Once I quit, I never fought myself. Yes, I thought about smoking, probably as often as expected of anyone quitting after smoking for 40 years but, I never considered it.
Never thought about bumming one
Never went to the store or even out to my truck
I just never let it get that far.
You have the same control.
Find it and use it. Learn to distract yourself from smoking thoughts from the beginning by realizing they are only thoughts and you will get there..
Living is more than thinking about smoking. I did that for 40 years.
