Cravings Emerge

Blog Post created by DANIELA040220 on May 2, 2020

Hi everyone, 

I have managed not to smoke for 5 days now and yesterday I started having the cravings for a cigarette. I felt so in control and great about my life the first 3 days, I didn't think I would have any. It dawned on me that I could be going through grief (I read one blog post here about it too). What I think is that I'm depressed because my addiction is losing. That doesn't make any sense, but I mean that the nicotine "monster" is dying. So, my strategy for staying on track is: do everything I can think of that is totally different from smoking (being addicted)! That means, going for multiple walk, eating healthy and enjoying it, wordsearch or sudoku, reafing whatever I can get my hands on to educate my addicted brain, talk to ppl around me instead of craving the next hit and therefore being antisocial, and so much more...
