I'm so glad to have found this group.
I've quit many times before -- sometimes for several years at a time. My ex-husband and I took a very expensive "stop smoking" course through the Rand Corporation 45 years ago before my daughter was born. They told us about the triggers -- no coffee or alcohol and to this day I don't really drink alcohol (not my drug of choice -- bu...
If you're planning on quitting give up that morning coffee for a couple of weeks.
Call the Quitline.
I really benefit from talking with the counsellers 👍
