What a tenacious addiction this is! Here I am more than eight years quit. I am doing my Manic Fall Housecleaning, and have been working on my bedroom. I came downstairs to get something to drink and to take a break. As I'm coming down the steps with a bucket of dirty water and some things to put in the dryer to freshen up, the thought invades, "Gee..." Easy to dismiss; not a crave, but I am STILL astounded that I even had the thought. I have found, though, that the "reward" association is the last to leave me, I guess because I have only had eight years of Fall Housecleaning to relearn it. I am now here reading and responding on the site, enjoying a gingerale over crushed ice,....and creating a NEW association.
Be careful out there!
P.S. Of COURSE I didn't smoke!!!
