really making up my mind! The problem with other times I have quit is that I’ve let the part of me that wants to smoke to have a say “in my head” too often. I end up giving in. Giving in just ONCE feels like failure, so I give up and go back to smoking. This time (I’ve made it two weeks now), and here’s the main reason: I made up my mind not to entertain thoughts of smoking. I believe it was C.S. Lewis who wrote about wrong thoughts: You can let them fly through your head, but you don’t have to invite them in for afternoon tea. With resolve, and fewer arguments going on in my head, I’m winning. If you need support, but can't get it close by, there's a community support group on the internet. Click on the title for the link.
