Over a month smoke free

Posted in Staying quit 11 Oct 2019

I’be got over a month behind me and looking forward to staying smoke free. Anytime my mind wanders to considering having a smoke I think of a big red stop sign and it’s worked really well. I know it’s my mind that will take me back to smoking. My physical health has improved so much. Whiter teeth, more stamina at the gym, warm hands and feet are all big benefits so far. I’ve gained a bit of weight but it’s been worth it.

    Congratulations on a month. Well Done! I think your idea of visualizing a stop sign would be a great contribution to a page i am trying to erect full of hints and advice from our community for new members (and old). Please follow the link and if you and everyone would make a contribution i think it would be a great starting page for newcomers to know what to expect and how to deal with situations. Thanks to all for your co-operation!

    Congratulations, Ginger123, we have great visual images to present to ourselves when we take the time to sift through them. The stop sign is unique, and I am sure many would like to try this technique. Well done for 1 month.
