Today is the first day of the rest of my life (again). I had quit for 15 days, then succumbed to stress and (punished myself?) consoled myself by smoking. To tell the truth, it was difficult to get going again as I was quite sick, but managed to get back into it again the next day.
I really don't want to be doing this (quitting and smoking) for the rest of my life, so here goes again today. Will go for a run on my way home from work tonight, eat then go to bed and read a book.
I will make a list of distractions that I can refer to when I feel like smoking, even if the distraction is just 'tidy up fingernails', it is a positive achievement rather than the negative of smoking. I'm going to spend some time meditating about what it will feel like to not some again ever. Thinking about not smoking ever again makes my stomach do flip flops. Taking one day at a time is good, but I also need to look at the future as a non smoker, so that I can't use any excuse to start again.
I think I must be nuts to have such a strong dependency on tobacco.
