While I am a person who strives to understand, I am also an emotional creature by nature. I always let my emotions guide me whenever I am unsure of the best thing to do. When a strong crave hits while I'm angry...BAM ...relapse. Honestly that is the reason I ALWAYS fall off the wagon. I let my emotions rule me. It can be a good thing, but in the case of quitting smoking, it is detrimental to my goal. And if in that moment I could just remember to think logically instead of emotionally I would not go & undo all my progress.
Which leads me to the bonus motivational quote of the day 😁 : "Don't do something permanently stupid because you are temporarily upset". These 2 quotes are powerful to me. They can be quite helpful when I am on the fence. LOGICALLY I know I do not want to smoke, but when I am angry or upset, sometimes even when I am depressed or feeling bad about myself my go to has been to smoke for so long that naturally that is the very first thing that pops in my head. I need to learn some coping skills I guess.
I'm posting from my phone tonight so I hope this comes out ok.
