I am brand new

I am brand new to this site.  My quit date is June 1st.  I am ignoring my triggers right now and only allowing myself to smoke outside, without coffee, alone on my deck.  I am hoping this will get my trigger-fighting muscles in shape for June 1st.  Hoo-rah!

   I think you are on the right track. I'm new too, and that is what I did for 2 wks before I bought any patches. I quit a day early because I ran out of smokes, and it was a choice to buy a pack or buy patches. But, I really really miss the cigarret I had on my front porch with my first cup of coffee. I'  am drinking my coffee though a straw now, and today I felt strong enough to sit on my porch and drink it. It felt good to do my normal routine, even though now I'm drinking with a straw. But, I'm not smoking. You can find substitutes too. Just use your imagination.

Good Morning, Pops! I am glad you are enjoying your smoke-free life so much! Me too! It's well worth the small struggles (okay large sometimes) we go through, isn't it? Congratulations on 127...
