I did the work to not smoke yesterday. Something clicked in my mind last night. Smoking is using (as in using drugs). So is taking the lozenges. The constant up and down of nicotine levels, having to ingest nicotine several times a day in response to cravings--that is the cycle I have been trying to escape. I actually feel clean today. I'm not constantly worrying about going into withdrawal. I'm focusIng on the psychological triggers and the lies my brain tells me trying to get me to smoke again.
