I had a couple times when I wanted to smoke today. I was around someone smoking in front of me. That seems to be the trigger. I had some old thinking today, use rationalizations. I just tried not to latch on to those thoughts. They aren’t true. Fighting them just makes them bigger. It’s scary to still have those thoughts, those beliefs, still inside me. It reminds me of when I was trying to put off quitting. I bought into those thoughts, even though I felt that they weren’t true. Having those thoughts reminded me that I could relapse. I had the good sense today to distract myself, make my daily commitment not to smoke, then wait for my focus to shift elsewhere.
