....Default is a word that if we use computers we understand. If you don't intentionally change a default, it will keep going on. Like in your word processing. The font will be the way it was set originally unless you change it. Well, to make a long long story as short as possible, we are like computers. We have placed defaults in place and unless we take a hard look at them they stay in place. Imagine this.....the alarm goes off or you wake up as you normally do in the morning and all the actions that follow are sort of automatic...and if one of them is lighting a cigarette its a default. I realized my cigarette defaults were first thing in the morning, after anything to eat, getting in the car to drive,having a coffee, drinking a beer....the list goes on and on....then other defaults kicked in...like coughing, getting anxious if i was low on cigarettes, using breath mints etc. So, I grew weary of all this automatically reaching for a cigaretter. I realized I lit a cigarette everytime a comercial came on television or any time I was bored. Also, when i was doing my weekly budget for my spend as you like money, a portion was going automatically for cigarettes and over the years that amount was growing exponentially. Finally I got fed up by feeling I was controlled by these defaults and I had a chat with my doctor and decided to quit smoking and learned of the Champix plan. I am only three days into it, and I can feel that it is already working for me.....so glad I finally got off my butt and did something about it.
