Triggers are hard

Posted in Hints and tips 08 Feb 2019

It is so hard to find a way to remove yourself from the smoking triggers. I booked a cruise for 3 days and left the smokes behind. This was a completely foreign environment to me and helped me not only with the triggers but also the inability to buy smokes onboard as this was a domestic cruise and no duty free shopping allowed.

    Good for you :)
    Once you face those triggers, and just KNOW that you don't want a smoke, it gets easier.. Just do what works for you, and keep going :)

    Well you are smoke-free and nicotine free both so congratulations! How long has it been for you? The arguments in your head will stop once you accept. Eventually you do. One way or the other. I already know which will win in your case. You didn't make excuses because of the trip , you think positive. You've got this!

    I did quit cold turkey and haven’t stumbled so far, thank you for asking Happiness.
    Still having lots of conversations and arguments in my head though.
