I'm finding the only time I'm really craving a cigarette is after work. I decided I need a new "something" for after work. Decided that since I pay for a gym membership and drive past it every day on my way home, that I'll trade my cigarette for an hour at the gym. That worked out and I felt so good about myself that I treated me to a mocha frappe from McDonald's. So I burned about 350 calories and drank 650, lol.
Update: 9 months now smoke free! Unfortunately haven't broken the mocha frappe addiction and haven't visited the gym in months.
Update: 4th of July weekend will be my 1 year anniversary, smoke free. Glad to see I have begun to return to the gym, exercise classes and working out at home. I have also managed to switch my addiction from McDonald's to Starbucks, where they have the Java Chip Frapaccino Light which at least gets the calories down from almost 700 to only 200-260, which I can work into my diet.
