Aaron Tusmith wrote:one thing that still helps me is to remember how little of an effect each cigarette had on me. I typically felt worse after each cigarette and I couldn't detect any particular sensation or physical feeling that I enjoyed. All that smoking gave me was a feeling of lethargy and more difficulty in breathing. Towards the end I kept saying to myself "these things don't even do anything!" "they just make me feel worse!". I remember when I very first had a cigarette it gave me a sort of buzz and euphoric/weird feeling, not long after, those sensations went away and the desire to smoke was pretty much a mental thing, an activity I felt I had to note in the log so to speak. Looking back on how pointless an activity it was makes it easier for me to rationalize not smoking anymore. I just began to fail in seeing the point in investing so much in an activity that gave me no pleasure at all, in fact subtracted from it. Either way, you will be so proud of yourself when you don't want them anymore, stay strong, you will love the results!
