So I think I had a personal breakthrough when it comes to managing those disgusting cravings that used to pop up every now and then. I used to use sheer will to fight it off, by telling my self "I can't smoke a cigarette. I shouldn't smoke. I wont smoke." All the while I subconsciously thought about the words "smoke" and "cigarette."
Thinking that way only made things worse. Every time I told my self that, my craving would get stronger and strong, but I never caved in and it eventually went away. I realized that if I started thinking about things that I WANT to do rather than things I DONT WANT to do, my mind would just focus on the thing that I want. For example: "I want to drink some water. I wanna for a walk. I want to check my emails. The table is brown. The doors open..."
Doing this drowned my head with different thoughts and as long as I am not concentrating on the craving, the craving was fading away quicker and easier. I hope you find this helpful and I wish you the best of luck on your quitting journey.
