Feeling Confused And Losy

Tonight I can't think of anything else that would make me feel better than a cig. I can't go for a brisk walk, because my kids are in bed, I don't want to eat because my 'reward' for quitting has been 10lbs that's not going anywhere, I think I've had the worst day and I know a cig won't change what's happened but before it was at least something to do. I could sit outside and have a tea and a smoke and clear my head. Now that I don't smoke i don't know how to do that anymore...
I'm a big tea drinker, so now I still sit with my tea and a doodle pad and pen instead of smoke. It's the time out rather than the smoke I think. But I also love my bed lol
It's your inner-addict, checking to see if you're 'serious' or not.
Otcogoto..... I see you are reaching 6 months and this is the dangerous time....All the excitement and rediscovery is done and we are getting complacent. Complacency is certainly the biggest cause of failure.....This really is the time to take up a new hobby or something but you must stay busy....You are doing so well in your quit and I know the feeling where you are now...Stay strong and just get a lift with with a smoker and smell his car and clothes and then you will not remember the nice of a cigarette but the bad... !
