    NOPE!
  3. For me, it's been difficult at times but I have such a different mindset from previous quit and I believe this had made all the difference. Whenever a strong crave hits or even more frequently, what happens is, I get this feeling of anticipation that something very "good", something that will make me feel complete, is coming. It's not even In the form of a thought- it's a bodily sensation and an emotional anticipation of a "great" thing that is about to happen. This typically occurs just prior to the times when I would normally smoke, like after getting home from work, after a meal or right before going to bed. When the realization that what I was feeling was the anticipation of having a smoke, and I wasn't going to have one, I would get hit with strong feelings of deprivation, disappointment and anger. I learned, through the education I've acquired on this board, to view these episodes of difficult feelings as an essential part of the healing process. This mindset have been incredibly beneficial to me. Over the course of the last almost 6 months, these feelings have steadily lessened in frequently and intensity. I look at this as validation of my way of thinking I must be healing through these experiences because they are losing their potency. The symptoms of any illness lessen over time as the body heals from the illness. I believe the same thing is happening here and even this belief, in and of itself, gives me comfort and hope.

  6. Hi there!

    Boo has a winning strategy there, Albert. You can follow that or anything else that works for you but you can bet that whatever method you choose, Boo's method will, perforce, be followed at the same time... Bottom line. We're here if you need support or need to vent but rest assured you've made the very best decision you could have made. Now, KTQ! (Keep that quit)
