At four months, I have entered a definite comfort zone, however, it seems that within a day of making any kind of mental pronouncement to myself that I'm not going to ever smoke again, some little junkie thought flashes through my brain. It's gone so fast, it's almost like it didn't happen, but it did.
Yes, the act of saying things out loud, or in our case, posting thoughts, can sometimes turn on the ol' lightbulb.
Duh!!.....I am an addict and I have to live it one day at a time.
...........but I digress................I found a little helpful thing to re-inforce my quit and thought I would share. Perhaps I am in the wrong forum, if so, can it be magically transplanted to the proper forum. Thanks.
Every month, on my planner, I highlighted my quit date (the 10th) in a BRIGHT, LOUD COLOR. I only highlighted ONE following month, knowing that I could make it at least one more month. This worked really well and around the 9th month, I stopped doing it because I knew I could make it another month.
