Quitting in 2 days
I want to say starting wasn't easy and I know stopping wont be either. Trying to find out what my trigger truly are because they are not as simple a what was listed. Frustration is one, and I guess I am going to find out what my other triggers are.

    Hi Smarty, welcome to the forum.  There are many triggers that can stop your quit from going forward but you can take control and change them for the better.  Frustration, stress and anxiety are going to affect you wether you smoke or not so there’s really nothing to worry about. By quitting, you’ll enjoy so many benefits that will outweigh any difficulties you may have. Better health being one and the most important of all.  You have 14 days to cut down on your cigarettes before your quit date.  Try to get rid of some of the things that will remind you of smoking like ashtrays, lighters or anything else that you can associate it with.  By doing this you can take charge before the nicodemon can. Give the quit coaches a call to arrange a plan that will improve your chance of leaving this addiction. They can be reached at 1-877-455-2233 and everything is free. No pain, no gain so they say.  Just give it all you’ve got and stay close to the forum and we’ll help you achieve your maximum goal. 👏👍🙋‍♀️🚭🎗✋

    It is not only about trigger, it's about patterns. My patterns were simple to track, the emotional smokes, or stress cigs are reactive smokes. Those are not usually part of your the pattern. Focus on your must have cigarettes, the other ones, we can help with strategies to reduce your anxiety. One of our coaches would be happy to help if you want some extra support 1-877-455-2233 :)
