I Think I figured It Out

I had a thought this morning.  Not unusual except this one actually makes sense and helps me to understand why mornings may be a continued problem for me.  As I was having an urge I recognized that in the morning I am less aware that I don't smoke anymore.  It's as if my sleeping at night has erased the work I have done to quit.  It's like smoker's amnesia.  Most days I can shake this feeling off within an hour, but in the early morning it is still fresh and somewhat overwhelming.  Now that I have had this Ah Hah moment I'm wondering if I pray before I go to bed or journal before I go to bed, or even meditate before I go to bed I can ward off the smoker's amnesia by imprinting in my brain that I have quit and I don't do that anymore.  Well, it can't hurt, so I am going to try it.  Make it a wonderful day.
