I've finally started reading the site a bit. I've made it through the initial "Learn About EX". Woot! I'm now into my "Tracking your Cigarettes" to find the cycles and triggers that induce me to smoke. I jumped ahead just a little bit and did pick a quit date. November 3rd.
Today, I begin to deny myself immediate gratification once I get the urge from a trigger. Like, right now...I wanted to schmoke a schmigarette. But, instead I've decided to log in here and type up a topic in the group area. This has taken me five minutes so far. The little "deny yourself" tutorial suggested that waiting five minutes was a good starting point, so I'm going to go running outside like a little girl and smoke :)
See you guys when next I want to smoke.
