Hi everyone, was out walking with my wife yesterday morning by the side of Botany Bay. This is one of our favourite walking areas and was such a beautiful day. The sun was shining, other people were walking, the planes were taking off and landing, fishermen were out on the boats....what i am saying is all was exactly as the last time me and the wife were at that place since i quit smoking. It then while walking "came" on me an urge to smoke because when previously walked at that place i have always done so with a cigarette in my hand.....(wife never smoked). I asked the wife if she had any peppermint lollies or whatever and after putting a lolly in my mouth the craving disappeared. The feeling for the urge was awful it made me kind of think "why you not enjoying the walk with a smoke like usual?" I began to feel like i had lost a best friend. I quickly turned around my thoughts by saying"breath in the fresh air" why breath in tar? and to top it all off......there was now a "No Smoking" sign in the area....beauty that completed my ambition to bring me back in focus. I then enjoyed the rest of the 3km walk with no more temptations. The consensus of this story is that some people like me will find the "habit" the hardest to break not the craving.......you somehow must kill the habit but not run away from it to some different locale or situation. That is my opinion. Hope this helps some of us on this site. Cheers.
