I have not smoked for a number of years but I still get an occasional (1 or 2 a year) VERY strong craving. I have not yet picked up but I know I could. For me, If I think about where the 1 cig will lead, that is usually enough. Or, I remember how hard it was to stop and how bad I felt before, during and after the early withdrawal. I never ever want to quit again and I am afraid that if I do pick up I might not be ABLE to quit again. So far those thoughts when contemplating a cig have kept me smoke free but I want more 'brakes' for when the next one hits. Please tell me what keeps YOU from picking up. We who are ex-smokers need all the help we can get. I found this group a few days ago after I was hit with a terrible craving when we found out a bad diagnosis for my life parter, soul twin, husband of 31 years. Thanks for 'listening'.
