8 hours and counting...

January 31st, 2008 at 01:44 pm

Since DH and I had a cigarette. He's having a pretty rough go of it but I'm doing okay for the most part. I keep thinking, "Hmm, I think I'll go outside for a smoke.." then realize that I can't/won't. One end of the straw I have is chewed up, though. Ha! And I'm trying not to eat everything in sight...

    I just passed my one-year anniversary. God I still miss smoking! But only in a psychological way that it was a really fun ritual to do. Most of the physical cravings went away in the first few months. I don't think I've used the nicotine gum for about 8 or 9 months. I still have a big box of it at home as a mental crutch, though.

    One thing I did this time that helped (not much, but hey, I'm still quit) was I looked up the herbs that go in herbal cigarettes, bought them in bulk (from a local organics store) and mixed them together, then rolled them in cigarette papers. Total cost for a whole bunch of supplies: maybe $5 or $10. I'd take these faky cigarettes when I was going to an outdoor cafe, so if other patrons were smoking, I could (sort of) smoke too. You don't get the nice buzz, but it mimics the hand and mouth movements, so it helped calm my cravings a little. I did that for the first two or three months, just occasionally.

    My blog is so messed up! I can't see my entry but I can read your reply. Thanks for the input.
    Last time I quit the desire to smoke was minimal and blessedly, it seems that way so far this time.
    My other half is the one who really struggles but hey, we've saved between $9 and $10 today so far by
    not smoking! I remind him of that and it helps him. Thanks for the info on the herbs but we'll just chew on our straws...it helps. Wink

    Julie, I put some code in this morning that royally messed everything up. And whatever it did is preventing me from seeing most anything. And I can get to the control panel but can't edit and save anything now. I posted on the forum about it and emailed Jeffrey about it so hopefully one of them will check it out and figure out what the problem is.
