I pretty much got over my usual triggers (driving, coffee, after meals, etc.) after my first week of quit. I've even had a few occasions with alcohol and was barely phased. Although I did limit myself to only one small drink each time.
In my 66 days, there have been plenty of times when I was nearby a smoker, and I did not feel any great desire to smoke. This is not to say I no longer have cravings. I still get some doozies. They just don't seem to be triggered by anything. Until today. I ran into an old-coworker this morning. It's been 2 years since I've seen him, but in the previous 20 years, I smoked more cigarettes with him than anyone else. In our 8-10 work hour days, we would have at least 8-10 cigarettes together.
We spoke for about 20 minutes catching up. But within seconds of seeing him, I was overcome with cravings. I barely heard a word he said. All I could think about was, "I hope he doesn't light up, because I'm not sure I could not bum one from him". When I got in my car, I actually toyed with the idea of driving to the store to buy a pack. Then a calendar alarm went off on my cell phone. I looked and saw it was a reminder of my annual health insurance screening exam tomorrow morning. This is the first year they are testing for nicotine use. I guess timing really is everything .
