Good Morning, Claire. I like how you put it about being "more fully present in the moment". It's important to recognize and appreciate the positives we experience when we quit smoking and think of them when cravings hit.

I'm glad you're doing good on Day 2, Claire. Stick close to the forum. 

Hugs,

Andrea

Have a wonderful smoke free day!

Something I've learned with all my quit attempts and my now current quit is if I want to stay quit I truly can never have even one again and you know what I'm finally okay with that I've accepted that. I've heard over and over there's no such thing as one cigarette but I kept testing that theory and tried to smoke less, only on weekends, one every hour. It doesn't work that way not for me anyway and I believe I finally learned my lesson Not One Puff No Matter What.  At 12 days quit it's actually gotten a lot easier than the first few - 5 days but I could never see past that now I see that I actually can go without a cig and feel ok with it too, grateful.  I know I'm still early in my quit but I am actually hopeful I can do this, I am doing this,  one day at a time.

One of my favorite things is not smelling like it. I hated knowing how bad I smelled when I smoked I love now that I smell clean and pretty.
