Came to the board because this morning I had a rough patch. Just wanted to get my thoughts down and, hopefully, get some support. I'm taking a lot from people now and hope to be able to give back once I get over the first few weeks. I had thoughts about smoking. Not necessarily cravings or urges. Rather, a behavior was missing. Albeit a bad behavior, but some part of the morning. I had gum and water, so I used my tools. However, instead of thinking about what I will do with the money I'm saving or becoming healthier, which has been part of my success in not smoking for 4 days, wasn't quite working today I chose to not think at all and to try and empty all thoughts from my mind. Thankfully, I made it to my destination without stopping to get cigarettes and decided to post on the boards. Thanks to all for reading this. I appreciate all the support I have received. It's made a big difference in this quit.
