you just have to catch yourself when you think of smoking.
Just catching yourself stops the progression of thought and action.
This hit me the third morning of my quit. "A HA you didn't get me!"
It made me realize smoking was a choice, a decision and not something I had to follow through on.
You weren't missing smoking before you were a smoker
It's unlearnable and it's unlearnable easily if you just stop and think before you would've automatically acted.
Smoking becomes reflex, ritual, routine, and repetition as much or more than the physical addiction.
Stop telling yourself a dog can't learn new tricks and start unlearning smoking.
