Dealing with Cravings

From the tip jar:

 

- Everything you did as a smoker, you can relearn to do as a non-smoker.
- Triggers don't create relapses, smoking creates relapses.  Don't be afraid of triggers.  View them as learning opportunities.
- Ask yourself what it was like to smoke, what it was like to quit, and what is it like to not smoke.  Which is better?
- Adopt a day-at-a-time mentality.  Think of the "whole cow" view.  Do you want to eat the whole cow all at once?  Or, one juicy steak a day?
- I'd rather be an ex-smoker who sometimes thinks about smoking than a smoker who is always thinking about quitting.
