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.
