I read somewhere that when you quit smoking it's important to set a goal / goals for yourself. So I set a daily goal - I will not smoke today. At the end of each day, I smile and congratulate myself for my success. However, it's not easy. Yesterday (day 9) was an "evil addiction" fight in my head. I thought I'm doing good - why can't I just smoke one cigarette a day? Impossible!! I know myself ... and I've been down this path before. For me, I am unable to smoke just one cigarette a day. One puff leads to one pack. So I fought with the addiction all day yesterday and I WON! I didn't smoke.
