Just a memory?

Blog Post created by Daniela-3-11-2016 on Sep 14, 2017

After 552 days one is not supposed to taste smoke in their mouth, right?  Wrong, this has just happened to me.

 

I am drinking coffee in the living room, while mom is cleaning some Chinese Eggplant in the kitchen, around the corner from me.  I grilled the eggplant early this morning, and while drinking my coffee I feel like cigarette smoke in my mouth.

And I realized it is just a memory, the fainted smell of the grill from the kitchen combined with the coffee taste in my mouth, and puff, I think I am smoking again!

 

How powerful our memories still are after over one year of not smoking...

I know, I learned it here, it takes at least 2 season changes...

 

So for all you newbies out there, you are not alone! 

It just takes NOPE, I DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE, or whatever other mantra is your favorite to get us over the hump, the bump, whatever, over the craving...or nasty memory...or romanticizing the act of smoking...NOPE, SINAO, and I definitely DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE.

 

My triggers today...
