    I struggle with this too. I now take my dog for 3 walks a day, ha! I work from home and I would go outside for a cigarette break every hour. Now I just go outside and look around at the neighborhood and take deep breaths. This doesn't cause cravings but I need the break. The association with smoking is getting weaker.

    G’day My little saviour was a packet of tic tags. Just like a cig packet, I had something to carry around and worry about losing. I got to check the packet to make sure I wouldn’t run out before I could restock. Most important I could allow myself a little reward inside a building even among non smokers! And it was socially except able to offer them around. My blind friend got to recognise me by the fruity smell rather than the stinky smoke smell. I still keep a packet in my car... they are still my reward for staying calm in traffic without OD ing on to much sugar! C

    Only had 2 smoking dreams after quitting. The first was at 3 weeks and the other at 6 months. Nothing since. I do recall the immense sense of disappointment that I had failed my quit immediately upon awakening....and the tremendous relief when I realized it was only a dream. To me this was more evidence that smoking was a consuming thought, even subconsciously, for several months after I quit. P.S. The first dream I was in bed smoking and all of my coworkers were sleeping on the floor, face down and butt naked. A legitimate nightmare for sure.

    Wow, beautiful and very impressive. Well I went to Planet Fitness Today for the first time. Kind of got the feeling I am really out of shape when most of the machines were on the lowest weight and I couldn't get them to work. I did the whole room that worked on all the different parts of the body on timed intervals. Bicycled for 30 min and walked for 30 min and then I enjoyed the rub down chair. I might be a little sore tonight but I actually feel really good mentally.

    A new benefit I just realized today. My skin is not as dried out. I used to get those painful skin cracks on the tips of my fingers, especially in the winter months, but this morning I realized I hadn’t had one since I quit smoking

    Not a new year's resolution on purpose, but tonight is my first night without a drink. I'm going to not drink during the work week. I'm not happy with how my mid-section looks. A 5 pound tire. For all my good eating habits, exercise, pilates, plenty of sleep - I'm convinced that the daily wine is the culprit. So far, OK. Though it's only 6:24 pm. I'm looking forward to dinner and then curling up and listening to my iPod until I fall asleep ?

    I saw on the NOPE thread that our friend, @Tammy had bad smokey dreams last night. It is always horrible to realize how deep out addiction goes. Our subconscious is ripe ground and it takes time to purge. It is a wake up call to how entrenched addiction is. But, there is also a physical reason, it is about the cilia in our lungs removing tar. Joel says interesting things about Dreams in this video, how the cilia are continuing to clean up while we sleep which may generate smells and taste of tobacco and trigger the dream. Should you want to delve deeper into the psychology of this, here is a study on PDF. Dream of Absent-Minded Transgressiohttps: An Empirical Study of a Cognitive Withdrawal Abstract Among 293 smokers abstinent for between 1 and 4 weeks, 33% reported having at least 1 dream about smoking. In most dreams, subjects caught themselves smoking and felt strong negative emotions, such as panic and guilt. Dreams about smoking were the result of tobacco withdrawal, as 97% of subjects did not have them while smoking, and their occurrence was significantly related to the duration of abstinence. They were rated as more vivid than the usual dreams and were as common as most major tobacco withdrawal symptoms. In subjects abstinent for 1 year, 63% recalled having dreams about smoking. They had on average 5 of them, and about a quarter occurred after the 6th month of abstinence. Having dreams about smoking was prospectively positively related to maintenance of abstinence. An explanation of this finding based on the association of smoking in dreams with aversive emotions is offered.

    Bet it was hard to hug that little one goodbye. Maybe with all the money you will save not smoking, you will be able to visit more often. Grandchildren are such a joy!
