Now I'm on my 26th day I think my brain has finally accepted that I'm determined not to go back to smoking so the full frontal attack has largely gone away.

I've noticed recently that it keeps throwing "I'll just have one" more and more at me. Intellectually I know that this would be a really dumb move & impossible to keep to so there's no way I'd risk it, but it's interesting how it keeps slipping into my consciousness.

Been a while since I did a stats update:
Smokefree days: 25 days
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 750
Total savings: $672.50

    Looking good Bruce and you are not alone in the 'just one' thought department - I am over 200 days quit now but still get the odd thought - thankfully they are not cravings, just thoughts - nearly a month quit for you - brilliant

    ^^ totally agree with above, you are certainly not alone with those thoughts but they are all lies, damn lies... the nicodemon monster is thrashing its tail, tempting you to feed it. Keep starving those thoughts, they will eventually weaken. And woohoo for your first month down in a few days!

    That "I'll just have one" thought is a kicker for sure - It happens when you least expect it too dammit



    Great Stats Bruce :)

    Well done Bruce on your 25 days. Yep, those thoughts keep on popping up, but we can and will remain in control. You are doing so well. Keep on keeping on.

    Well done, Bruce for getting through the 'just one' thoughts. Keep reminding yourself it's just a lie, it's never just one. You're doing great :) :)
