Hello & welcome Viola! We are so glad you are here, and congratulations on making change with your smoking.
Thank you for sharing as well - you are so very aware of your triggers, and where you might need some extra
annemac provided some great suggestions: changing up your routine so, for example, you are not sitting in the usual place, can really help. Some people find they have to switch out tea (or coffee) for another warm beverage, and even hold something between your fingers (straw/stir stick/pen/pencil) to help keep temptation low.
Its important you still get your quiet time - its just going to be a different kind of quiet time now, Viola. A walk around the block can still be very peaceful and give you time with your thoughts before every one else wakes up. Great idea!
Congrats to you both, Viola and annemac, and every one taking it one day at a time. You're doing SUCH a great job.
