Operation Miracle in Action - Day 3

Day 3 is going well so far. I found last night that emotional triggers are far stronger than habitual triggers. Still challenging, but I remain smoke free.

Operation Miracle in Action

As of yesterday I am officially a non smoker. I am calling the process Operation Miracle in Action. Two days is the longest I've gone without a cigarette in 10 years. I was a smoker for 21 years. My smoking habit was old enough to drink legally. (That's my little smoking joke.)

This is all part of my environmental plan, but it took a while to set in motion.

In case you are wondering I am using Chantix in conjunction with EMDR to reduce the urge to smoke. So far it has worked phenomenally well. I have almost no physical withdrawal symptoms at this point. I am also following all the suggestions provided by the associated Get-Quit program. I have found that the challenge is surmountable.
