This was brought on by someone's blog who relapsed today during a crisis

Perhaps this will provide some insight as to how you can get your mind to work for you in a crisis.

When I quit, I asked myself what could make me smoke again.

The one thing that I reasoned with myself and agreed upon was if someone came to my door and told me my wife and daughter had been killed in a car crash.

This is making an agreement with yourself allowing only one reason that might make you choose to smoke. This way when a situation comes up, you have to think about it before you smoke.

I made the same type of agreement when I got off the patch. I carried a patch with me and promised myself if I was seriously considering smoking, I would put on that patch and wait an hour rather than light up.

These were commitments to myself.

Perhaps it would behoove/help some of you to search your souls for the very worst fear of something happening and make similar commitments to yourself?

It might stop you from ruining your quit over something you have no control over.
