Cutting back

My quit date (which I am very skeptical of) is December 1.  Previous to this, I want to cut back to something under a half pack.  When I started using Ex Community I was smoking 1-1/2 packs per day.  Yesterday I cut back to 1 pack.  This may not be the way Ex Community recommends, but it feels good to me and I will continue on to cutting back until I am down to less than 1/2 pack before my quit date of Dec 1.


I have used Deep Breathing to deal with cravings.  This seems to be fairly easy to do.  I also try doing something (an activity) to change my focus.


For some reason, if I go out and do errands I can go 1-2 hours without a smoke.


Anyway, that's where I am.
