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.
