Breathing Free

Donna, I found it really important when I quit smoking years ago to identify the specific situations that made me want to smoke long after the 30-day period of the physical addiction. One that surprised me for me was fatigue. Although as smokers we all say we smoke to calm ourselves down, since nicotine is actually a stimulant, it makes sense that the "calming" actually comes from stopping whatever you are doing, walking away from it physically or emotionally, striking the match and the time it takes to smoke the cigarette. I've always been a bit of a workaholic and the stimulant factor gave me that little burst of energy I wanted to finish a task when I was already tired. Solution, stop and take a rest when I am tired. Duh!
