I wasn’t anticipating any crave triggers this week. At least not due to the holiday. No one in my family has smoked for years. So instead of the holidays being associated with smoking, the opposite is true for me. I rarely (if ever) smoked on Thanksgiving or Christmas.
I did have a mini crave today. I had someone take me downtown to pick up a package. He dropped me off in front of the building and circled the block. When I came out and saw he wasn’t there, I immediately wanted a cigarette. Because that’s what I used to do when I worked downtown. Fifteen years ago! My ride arrived in less than a minute, and the crave was gone a minute after that.
I have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! But I’ll be thinking of all who are struggling to get thru.
