Happy Easter to you Anthony!

So, stopping smoking is about so much more than deprivation and craves and withdrawal. It’s about setting and reaching goals. Digging in and rising above and letting go and persevering and acceptance and healing. We tend to get a bit focused on the feeling of withdrawal and all that triggers in the mind and we lose sight of our goals and the fact of how if we really listen to our bodies we really do feel better. It is hard at times for the brain to rise above those feelings of angst....but when we do....oh it is oh so good and such a wonderful place to be. Glad you are persevering Anthony. We all can do this, and I do believe each of us is much stronger than we know. Smoking stole that knowledge from us and enslaved us to this belief that we cannot do and be without our fix. Well, I am doing and believing and I’m just fine without it. Hope all you are too!

Happy Easter to you Lori,

I agree, goals are important, for progress, and also can be a means of diverting our attention away from cravings.

Here's to goals

Kind regards
