Sometimes I just need to remind myself that cravings pass

Posted in Quit experiences 07 Jun 2021

Today is day 8 cold turkey. Mostly I am adjusting very well to being a non smoker. Now and again I will have a strong craving however it usually passes quickly. When I am experiencing a strong craving I remind myself that mostly I don't think that much about smoking and when I do it passes very quickly 😊

    It is good that you have simply made up your mind Jessfreeof and do not waste time and energy on debating with mere thoughts. After all, cravings, are just thoughts. A reminder than you are in control and the beast is starving. It no longer can tell you to drop everything and do it's bidding. You are winning. Just remember than just one puff can send you back to Day 1 or to being a lifetime smoker.
    You're dong great. Keep up the positive thoughts and the desire to be a happy non-smoker. You CAN do it!
