Thanks guys. I will try all of them. I really don't care for opening up because the roots are so deep but there's no time like the present.

I've never been a smoker; tried it many years ago and just did it as a late to teen to think I was cool......you need some healthy distractions, phone a friend, paint your nails and continue to feel good in that wonderful choice you made! I'm proud of you!!!

Barbara .....that's what my friends call me! Never cared for the name Barb.

Make it a blessed and healthy day! IT IS YOUR CHOICE!

Remember how special you are and how you are soooooo worth it to be healthy and fit!!

Hi, I also quit smoking, on Christmas day last year. I was so suprised at all the emotions that rose up in me. I didn't realize how much I used cigarettes to numb my feelings. To be honest, I am capable of doing that with a lot of things: shopping, eating, smoking, drinking. Well, I have most all in check, now comes the eating, hence I am here on Spark. Anyway, the point is, for me, I had to feel the feelings, whether it be fear, hurt, disappointment...even the good feelings were a trigger. And I agree, the exercise really helped me and talking about it or journaling I have heard helps.

yes exercise your cravings away. My year is coming up soon and I went cold turkey as well, but I did it after losing 40lbs.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Physically you are over the ciggies... That's why they are stinky for you...
Emotionally though... Could you be ducking feelings like me tonight. I am so aggravated with my aggravating husband! He wants to separate in 2 months, and if it weren't 4 the money I'd already be long gone. So tonight it was chocolate.. I'm trying to be at peace with his unrealistic un called for rages about nothing.

i.e. I went to my brother's house with him to find out how to do ebay.. He was willing to help us put something up but hubby didn't wanna admit that he is clueless what the username and pass is... So, we had a nice talk and then left. So he's mad at me because I kept him from finding out the information he needed. What? How about asking a question. Like I did. He is sooo out of hear. I have my period, I have my chocolate tonight.. Tommorrow I am on the straight and narrow. While he is out.. Whatevering with whomever... I set up paypal so I am ready to put up auctions. And I might just start tonight... He either needs to help or get out of the way... He's hindering me and that's uncool.

so since it's not physical what's bugging you? What is the emotion just before the urge... And congrats on laying off the toxic fumes. I have such respect 4 those who manage quitting!

Emma

I need some serious help ASAP. I eat for all the reasons for EE. I am also a newly non smoker for less than a year. Thanksgiving weekend will be my anniversary. I still get craving for cigarettes which turns me to food particularly snacks. I vow not to go back. Once i am around them, they stink horribly. I didn't gradually stop, I did it cold turkey. I have nervous energy all the time. Gum only delays it. Menthol cough drops have no effect. i know its mind over matter but any suggestions?
