One of the things that I liked about smoking was the instant reward (sick reward - but none the less) instant gratification of desire.
Long after falling nicotine levels were over with memories of the "aaah" feeling would surface (triggers).
Everyone's quit is different my choices wouldn't necessarily work for anyone else. I will say that not smoking is a lot more effort in the
beginning, part of that work is figuring out what you are feeling, what you want and what you need/want to do about it.
Now rather than smoking when I'm tired I rest, when I'm upset I take deep slow breaths and try to put things in
perspective, if I'm angry I may yell or scrub something or go for a walk, when I'm hungry I eat. When I want a little reward for work well done I
might read a chapter in a good book or play a game. Everything I ever did as a smoker I now do and do better. But all of these responses had to be learned
because each of those situations used to be automatic signals to smoke.
Maybe this is way more than you had in mind. For me smoking had invaded every aspect of my life and once exorcised life is simpler and much more
