Smoking to me is like comfort food to some people. What I mean is, I attach emotions to smoking. If i feel accomplished, i smoke. if i feel sad, i smoke. if i feel frustrated and angry, i smoke. if i'm bored, i smoke.

I have tried again and again to quit but i fail because i didnt realize that i have attached emotions to this habit...also, when i tried to quit, i filled up my urges with eating. Now to not gain weight and rescue my cardiovascular system, i need to separate my emotions from the action. If i get the urge to smoke, i need to identify if is it because of what i feel at that moment and what activity i can do instead. Maybe, i can do 10 push-ups every time the urge comes or do some breathing exercise or read a book.

The good news is, every time I tell myself to quit, I smoked less and less cigarettes. I have decreased my cigarette consumption by more than three-quarters of what i used to smoke so I know I am getting there.
