It often happens - you reach 100 days, one Year, even 2 Years and feel cravings like crazy! Now, why would that be? With me, it's because I rewarded myself with a Sickerette! The habit took a long time to break. I broke it by especially celebrating in special ways. One of my favorites was a long walk around the local park lake. It's a good long walk to get around the lake and in Spring and Summer it's especially beautiful! Besides my quit date is the first day of Spring. I also followed G's advice and bought myself a remembrance item or went out with my Wife and Sons for dinner. Celebrating your milestones in "new" healthy ways is very important because you are answering that quit journey question - "What do I do instead?" So celebrate often in as many different ways as possible. It's important! I've know so many people who relapsed on their smoke-free anniversary or 100 day milestone. Day 101 and 366 are just as important but the celebration makes them more likely!
