Day 5

Blog Post created by stAn3 on Jul 28, 2017

Feeling some tieredness, depressed mood, and anxiety the last 24 hours. I am consciously choosing to feel these feelings because I know that they won't trigger me to smoke as long as I feel them and don't smoke in response to them. 


I also used used some tools to overcome a trigger at work. I noticed that I felt left out when my coworkers went outside together to smoke. I imagined what it would feel like if I whet outside and smoked with them. I realized that I did not connect with my coworkers when we were outside smoking together. I was focused on smoking, not socializing. I would feel more connected to my coworkers if I went outside and did not smoke, because I would actually be present. Cravings tend to go away when I face them and get in touch with the reality of smoking. I can do anything I did while smoking just as good or better if I am not smoking.
