Got You! Caught You!

      The third day of my quit I was in my friends patio and his brother (the one I was to influence to quit by quitting myself ) walked into the space smoking.

      He knew I had quit two days before and he didn't do it to unnerve or upset me. The workshop adjoined the patio and that's where he took his smoke breaks.

 

      I didn't run away.

      It made me think. It made me realize not smoking was my choice and I laughed at the simplicity of that.

 

      From that point on, every time I thought of smoking, I laughed. I laughed because I caught the thought before it could take hold.

      In a weeks time I began automatically thinking of laughing. I had turned the urge or thoughts of smoking into a game, not a struggle.

 

Got You! Caught You!
