I don't think everyone could do that....but when it gets tough, think of your sons.
Break your normal routine. Stay away from the places where you usually smoked.
Wash everything in your house/apartment. All the carpets, clothes, etc. Maybe paint the walls.
Log your progress..thoughts. Maybe you could share them one day?
Munch on carrot sticks..
Go to the gym...
Go to Church..(hey, how did that get in there???? LOL)
| bet you that there is not one among us who does not know at least one person. I can think of three right off the bat.|
|And of course, there is this wonderful site..|
My cousin John Polito..who I found last year when I started my research, runs the site and I've sent it to several people. Some have said it helped.
I've started going through it and man, is it ever full of info.
I smoked Camel nonfilters for forty years. They finally caught up with me two months ago when I had my heart attack. It's been almost ten weeks now since I stopped but I still do get the urge once in a while especially when I have my occasional beer or scotch. The longer you go without a smoke, however, the less frequent the urge. My son who's about your age also quit after I had my heart attack. He decided he'd like to be around as long as possible for his daughter Angelina.
I have quit twice before. Once for over a year and another time for about six or seven months. Hopefully, this time is the last. My boss has threatened to fire me if I start smoking again, and my wife has threatened divorce so I've got some additional incentives to remain smoke free besides my grandkids. I'd also like to be around to finish this genealogical journey I've started.
You might want to check with your doctor about using Chantix which is a new prescribed medication which blocks the "I NEED A CIGARETTE" urge in the brain.
