Challenging day

Posted in Hints and tips 26 Mar 2017

Well at Day 16, I could have caved very easily. Had a really ordinary day today and I admit, I sooooo wanted to just give in and go buy a pack. It really hit me that days like this can occur and finding new ways of dealing with crappy days can be a challenge for sure. I ended up putting music on and zoning out whilst going for a walk. I wish my surgery would just happen already so that I can return to power walking and lifting weights. Got through the day, but it took all I had.

Thanks for listening.

    As red-67 said, you beat it and now you are stronger! Remember, the stronger the craving is the stronger you become at defeating the nico demon which gives you increased endurance to fight the next craving. As long as you can continue to get through one more minute, hour, day, week, month eventually the memory of smoking will become less and less. Continue to keep yourself busy and distracted when the cravings hit. You got this!
