Day 17 and still fighting the good fight. Picked up my husband after work drinks and stayed a little while to catch up with the guys. Didn't even phase me that they were all smoking around me.

This is always a good sign for me. Once I get over the hump of socialising and not getting the urges I feel in control.

Now to try and overcome my emotional triggers (fingers crossed they don't come up). They are always my crux :(

    Your post has made my day Awhi. 17 days is AWESOME!

    The emotional and habitual triggers can be every bit as challenging as the physical, but i know you can take control of them as well.
    Any thoughts of smoking are just that.........thoughts .....and we can decide not to act on them.

    Stay staunch Awhi, and if you get a fit of the heebie jeebies, know that we got your back.
    I'm a believer!

    Day 17 is fantastic Ahwi. What is really impressive is you being around smokers and not feeling the need to smoke. That shows real strength.

    If the emotional triggers do come up, just hark back to the work drinks and draw strength from that-that you are in control.

    Great to see you here and sharing. Thanks for that.

    Great to see you Awhi and great that you are coming up to your three week mark. You’re doing really, really well. If emotional situations trigger you, put a plan in place because at some stage, life is going to throw something at you so it would be good to have a toolkit ready for that. In the meantime, plan a reward. You’ve earned it.
