I am so proud of me! It has been week ago today that I quit smoking! Even though there are still times that I could go for a cigarette I have not smoked emoticon . One of my triggers to smoke is when I have drank alcohol. Last Saturday I did have a few drinks but guess what I let the urge pass and I did not give in. Everyone is saying how proud they are of me and that they are surprised that I am going so good not smoking. I have decided to use the Nicoderm patch as a back up and I that that has helped me as well. I have made a list to remind myself of my "go to's" which are things that I can do instead of smoking and they are as follows.

-brush my teeth/use mouth wash
-do a crossword puzzle
-drink water
-talk to someone about it
-take a breath and relax
-think about the positives and negative of not smoking and smoking
use the patch
