You are simply fighting the desire to smoke. The desire to smoke is not an order from some higher up. You build that desire by talking it up in your head. It's much easier to overcome if you accept that you've quit instead of talking up some need to smoke in your head.

We never really enjoyed every cigarette every day. We may have enjoyed one or two. The rest were mindless repetition

You have the power to overcome the desire to smoke by remembering what you say you want for yourself. A good positive statement is "I don't do that anymore". Say it out loud before the thoughts of smoking take over. Say it more than once.

If you aren't here to quit smoking and be free of it, why you are here? Make a plan and put it in gear!

Onward and Upward!
