself now reminicing about boy, I remember I used to chain smoke over that, I would have been smoking up a storm after going through that, and on and on and on. Of course, I smoked over anything and everything. I lit one of those up from the time I woke up to the time I went to bed. There was maybe a few hours in the day that I didn't have one burning somewhere. Sometimes I'd have two or three burning through the house. Must have thought they were candles and were guiding my way. How disillusioned I was. Then I came here and learned about addiction and triggers. Triggers are things that make you feel that you need to smoke, you have to smoke, things you associate with smoking.
Just remember, those triggers are everywhere and will pop up from time to time. It's called life and life doesn't stop when you stop smoking. Life is full of stress, frustration, anger, sadness, loneliness. It's important to learn how to act differently to the reactions that we did for so many years. It's also important to look on the positive side instead of the negative. Check out Positive Affirmations for Success: You can take what you want and leave the rest. And you can always find and contribute your own.
