Okay, so the urge hits. This is a medium one. It can be hard to describe. Is it a hunger, a wanting? And how close does it bring me to breaking down and smoking? More than yesterday? Less?
So I ask myself these questions, and I realize the very worst urge has yet to be that bad. If I had a choice between one urge, and one shot in the gums at the dentist to deliver Novocaine, I would pick the urge in a minute. So what makes quitting so hard?
Tomorrow makes quitting hard.
When the dentist comes at me with that needle, I know it will be over it one minute.
But when I have my urge, my desire, I foolishly ask myself :
When will this end?
Will I feel this way tomorrow?
Will it be worse?
How long can I hold out?
Really, 30 days?
Can I really hold out?
So my struggle is not with the "Nicotine free rushes", it is with my fears and doubts. I need to enjoy the fact I am smoke free today! The rest will take care of itself!
