Feeling Closer

Posted in Getting started 28 Sep 2015

I have been reducing to quit. This last week I have decided to make some quit attempts. I have trouble postponing those first few. Then a couple in the afternoon and then another couple in the evening. I have taken to having a shower when I get up. Then I walk my dog to the shop. I buy the newspaper and do some puzzles. Today I did all of that without smoking.Yahy.

    Hi Penelopejane. As many have said on this site, it's all about changing habits. I relate to what you said about the first few for the day. I replaced my morning trigger of having a latte with actually having breakfast and getting out of the house. Great that you have developed a morning routine. Stick with it and before you know it, it will become your morning habit and you will forget about the first few. Well done!
