Dealing with urges to smoke

December 20, 2014

As an ex-smoker, you’ll have urges to smoke. Sometimes the urges are physical, as if your body needs a cigarette. At other times, they’ll be mental — feeling like you deserve a cigarette. And sometimes you may want to smoke because it’s a habit.

People don't lose their quits because they stop using nicotine

December 20, 2014

They lose them because they talk themselves into smoking

What is the nicotine doing to keep you from putting a cigarette in your mouth?

The answer is NOTHING!

Until you decide you won't smoke anymore, you will fail.

A nicotine quit aid does nothing to stop you from smoking.

CELEBRATING 1600+ DAYS SMOKE FREE!!

December 19, 2014

Hey OLD friends and NEW!  I just realized that I've passed the 1600 day marker for my quit. I happened to see  a commercial this morning about the changes a body goes through from the moment a person stops smoking.  Counting my blessings I came here to check on things. It is so wonderful to see all the new quitters and the other older quitters still being strong and committed to their quits.  

Some of you may remember that I almost lost my eyesight a few years ago... Read full post

Insomnia is one of the more common complaints people quitting smoking experience

December 19, 2014

For Example:

Catch sleep whenever you can (except at work or behind the steering wheel)

If your insomnia originates from your quit, it will typically pass for most within the first month

Are you ready?
