As I reflect on 1000 days quit, I was lucky that my quit itself was unplanned which is not the norm. However when I did decide to stay off cigarettes after returning to familiar routines, the cravings flooded in but I had a streak to protect as a motivation.

You know those times, when you regularly used to head outside for a smoke. I don't know about Australia, but here in Canada you're not allowed to smoke inside public places. My husband built a greenhouse o...
