I see The addict in me trying to pull my attention from the Now with memory cravings.
When I get in the car... I watch
after I clean the bathroom... I watch
break time at work... I watch
talking on the Phone... I watch
exiting the grocery store... I watch
When I see someone smoking... I watch
There will be more memory cravings along the way on this journey, and I will... WATCH
And say "there it is" When I watch with out judgement cravings lose their power. They are just thoughts. Nothing more.
I pray to have the compulsion to smoke removed
Then I tell myself I'm not losing anything
This has been my practice along the way so far. I know I have a long way to go. Yet I committed to go to any length for victory. Today I will honor that commitment on the 4th day of this exciting journey.
