Pay attention to what you eat

I quit on March 2nd and haven't had a puff since.  I just joined the group.  I've made it through two weekends alone and done fine.  It's been hard but I'm going to do it.  I don't have a choice.  The Dr. told me I have a moderate case of enphysema and if I quite it won't get any worse and may get a little better.  I want to live long enough to see my grandkids get married and have a family.

One thing I found was that I needed to think about what I had eaten if I had a severe craving after eating.  I discovered that I can't eat green onions or anything with vinegar (like salad dressing) or I want to smoke a whole pack of cigarettes.  It has really helped me since I started paying attention to my craving after I eat.
