Unexpected cravings



A blog post about a craving at this time*? That must be one serious craving. 

And it is!


I know that I have gotten a pack in the middle of the night on more than one occasion. Get out of bed, put clothes on, get in the car and drive for 30 minutes to the nearest 24h gas station so I could smoke one and sometimes 2 before falling asleep without the thoughts of being out of cigs in the morning.


Time to take a step back and analyse this craving:

What I need right now: sleep

What triggered the craving: pattern based, being tired and hyper at the same time.

How I deal with it: analyse the hell oit of it, blog about it, breathe and do some relaxation exercises. 


Note to self: get some "goodnight" tea tomorrow

Those early days are trying for sure but you CAN get through them. Since smoking is no longer an option, you just need to find another way through those difficult moments.They are tough for sure but they will not always be with you. Better days are in your future :)

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
