I made it through surgery yesterday. Because of the anesthesia, I couldn't drive for 24 hours. I ended up laying in bed watching TV. I had some smoking thoughts. I didn't buy into them. It was scary though because that is the situation I was in when I relapsed the last time (Laying in bed doing nothing all day). It is a situation I have to deal with though because I can't be busy all the time. I learned from reading Freedom from Nicotine that cravings or using thoughts won't hurt me. They pass. And each time I don't smoke I weaken the psychological cues that tie me to smoking.
I'm doing okay right now. I don't want to smoke. I'm at a follow-up appointment. I hope the doctor says everything is okay.
