How have I fought the cravings

To answer your question Lia. Whenever a craving has hit me over the last 3 months I have done some form of exercise, eating but usually I try to have something healthy or some activity which has occupied my mind eg reading a novel, reading the inspirational stories of people on this site, funny and upbeat videos like the carpool kareoke videos, cleaning, etc - anything that will make my mind focus on something else until it passes. I also took your advice and gave my craving a name "Cruella de Ville" and I tell her that she is wasting her breath because the answer is "no I do not want a stinking cig" and the more I have been resisting, the less that evil friend has been asking. The saving of money and not smelling like an ashtray are also great motivators.

    Proud of you, Iwillbeatit. So glad Cruella de Ville will not be trying to tempt you when you reach a milestone. No doubt Cruella and Margaret are in cohoots and will try to think of a way you should reward yourself. And we all know what that reward is going to be... Sooo good to say no to that vile craving. Power to you!
