OCD Smoking

Most of my smoking was Obsessive and Compulsive. Like while I was on the phone talking, texting or especially waiting for pages to load. I'd want to chain smoke Compulsively. With waking up and after tasks I'd Obsessively think I should have a cigarette.

Using a straw to "puff" on has kept my mouth and hand occupied. It even helped me cut way back from over a pack a day to 1/2 a pack before my quit date.

Just realizing this was what was going on with me helped tremendously. I hope this helps someone else. 

 

Mostly I'm wondering what other strategies others out there are using to deal with this kind of problem. Any ideas or other thoughts on OCD smoking?
